    Hej,
    how can i import a track from a geojson or klm so that i shows up in my phones tracks?

    i sucessfully uploaded the file as geojson in “my data” on the webportal
    but when i go to manage “mine data” its not in my tracks routes or point of interrests

    and when i sync with my phone just this tracks routes or point of interests updates
    so i see this in my webportal but can not sync it to the phone as it seems it is somehow on the wrong place

      Hi

      The “My data” section in the portal is not connected to the My data themes of the app. The map portal is based on a separate product that unfortunately has used the same title as the app for data that is not sharable with other users. We will correct this in the future.

      So in order to import geojson or kml files into the app, you have to convert your files to gpx and import them from the My data lists in he app itself. As of today iOS are missing the possibility to import POIs, but it will be implemented.

      Example of online convert tools are:
      https://mygeodata.cloud/converter/geojson-to-gpx
      https://mygeodata.cloud/converter/kml-to-gpx

      Hi

      You can export the tracks as GPX from the My data lists in the app. If you have a Pro version, you can also export them from the tables in the map portal norgeskart.avinet.no. But the time and heights are not exported if you do it from the portal as of today.

      Hi

      You can open “My data” from the left panel in the app. In “My data” you can go to the tracks list. In the tracks list you can export each individual track to files using the … menu. The files are by default stored to the internal sd-card in the Norgeskart directory. You should see the exact location when you export the track to file.

      Once exported to file you can send it to yourself by e-mail using a file-explorer like ES file explorer or similar.

    The app has become great! There is one more feature I would like to see. It would be great if you could add some geological maps as possible layers, such as NGUs berggrunnsgeologiske kart.

      Thanks. We will consider including more layers.

      Is it the BERGGRUNNN250 as described in http://www.ngu.no/emne/karttjenester you prefer to have included? Could you tell us what you would use this layer for?

      What other geological maps would you like to see in the app?

      Best regards

    I just bought a Google play card to upgrade the version and support you but it’s not eligible, maybe because you are not in the same country as me, do you know how I still could pay for it?

    Hi

    I would like to use it on a sailing tour from Kirkenes via Trondheim to Heiligenhafen in Germany. Therefore following questions: how far offshore do I receive Internet with my Android tablet and which Norwegian provider is the best on the west coast.

    Also I would like to work with OpenSeaMap on a laptop, do you have a catalogue for downloading Normegian charts?

    Many thanks in advance

    Saludos de España

      Hi

      We have no exact knowledge of how far from the coast you will receive internet. And it will differ a lot. But I think you can assume that it will not be very far. We do not know which provider is the best as this will also change along the coast.

      You can find information about the maps from the Norwegian Mapping Authorities here:
      http://www.kartverket.no/kart/gratis-kartdata/wms-tjenester/
      and
      http://status.kartverket.no/tjenester/openwms.py (look for sjo_hovedkart2)

    Is there a simple glossary of the words used on Norgeskart in English?

      Hi.

      No we do not have such a glossary. But we will improve our help pages in the future (as we find the time to do it).
