Designed for use in the great outdoors as a GPS and navigation aid, ActiMap is your best companion for outdoor and backcountry activities such as hiking, cycling, mountain biking, ski touring, and most things except caving…
ActiMap comes with a small starter library of online maps (map sources) pre-installed, and with the ability to easily add your own from the ActiMap online map sources library, or manually. The starter library includes:
~ OpenTopoMap: European topographic outdoor maps with contours and hillshading based on OpenStreetMap data
~ HikeBikeMap: Worldwide hike and bike maps based on OpenStreetMap data
~ OpenCycleMap: The OpenStreet cycle map
~ ArcGIS World Topo map: Land cover and World topographic maps from various sources hosted by Esri
With a focus on selected National topographic maps which are not based on OpenStreetMap data, the online map sources library currently includes those for Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, and the United States. These include:
~ Kompass: National topographic maps of Austria and Germany
~ Norwegian Mapping Authority: National topographic maps of Norway
~ UK Ordnance Survey Landranger and Explorer type outdoor maps from Bing (*)
~ IGN: Topographic maps of France from géoportail
~ USGS topographic maps at 1:100000 and 1:24000 of the USA
You will also find World satellite imagery. This library will be updated regularly, and you can start importing straight away. Be sure to keep coming back!
Regions of maps can be downloaded for use offline, and you can record and display tracks of your journeys.

Note: When purchasing ActiMap, you are only purchasing the functionality the app provides, and not a license to use the mapping data. The usage and licensing rights of the maps (and potentially of downloaded GPX tracks) you access are the property of their providers, and you are kindly asked to honour them. All online maps in the starter library and the ActiMap online library are also publicly accessible online for free via their respective websites.
(*) Bing Maps, while publicly accessible at bing.com/maps, requires a key for access within an app such as ActiMap. The embedded ActiMap key is a basic limited-use key. As such, permanent on-going free access to Bing Maps is not guaranteed, and will be reviewed based on usage.
