Map Collections (iOS)

Last Updated: Sep 20, 2017 10:50AM EDT

A Map Collection is a special folder that contains a set of maps and treats them as a larger collective. This allows you to pan to adjacent maps within the collection without having to reload another map. Map Collections work best when maps are geographically adjacent to each other, although maps can overlap and be of different extent and size.

To create a Collection:

  1. View the Maps List
  2. Tap Edit
  3. Tap the 'Add Folder' icon
  4. Tap Collection

To change a folder to a Collection:

  1. Tap the Maps tab.
  2. Tap the Information icon of a folder.
  3. Tap the Collection setting to enable it.

Moving maps to a Collection:

  1. Tap the Maps tab
  2. Tap Edit
  3. Select the map(s) you want to move
  4. Tap the 'Move' icon
  5. Select the desired folder location


Viewing a map in a Map Collection
An inset map in the top-left corner shows the extent of all the maps in a Map Collection. On the inset map, a darker gray and a + represents the crosshair and the relative position on the current map. The blue dot represents your GPS location (if applicable). To go to an adjacent map, pan to the edge of the map and continue to pan in the direction of the adjacent map - the adjacent map will automatically load in the map view.

To jump to any map in the collection, tap a map footprint on the inset map. The vertical column to the right of the inset indicates map scale relative to the other maps in the collection.
To enlarge the inset map, swipe it to the right. To reduce the inset map, swipe it to the left. To hide the inset map, swipe it left until only a tab with arrow shows. To show the inset map, tap the inset map tab or swipe right.
When maps share the similar extent but are of two different map scales, you can pinch to zoom to the larger or smaller scale map by zooming in or out and holding when you reach the maximum or minimum zoom level.
