Solocator is a GPS camera for fieldwork. Overlay and stamp photos with GPS location, compass direction, altitude, date & time taken + with Industry Pack (IAP) capture editable notes such as project name and photo description, street address and UTM/MGRS coordinate formats. It can auto save 2 photos to camera roll at once - Stamped photo and original high res photo. You can also view photo direction and location in map view and navigate there. So now you will always know where and when a photo was taken and how to get back there.
TAILOR THE INFO YOU CAPTURE
You can choose what information you want to overlay on your photos to suit your fieldwork.
- GPS Location (Latitude & Longitude in various formats) ± Accuracy
- Compass Direction – Bearing
- Altitude (Metric & Imperial units)
- Date & time
- Show Compass
- Show Cardinal points in Building mode; e.g. North or South Elevations of a building face.
- Option to use abbreviations or Unicode characters for direction, position and altitude.
WORKING WITH CAPTURED INFO
- Options to take and auto save two photos to Camera Roll at once; one with stamped info and the other as an original high res photo.
- Photos are sorted by time, location, distance from current location and by project name (if Industry Pack purchased).
- View photo direction and location in map view and navigate there
- Save photos with metadata in Exif format to camera roll
- Share photos on Facebook & Twitter
- Email photos from within the app including:
• Exif metadata
• Compass Direction
• GPS Position ± accuracy
• Date & Time taken
• Street address (if selected)
• Elevation of building face viewed (if selected)
• Links to maps so receiver can navigate there easily
INDUSTRY PACK (In-App Purchase)
REFINE AND LOCK GPS LOCATION
Ideal for those working in and around buildings; to improve your GPS location. You can also use it to lock the position of the asset or subject you’re photographing as opposed to where you’re standing.
Stamp your photos with "Project name" & "Description". The project name field could be used as job or policy number etc. You can also go back and amend project name or description or just add the notes later when you’re in the office.
PROJECT NAME USED AS FILE NAME PREFIX
Photos taken with project name at the time of capture are saved with prefix, which works with photos emailed. Photos with a project name will also be sorted and grouped by project name. Project names are also automatically used as email subject lines.
SWITCH OFF CAPTURE MODES – GREATER FLEXIBILITY
Switch Compass, Building and Street modes off and just show GPS info bar on top of photos. Gives you more flexibility on what and how you overlay info and show more of the photo.
Customize your photos by stamping your own watermark. e.g. company name, team or photographer name.
Selecting street mode overlays photos with street address.

- Fixed camera zoom - thanks Everton.
- Bug fixes.
Works great! I only wish there was a way to export to Google Earth.
Works well with my job in the construction industry
I use Solocator to document construction site visits. It is the most used apps on my phone.
As a contractor I work for various Municipalities, Counties and the State. This app has served its purpose time and time again. It is the best app out there. The details you can add to the photos just makes reporting a breeze! LOVE THE APP. Throwing it out there. Can you make an iPad version now that the iPad Pro offers flash with its camera?!?!
Just what I was looking for. Perfect for documenting site visits. Thanks for making this app!
I've been using the app for a few months and it sometimes behaves in a buggy fashion. It will crash suddenly or fail to delete photos when I ask it to. This last item in not good if you need to save space.
This app is a pipeliners dream. I can't wait until the Google earth functionality comes out. THANKS
This is the best app I've found for documenting utility structures while locating underground utilities with GPR. pdmllc.org
Love that it takes two pictures one with the subject and all of the information and one with just the subject of the picture.
I love this app.
Solocator - GPS Field Camera to stamp photos with location, direction, ... #Itunes #Navigation #TopPaid -…
Very useful app with photos plus GPS coordinates.
The easiest to use app to stamp your photo with the compass direction you were looking ( and GPS coordinates). It has great sharing options, too.
(First off, the app rarely ever crashes for me. I think other users need to try either reinstalling or recovering from backup. This usually fixes 95% of problems.) This app got a decent overhaul a few months ago and the developer did NOT disappoint. The strength of this app lies in its ability to overlay key information about a photo on top of the image itself. This app lets you do this easily. I use it for the environmental consulting/remediation/engineering industry. This has easily saved me hours of time and effort. I typically use this for excavations, general job site photos, and soil samples/borings, just to name a few. Adding compass orientation, date/time, and site name, etc. on the photos allows a person who was not at the site a chance to understand where they are facing in x,y space - by providing a quick reference point. This basically takes a confusing photo and makes sense of it. Plus not having to rename files back at your computer saves an enormous amount of time. Other great benefits within the app include mass uploading to Dropbox (save to camera roll, then open Dropbox - simple - now you have your photos on your computer), edit the text or units on the photo at anytime, and line up your photo using a crosshair overlay. Overall, this app is solid and I use it on every job site.
Would be nice, but crashes iphone .....
Very useful tool for surveying, construction site documentation, and GIS data collection. Would get 5 stars if developer would make following improvements: 1. Email subject was auto-filled with the entered photo name instead of "Photo taken with Solocator". 2. Email text included elevation (improperly labeled as "alt" in the app). 3. Could send short MMS text with just lat/long, elev, brg, Google map link and photo direct to another smart phone. In other words need more efficiency and utility and less fluff and advertising in the communication part which makes this app so powerful.
Works we'll for documented events. Stands up in court very well. Needs calibration too frequently in mho. Great tool.
If it did not crash when I take a pic... Every time.
I love the options and it's certainly what I need . Thank you
App crashes every time I take a photo with it, both this version and the previous one. I tried reinstalling it, but that did not help.
I use this app (with industry pack) on my construction sites. I am able to put in a description and location of the photos and then I'm not wondering why I took that photo hours later when I get back to my computer. The only problem I have is that when I try to transfer a large number >7 photos to my camera roll, it does not always transfer all of them and I have to go back and forth a couple of times to make sure I got them all transferred.
