Intermap Technologies, a global digital mapping company, today announced the availability of its AccuTerra App on the App Store. The AccuTerra App offers iPhone users the ability to purchase and download detailed map bundles covering millions of square miles of the contiguous United States and Hawaii, including special national and state parks. AccuTerra by Intermap was named best iPhone OS 3.0 Beta App by Apple at its 2009 World Wide Developer Conference.

The AccuTerra App is a GPS navigation app that fully leverages the In-App purchase functionality of iPhone OS 3.1 to allow users to purchase additional map content on the fly. The app uses Wi-Fi connectivity to load highly detailed map content directly on the device and leverages the iPhone’s GPS capabilities to allow outdoor enthusiasts to use the app anywhere -“ even where there is no network coverage available.

“The NEX ap database created by Intermap coupled with our extensive experience with enterprise and government mapping and the revolutionary power of the iPhone OS allows us to best serve recreational outdoor enthusiasts who want to make the most out of their adventures,” said Michael Bullock, vice president, Intermap Consumer Electronics. “We’re proud to have developed a superior app that loads maps for millions of square miles of America’s national and state parks, monuments, forests, and many other recreation areas, while also providing the user with the ability to easily capture and share their experiences in the great outdoors.”

The AccuTerra App allows hikers, bikers, sportsmen, climbers, and casual outdoor enthusiasts who own an iPhone to view their topographic surroundings with a degree of detail previously unavailable, while allowing them to track their adventures and share with friends and family. The app tags photos and the location they were taken during an adventure and easily stores and shares the entire experience via email or posting directly to Facebook. Additionally, once the adventure is over, the AccuTerra Walking Tour feature lets the user replay the entire adventure directly from their iPhone.

The AccuTerra GPS App is available for $0.99 from the App Store on iPhone or at www.itunes.com/appstore/. Using the In-App Purchasing feature, users can access a Map Store to download map data bundled in a variety of packages; state bundles, state and national park bundles, and special interest areas across the country. Map bundle prices range from $.99 to $2.99 and are automatically integrated with neighboring areas as additional bundles are purchased.
