GoGeo iPhone App: GIS, Remote Sensing, Spatial Data

A new mobile app has been launched to complement GoGeo, the web-based geospatial resource discovery tool for education and research from EDINA.




The app allows users to keep abreast of news and events in the geospatial sector. GoGeo Mobile is separated into a number of channels including News, Events, Jobs and Resources for Teachers, each containing useful and relevant resources for anyone working with Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing or spatial data.





GoGeo Mobile also allows users to perform targeted searches for spatial data, defined by keyword and/or location and return a brief description of the data; users can then forward themselves a direct URL to the metadata record so they can download the data when they are back at their desk.


At present the app is available for iOS devices.  Compatibility: Requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimised for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.


You can download the GoGeo Mobile App from the UK iTunes App Store.
