What Can Our Parcel Data App Do Offline?

In our last update, LandGlide® – Our Leading GPS Parcel Data App Has A New Look, we covered the new features of LandGlide. If you are unfamiliar, LandGlide is a mobile app where you are able to obtain and download spatial and parcel map data. The new features include everything from enhanced visual appeal to improved accessibility. One of the most valuable updates is offline mode – available for both Android and iOS devices.

What To Know About LandGlide Offline Mode

Offline mode for our GIS data tool ensures you never have to worry about being out of cell range while you’re out in the field. Whether you work in real estate, forestry, utilities, or simply enjoy outdoor recreation, a land parcel app can be a beneficial tool onsite.

Before heading out in the field, select and download maps of any areas you will be accessing, and you’ll be able to use the offline base map to view property details by tapping or swiping the property information panel.

In addition, while in offline mode, you can drop pins to keep track of certain locations within an area or add notes to property records. The dropped pins work exactly the same way as they do when the app is online, and information is synced and stored to your profile once the app comes back online.

Please keep in mind that when using offline mode, the search functionality will not work since the GIS parcel viewer app needs the internet to make real time data requests.

How To Use Parcel Maps in Offline Mode

Once you download a map on an Android or iOS device, you’ll be able to use the offline parcel map while in the field.

A Step-By-Step Guide To Using The App Offline

  • Open the app, go to the main parcel map, select the hamburger menu icon and choose ‘Manage Offline Maps.’ This will lead you to the ‘Offline Maps’ page.
  • Once you’re on the ‘Offline Maps’ page, you select the ‘Plus Button’ to create your offline map.
  • After creating the offline map, you can zoom in and out to focus on larger or smaller areas. You can name the map and drop a pin to keep track of specific areas for organizational purposes.
  • Once you’ve selected all of the information you need, you can hit ‘Create’ to begin the download.
  • The length of time to download varies based on the parcel maps density level.
  • After the download has finished, you can test it out by turning on ‘Airplane Mode’ or turning off your data or Wifi.
  • You have access to your offline map no matter where you are, and anytime you need to do work.
