Use of Land, by Théo Meuzard

Analysis of a route and the corresponding base map before going to the place in question.
(Course downloaded from the Internet, on a site like Utagawa for example …) Ideal for discovering an unknown area, while having all the information necessary for the outing to go well.

Choice and download of the track (here on Utagawa). Then trace loaded on Go cloud and synchronized on my GPS and Land, without any particular manipulation.

Trace and corresponding base map imported into Land for analysis. Easy import thanks to Go Cloud synchronization. Then I identify the direction of the route, possibilities to cut and lengthen the route. Analysis of the elevation and the main difficulties. I mark where I can park, possible water points etc …

Example of analysis: Analysis of the profile of the course.

Other use: Creation of my track. I create my track by hand by placing dots on the background map.

I can then analyze my journey and find out what I’m getting into.

Land: Start and finish points easier to tell apart

Do you find it difficult to tell the start and finish points of your tracks apart? From now on, in Land 8.7, this will be more intuitive. Remember: the start point will always be green, and the finish point will be red. Try it for yourself!


Everyone who works with linear tracks (tracks not circular) has at some point had problems identifying the track’s start point. In Land, it’s easy to locate the points at both ends of the route, but at first glance it’s not that easy to identify which of the two points is the start and which is the finish.

Well, starting with Land 8.7, your itineraries will show up in the map window with two points at each end of the track:

Green point: Indicates the start of the track

Red point: Indicates the finish of the track

Now you will not only know where your itinerary starts, but you’ll be able to quickly identify the direction of the track. As you will see in Land 8.7, this small improvement has also been applied in the data tree.

Land: Improvements to the track editor

Land continues to evolve. Discover the improvements we’ve added to the track editor. Download Land 8.7 for free and try them for yourself!


Create track points on top of the track you are editing

In previous versions, Land’s track editor didn’t allow a track point on top of the track you were editing, even if your itinerary went through that point (for example: a route where at some point you go over the same path). In fact, if you did, the editing tool was automatically deselected.

This small bug made it difficult to draw paths that passed over the same road or intersected at some point.  Now, with Land 8.7 you can mark more track points atop the track you are editing.


Create intermediate track points by double clicking

Now, when editing your routes, keep in mind this new behaviour when pressing any track point:

Single press on track point: As before, the pressed point is selected.

Double press on track point: Land will now interpret you wish to add an intermediate point between the selected point and the one next to it.

Press track point and hold: As before, you can move the point to another location.


Create roadbook points more easily

Starting with Land 8.7, the way roadbook points are created changes slightly. These are the changes:

First: Assign a name and icon to the point you want to create.

Then: Move the pointer over the track until the roadbook point is over the desired location.



IMPORTANT: In addition, from now on you can also undo changes by pressing Control + Z (Windows) or Command + Z (Mac).

Land: Access editing and analysis tools from the route properties

In order to make Land more accessible to everyone, starting with Land 8.7, you will be able to access several frequently used tools directly from the properties of your tracks.


You just have to open the track’s properties by pressing ‘Properties’ in the button bar. This will open the properties window on one side of the interface.



Once opened, just below the track name, you will see 4 buttons. These are the tools you can use:

Open track editor: Edit the track, modify its path, add more points…

Open roadbook editor: Enhance your track by adding photos, comments…

See track graph: Analyse the track on a two-axis graph.

Send track: Transfer the track to your GPS, Dropbox, GO Cloud or via email.


A small change that will come in very handy when editing itineraries!

You will find this button in the following places in

Routes list: Next to the ‘Transfer track’ and ‘Delete track’ buttons.

Route analysis page: Next to the ‘Transfer track’, ‘Download track’ and ‘Share track’ buttons.

Land: New orthophoto map of the entire world now available

Do you need a map for your next adventure and don’t have one for the area? Download Land 8.7 right now and use the new worldwide orthophoto map. It’s free, so use it as often as you need!


Surely the first question that comes to mind is: “What is an orthophoto map?”

An orthophoto is a satellite photograph with information on the Earth’s surface. In other words, it’s an overhead photo that includes all the real elements that make up the ground layer of the earth (buildings, trees, roads…).



Follow these steps to view this new map for free:

IMPORTANT: Internet access is required to display the map.

1 – Centre the map window over the geographical area that you want the map to show.

2 – In the data tree, press ‘Online files > On-line maps > World’.

3 – Select the map in question: ‘Aerial_ESRI_ArcGIS.cwms’.

4 – The map will then be loaded. The loading process may take a few seconds.


Despite being an on-line map, you can also use it on your GPS even though it doesn’t have an internet connection. To do so, you must create a map section (portion of the on-line map that you will save on your computer). This way you can have a part of the map without having to be connected to the internet during your activity.


By the way, remember that the ‘On-line maps’ section of the Land data tree offers other free maps from around the world that you can use to plan your next outings.
