GPS Data Acquisition in IPhone

Recommended Posts

Thank you for the question.  I am not aware of a specific iPhone app for capturing elevation data and I have heard that the accuracy of the elevation data from a smartphone may not be accurate enough to produce acceptable results (particularly with complex terrain).  Most that are capturing elevation data are using a higher end GPS unit. Note that the app or GPS unit you use will need to be able to export the points you capture in a GPX file type.  Here is a training video with information about the terrain data import process.


Consider posting this in the Q&A section of the Home Talk forum.  There may be some users out there that have direct experience with an iPhone app that can plot and export terrain data.  Most users are not looking at the "Sales Related Questions" area of the forum.


Kind regards,
