Description of what a Premium subscription contains and the reason why we have paid content.
Cloud storage and synchronisation
Premium subscribers, who has logged in, may upload their POIs, routes and GPS recordings to our server. In order to upload your data, you first choose in the menu and selects “Upload objects to server”. The progression is then displayed in a dialog.
All locally created data must be uploaded before downloading data from the server. A warning is given if this is not the case.
Access to registered data in map portal
Premium subscribers can log in to our map portal http://norgeskart.avinet.no
Tables for the different data sets can be opened by using the Temakart button. From the table one can delete, edit and create objects.
When you select “Create route”, a + button for adding points and a cancel button is made available.
After adding the first point (it is positioned in the center of the screen when you press +), buttons for deleting the last point and storing the route are also displayed.
By selecting a point in the route, one also gets buttons for deleting selected point, moving selected point and for adding a point on the line segment which is colored yellow.
Keep stored maps for ever
When the Norgeskart app was originally developed, the Norwegian mapping authorities posed restrictions on how long applications could keep the maps (2 weeks). One could also not use their services for commercial purposes.
The Norwegian mapping authorities has now lifted these restrictions, but we have decided to still delete stored maps after 2 weeks for users without a subscriptions. The reason for this is the great amount of development hours it takes to develop and maintain the app.
Extra map layers
Pro subscribers gains access to more map layers than previously available in Norgeskart:
- Conservation area
- Orienteering maps that has been made available through the site o-kart kiosken (mainly some areas in the eastern part of Norway)
- Radon awareness (coming soon)
