Magic-Create-Note-Android-TerraGo-WWhile change is constant, one thing that has become standard is the use of handheld mobile devices. Smartphones and tablets are used by almost everyone and the professional surveying community is no different. The process of data collection for specific purposes often needs to be tailored to each project type, yet traditional surveying methods are not flexible in allowing customization easily.

TerraGo Magic, a custom app designed for both iOS and Android platforms, simplifies the process of designing a custom application for specific clients and needs.


Register now for a GPS World webinar on May 25 to learn more and see a live demonstration of how TerraGo Magic can build a custom enterprise app from start to finish in minutes.


With TerraGo Magic — now available in version 2.0 — an organization’s end users can rapidly build cloud-enabled iOS, Android and web apps, customized with their unique branding, workflow and features, without the expense of mobile software development, maintenance and operations.

Surveying firms can install the tool in their mobile devicew to enable the specific collection and sharing of important data that can vary as needed. This data can overlay Google and Apple Maps and allow attachments of images and video. Overall, the app avoids the time-consuming coding process, and could significantly improve work flow for many firms.

Distribution for the customized app is through the App Store for iOS and Play Store for Android.

“TerraGo Magic means we can assemble different apps with exactly the features the customer needs at the click of a button,” said Ben Chadbourne, project coordinator at Ameresco. “With the latest version, our end users have even more flexibility and visibility into the app they’re building. Not only can they turn features on and off but they can preview the app instantly from the app studio, allowing them to publish a custom-built app without having developers build it from scratch.”

“TerraGo Magic is really about flipping the script on the app development backlog by enabling end users to assemble apps with proven features, exposed as configuration options in an easy-to-use interface,” said Dave Basil, vice president of product development at TerraGo. “It’s the power of the ‘write once, reuse many’ adage, but instead of limiting the user base to professional developers, we’ve extended it to enable masses of end users to build their own apps, creating a productivity play for the entire enterprise.”

TerraGo Magic features are operationally proven from a global customer base and field-tested across numerous industries for all types of workflows including data collection, mapping, asset management, inspection, survey, remote workforce management, dispatch, customer service, mobile forms, field reporting, advanced GIS, high-precision GPS and other field operations.
