MATIENZO CAVES PROJECT
OruxMaps files

The following files (for the OruxMaps application) are for use on an Android smart phone or tablet with GPS. They allow informed hill roaming with all entrances, some heavily vegetated depressions and surveyed cave passage centre lines shown on the screen map. The app and data has been tested on various devices.

The latest map file has cave entrances marked. A kmz file of the entrances from Google Earth is also provided so that entrances can be seen over the orthophotos. The kmz file has the additional facility of linking to site descriptions. (See below.)
