PhotoMaps products


PhotoMaps is an interactive aerial photography viewer and routing system on CD. Each PhotoMaps product comes with GetMapping UK aerial photography at a scale of 200 pixels per kilometre, designed to stand alone or to be used with any other MapWise or Hillwalker product.

Every PhotoMaps program also comes with the ISYS Outdoors Vector Map of Great Britain, which can be drawn at any scale from showing the whole of the British Isles to the detail of a route up Beinn Eighe. A topographical overlay can be plotted on the Vector Map, adding height cues and greatly increasing the detail of coastlines and rivers.

You can create routes with the powerful route editing system, which allows you to create routes by clicking waypoints on the map. You can generate a route profile, which gives a good idea of the climbs and descents along the route, and the route planner automatically estimates the time to complete each leg based on your personal walking (or cycling, driving, flying, etc) speed. Once your route is finished, you can download it to your GPS.

All maps can be viewed in 3D, with configurable rotation, tilt and sunlight angle. All product functions work the same regardless of which map you're viewing, and most operations are performed globally - you can plot a route on a 3D photo map, with leg lines conforming to the curves of the terrain, and when you open any other map, the route will automatically be plotted on it as well.

All PhotoMaps products integrate with each other, and with MapWise, allowing you to have Explorer, Landranger, Travel and Miniscale maps of any area, plus aerial photography for that region. If you have multiple PhotoMaps products installed, with ajoining coverage, you can scroll right across the boundary between the two programs' coverage without noticing any change.
