Editors' Review

OkMap takes raw map data and produces professional digital maps with points of interest, routes, and more. The app includes plenty of features, but the visuals are lacking.

Pros

Create a map from scratch: With OkMap and raw data, you can create a full-featured digital map with different views, points of interest, routes, etc. This software is really an all-in-one solution when it comes to digital map creation.

Google Maps integration: A great feature is the ability to import vector data from Google Maps right into the product and use it as a baseline. While the import takes a few steps, it is by no means difficult or cumbersome.

Support for GPS devices: If you happen to have a standalone GPS receiver, you can connect it to your PC via laptop to import GPS data as well as see your location in real time. Unfortunately, you will most likely not be able to connect your smartphone to the software and use the phone's GPS; at least we failed when we tested it with an iPhone.

Cons

Outdated design: As you look at the software's toolbar, you'll be taken back to the days of Microsoft Office 2003 and Windows 2000. While the functionality is there, the interface needs a major overhaul.

Steep learning curve: The software is complex. If you're serious about creating your own maps, you should set aside a weekend to get to know all the functions it has to offer.

Bottom Line

Have you ever wanted to create your own version of Google Maps? If yes, OkMap might be just what you're looking for. Its impressive array of features cannot be beaten. But if you're just looking for a navigation app for your Windows machine, this software will most certainly be overkill.

"Great program, 5 stars, currently 1 because of Google."

March 05, 2012  |  By Volcano DAn

 |  Version: OkMap 10.6

Pros

Once upon a time, I could download images from the Google Earth server, write UTM grid lines on them, and use the resulting prints with my GPS as a base for my geologic explorations of some volcanoes in Mexico. Somebody who is not a geologist cannot imagine how much easier field geology is (was) with OKMap. THAT was one of the reasons the Google Earth people were given an award at the 2011 Geological Society of America annual meeting.

I only hope there are some cultural map servers that do for other users what the Google server used to do for me.

Cons

Google rescinded the OKMap api key within weeks of them getting the GSA award thereby ruining its usefulness, at least by me. I think the award should be rescinded, as well.

Trying to use the photos without the UTM grid last week was maddening and when you're lost on a lava flow, you're really lost!

Summary

OKMap was a great donationware program but, alas, it depended on other people and the other people turned out to be EVIL.
