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 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, doing away with the need for a separate database file of the entrances. (Although the entrances file is still supplied so that entrances can be seen over the orthophotos.) A kmz file of the entrances from Google Earth is provided. This has the additional facility of linking to a description. (See below.)
