Description

Theodolite HD is a multi-function viewfinder that combines a compass, two-axis inclinometer, rangefinder, GPS, map, nav calculator, and geo-overlay photo/movie camera into one indispensable app. Theodolite was one of the very first augmented reality apps when it was released in 2009, and it’s been downloaded and used by millions of customers since then. Uses are endless, and the app is great for land measurements, outdoor sports, sightseeing, navigation, and finding your way around. Theodolite is a pro grade app and is used extensively by surveyors, geologists, architects, engineers, competitive sportsmen, first responders, military personnel, and search and rescue workers around the world. Theodolite lets you take data-overlay camera images and movies, with 2X-8X digital zoom and fast image processing. You can overlay geographical data, date, time, author/company info, and project notes directly on photos and movies for later reference. The same data is written into the metadata record of images, making the image files self-contained image+data records. Third-party apps can tap into Theodolite's advanced camera functions with a new camera sharing feature. View your current position on the built in map, with optional new offline Outdoors maps that include topo contours (feet or meters), roads, trails, landmarks, campgrounds, ski lifts, and more. Live map markers continually update distance/heading relative to the current location and also show wayfinding info on the main camera screen. You can draw polygons on the map to mark things like property boundaries and trails, and import/export polygon data via KML. Share map markers and nav calculator points with other users of Theodolite via text messages or e-mail. This powerful capability opens up a wide range of collaborative uses which include team land surveying, accident investigations, spotting of wild fires, triangulation of landmarks, and advanced tactical observation and targeting operations. Theodolite includes features for serious users like a reference angle mode, nav calculator, map marker import/export, data logging with CSV and KML export (via e-mail or iCloud Drive), system-wide clipboard integration, percent grade display, mil compass readout, optical rangefinders (including a mil-based reticle, sniper-style stadiametric graphs, and a variable 4X-24X scope), and colored lens filters to improve use in dark conditions and preserve night vision. Theodolite can provide location in military grid reference system (MGRS) coordinates, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates, British/Irish National Grids, US National Grid, Maidenhead locator system, and six latitude/longitude formats. Optional US State Plane coordinates include SPCS27 and SPCS83 zones covering all US States. The optional Datum Pack adds over 230 geodetic datums to the app to improve position computation from GPS data, covering regions and countries on all continents around the world. With an optional in-app purchase to enable team tracking, you can share location with up to 20 people on Theodolite's map. Team tracking was developed in conjunction with search and rescue experts to offer a good balance between simplicity and performance. Theodolite has been shown in Apple Keynotes, featured on the App Store, and has been a #1 selling Navigation app in App Stores around the world. Since its introduction in 2009, Theodolite has defined augmented reality navigation. The app continually introduces new technologies, pushing the limits of iOS app development and taking advantage of new hardware capabilities. Find out why Apple named Theodolite one of the most amazing apps available and showed it being used to explore the Great Wall of China. Where will you take it on your next adventure? Theodolite HD requires an iPad (see the regular “Theodolite” app for use on iPhone and iPod Touch).

    We use Theodolite to take pictures of cemetery headstones and other family history sites to augment our family history information. The imprinted information helps others locate historical site more accurately rather than from notes like near the big tree, near a gate, along the third driveway, etc. Since most cellphones have GPS capabilities, a Theodolite picture can help someone find a relevant place more easily. Also, as the chairman of a small cemetery, I take a picture of each headstone and place that picture in the plot file. Now I can respond to an inquiry with a photo that has the location information. Thank you to the folks who make Theodolite, what a great tool.

    I bought this my Nav App back when it was iPhone 4 and it’s always one of the first apps I download now. If you’ve ever wanted to get your bearings, this is THE go to app. Easy to use, and packed with features ensure you won’t get lost, or can pinpoint that particular spot repeatedly. Take multiple readings to find that specific point in 3D space. I dream that one day this interface will be overlaid with the interface for FILMic Pro to make an advanced professional camera for Cinema shooting.
