Amazing Features

Fast and Powerful Data Collection Workflow

We designed Orange Maps Collector after using countless other mobile apps and being frustrated with their limited Geospatial Data format support, offline data collection of points, lines and polygons, no ability attribute table viewing and lack of easy use and sometimes vendor lock-in.  So we set out to engineer this product to meet our specifications and realized the benefit it would have to other users.

BaseMap Picker

Select Multiple Basemaps from open source and commercial providers. Google, Bing, ESRI, Stamen, Thunderforest, Open Street Map, HERE, CartoDB, NASA and others.

Spatial Bookmarks

Save map extent/location so you can easily come back to an area. Create unlimited spatial bookmarks


View Attribute Table

View attribute table and sort and filter

Map Viewing

Configure different basemaps from our basemap picker or add a new one URL. Display Coordinates (GPS Lat Long, UTM, MGRS, USNG, Maidenhead) and Graticule Lines Our mapping engine is one of the fastest rendering of data you’ll find.

Your Position on Map

Show your position on the map via Geolocation Geolocation feature works with GNSS Receivers (GPS) or WiFi via IP Address. Display routes on the map as well.  Display North Compass Arrow Display Coordinates in multiple formats


Draw features and assign attributes

Drop a point, Ciricle, Line, Polygon feature on the map and assign unlimited keys and values (attributes) to that location and save as GeoJSON (coming soon save as GPKG).  Also, attach media to the location. Full styling control for symbology representation.

Offline/Disconnected Data

The app supports many formats of offline files and database. (Mbtiles, GeoPackage, Shapefiles, FileGDB, GeoJSON, KML)

Vector Tiles

If you load a GeoJSON file the app will automatically split the file (up to 200mb) into tiles 256×256 pixels and different zoom levels for rapid display and rendering. We also support MapBox Vector Tiles (gzipped PBF) inside MBTiles or via an online XYZ Tile Server.  We also support Open Street Map Vector Tiles with different stylesheets

GeoPackage Support

We full support OGC GPKG – GeoPackage SQLite format for offline vector features and raster tiles and elevation tiles

Search loaded Data

Google Services Integration

Full Google Maps and Places Search and Routing/Directions


Label vector features

Support for high precision external Bluetooth GPS / GNSS Receivers

Take your survey and mapping and GIS data visualization and data capture to the next level with submeter sub-foot and centimeter (RTK) positions via external Bluetooth, Serial, USB GNSS Receivers (GPS Global Positioning Systems).  You can even work with Real-Time Networks (RTN) Continous Operating Reference Receivers and other services for position corrections.

Measure Length and Area

Measure Tools allow you to measure complex linear/lines and area/polygon measurements.


Works Landscape or Portrait Mode

Responsive design that’s flexible to enable you to work landscape or portrait and any screen size/resolution/pixel density Table of Contents Collapses and Top Menu becomes side menu as needed


Catalog/Project Files

JSON Project files for Form Design
