[] Reston, Virginia - ClueTrust(R) today is pleased to announce the immediate availability of CartoMobile(R) for iOS(R), a major upgrade of the robust mobile GIS application. Field data collection has never been more intuitive and flexible. Previous versions were a featured History & Geography product many weeks running in France. CartoMobile 1.1 is immediately available worldwide in French and English through the App Store.

With CartoMobile, access to customer raster imagery has been made easy. Just copy your imagery onto your device before you go into the field. No preparation on a desktop or server is required to use your imagery as CartoMobile adaptively caches imagery for quick access without requiring preprocessing. Customers have reported good experiences using TIFF files as large as 10GB.

Field data entry applications, such as incident reporting, inventory management, and natural resource exploration other location-based data collection, are a snap with CartoMobile's flexible form creation system. Choose from text, numbers, list selections, pictures, timestamps and more to ensure that collected data is uniformly formatted and coded. CartoMobile configuration is designed to be accomplished without the need for IT support. Within minutes users can be collecting new data and working with their previously collected data.

Version 1.1 adds the ability to enter new lines and polygons, provides support for myriad projections automatically, and enhances the raster support with adaptive image caching and easy import. Just as in previous versions, CartoMobile works on your shapefiles directly, so you can just drag and drop your files at any time to move them to or from your device. No importing, no exporting, and no conversion required.

Version 1.1 extends and enhances the ability to work with WFS and WMS servers by increasing compatibility and performance. These capabilities are essential for organizations with the need for real-time access and updating. CartoMobile doesn't stop with these impressive features.
