Hi and sorry for the delay.
Right now it's not possible.
Polar projections are not supported yet, but it's planned.
Sorry about that
Best regards

Hi, and thanks for a great app.
I would like to add:
https://www.add.scar.org/
and
https://apc.antarctica.ac.uk
This does not appear to be possible right now?
Is there any possibility that polar projections might be supported soon? This year maybe in time for a trip early 2020.
Many thanks,
Robin

Hi there, any update on the possibility of polar maps? in particular this one https://antarctictreaty.maps.arcgis.com ... d08a05ea06 would be amazing to have offline access to! just with the place names and satellite view would make my life easier!

Hi,
I'll make my possible for a near future. Hopefully next version or following one, but can't be sure.

There's also a new free GIS map source released, is there any progress at all on polar projections?

thanks!

Hi,
As an update, I've made some work but it's not yet ready for official release. The polar projections have been added, but it remains a lot of work to properly support polar maps.
If you have the latest beta version from the Play Store (2.2.8 beta), you should be able to display some (most) polar maps but a lot of features are still not working fine, including placemarks, so it should only be used for beta testing. You can find a demo file in attachement if you want to test.
The next official version (2.2.8) will only officially support polar coordinate systems, but not polar maps yet. I'll try to fully support them in the following version, but nothing is sure.
