mapIT: Barrier-free Micro-mapping of Small Geographic Objects

mapIT enables mapping of small geographic features on ground level with high geometric accuracy with common smartphone technology. It offers an intuitive workflow that allows to capture a geo-object with just a few simple interactions with the mobile device. mapIT is suitable for being used by people with minor technical skills and without experience in geo-data retrieval and annotation. mapIT follows the WYSIWYM approach - "what you see is what you map".
