Really Easy Mapping
Finally, here is mapping software that is truly simple and easy to use in the field. AgTerra’s MapItFast mobile app uses innovative One Tap to Map functionality for both GPS and hand drawn mapping, transforming mobile devices into versatile GPS mapping machines.
A free, personal version of MapItFast is available for Android and Apple smartphones and tablets. Mapping can be done using the GPS your device already has or by drawing objects in by hand. MapItFast makes it easy to map objects both ways:
- Use one tap to simultaneously map points, lines and polygons based on GPS location
- Use a long press to draw points, lines, and polygons by hand without using GPS
The app will instantly calculate position, distance and area data for mapped objects. Mapping can also be enhanced with geophotos taken with the device. Users have access to built-in satellite, street and topo maps, even in locations where there is no internet connection.
The paid, professional version of the app extends the capabilities of MapItFast even further. Paid users can upload custom basemaps and quick-add map objects using data dictionary dropdowns with custom symbology. Paid users have access to AgTerra’s browser-based mapping console, MapItFast Web, where administrators can organize map projects, follow field activity in real-time and set robust user and group permissions and view, edit, export and share the data with others. Data can be exported in shapefile, KMZ and GPX formats for use in third-party GIS software such as ArcGIS and Google Earth.
MapItFast’s data gathering capability is extended even further with the fully integrated Strider Forms and Reports. Custom attributes can be quickly added to absolutely any map object using the convenience of electronic forms straight from the mobile app. Strider even generates automated reports for each form submission, so you can share you field work with others instantly.
Really Easy Mapping
For your field workers, creating maps has to be easy, not complicated. MapItFast simplifies mapping using quick techniques pioneered by AgTerra. With a single tap on your mobile device, you are able to GPS or draw points, lines, polygons, and add geophotos. You can even use your own customized electronic forms to add field data attributes to any mapped object.
Carry all of your projects and maps in your pocket! MapItFast users are able to work on projects at any location, even when there is no cell service or internet. Additionally, MapItFast comes with aerial, street and topo maps, or you can use your own. Maps on devices may be configured with unique icons, layers and data dictionaries. Users can collect spatial data and complete digital forms and reports from the field. Once back in range of an internet connection, all data collected is automatically uploaded to your secure web-based account for easy access to authorized users.
Smart Digital Forms
Attributes may be added to any mapped object using one or many electronic forms. Easy to build, but advanced forms may be designed with pre-fill, validation, calculations, form logic controls and more. Printable reports containing maps and photos may be emailed from the field. APIs are also available that integrate the data with third party mapping and database systems.
All of your data is centrally managed and can be viewed in real time as map and tabular data are automatically synced to your secure account. MapItFast includes online capabilities to manage data, print maps and reports, and export to other database and GIS systems in KMZ and shapefile formats. Data may also be automatically synchronized with pre-existing geodatabases.

After entering the grower’s email address into the form, a completed report with the pertinent information, pictures, consultant’s logo and signature is emailed to the grower before the agriculturist even leaves the field.
Invasive Species Control: Contractors map their location, then complete a form documenting density and other site characteristics where invasive weeds are found. The combined information is automatically and securely upload into an organization’s backend database using a REST API.
Expense Reporting: An organization requires every employee to log time and expense details for business travel, lodging, meals, etc. A line is started in MapItFast to follow the progress of the employee and an expense form tracks which expenses are reimbursable and the names of guests if applicable; a picture of the receipt is taken for each entry. With a few other details at the end, a signature from the employee completes the form and it is synced to the company’s online account for approval by a manager.
Lab Sampling: GPS location and basic information is collected for soil samples sent to a lab for uranium analysis. The resulting data is combined with location to produce an interpolated map used by a company for mining purposes.
