Avenza Systems Inc. announced that it has officially launched Avenza Maps, its mobile mapping app, on the GEOINT App Store. Created by the United States National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the GEOINT App Store is exclusively for Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) personnel.
Avenza Maps, including unlimited access to the Avenza Map Store’s extensive catalogue of digital maps, is available for iOS devices to all DoD and IC personnel by creating a GEOINT account using existing federal credentials, such as Common Access Card (CAC) or Personal Identity Verification (PIV). Once registered, the Avenza Maps app can be downloaded without cost to their mobile device.
“With the launch of Avenza Maps in the GEOINT App Store, we’re proud to be partnering with the NGA to bolster the value of offline maps for critical missions, safety, and locational awareness,” said Ted Florence, president of Avenza. “We’re excited that our app will be officially accessible by the intelligence community and we’re committed to providing them with a mapping technology solution that has so far exceeded the expectations of our users and partners.”
The Avenza Maps app is made available on the GEOINT App Store for iOS devices through the Innovative GEOINT Application Provider Program (IGAPP). Approved DoD and IC personnel can download the app complimentary to their own mobile device, get unlimited free georeferenced and location-aware maps from the Avenza Map Store, and use them completely offline with a variety of tools including Avenza Maps Pro tier features.
