CivTAK4.0.1 Has Been Released & Its AWESOME

CivTAK 4.0.1 — The PUBLIC RELEASE*** Version has been released to the Public — “Public Release — Distribution Unlimited” in Government parlance. This is the first time that this enterprise-quality, mobile phone tools that the Government has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on has been available to the public, and it is FREE.

CivTAK has most of the features of its military cousin, ATAK, which is used by hundreds of thousands of military and government users throughout the United States and the world.

Here’s a non-exhaustive list of features:

  • Online or offline maps, including from customizable sources (but no limited license map sources like Bing or Google are supplied), and support for man, many map formats
  • 2-D and 3-D mapping, including import of Pix-3D models from your drone
  • Support for KML, KMZ and other geospatial overlays

With radios or a server, such as TAKServer* — or a competitor like TeamConnect or TakLib**, you can also do the following:

  • Team shared situational awareness (where are my friends), including chat, file sharing, pointer sharing,
  • Geo-fences (Keep track of when something goes in/out of a defined area)
  • Data packages (groups of files for complex scenarios)
  • Video display with direct overlay,

  1. Any reason why CivTAK is not being offered on Google Play? Is this something that may be considered?
