Citizen Science often happens out in the field where network coverage can be weaker. That's why it can be especially helpful and pratical to pre-download map sections and save them locally on a smartphone for excursions and hiking trips.

The new offline maps in all SPOTTERON apps offer exactly that. In a separate panel you can define the map section, name it and save it. On top you can also download spots to be able to carry out spot updates without internet connection.
