Plan, Scout, and Hunt in 3D

Understanding the lay of the land is a critical factor in determining the success of your hunt, and onX Hunt’s 3D Maps allow you to do exactly that. Combined with features like our Hybrid Basemap, viewing 3D Maps on iOS devices and Web Map gives you the tools you need to understand how animals move across the landscape—and where you need to be to cross their paths.

New 3D Mapping Capabilities Available on onX Desktop

onX is excited to launch the most comprehensive 3D scouting platform ever designed for hunters to use on their computers. Be sure to explore all of these new features for your next scouting session, and use 3D Mode to make the most of your upcoming hunting seasons. Just a few of our 3D updates include:

1
View Private and Public Boundaries in 3D
With 3D desktop maps, you can now view all of your public and private layers in 3D, letting you easily see a 3D view of property boundaries. The ability to see how property boundaries are laid out on the landscape in 3D—in conjunction with potential travel patterns for animals— gives you a significant advantage on filling your next tag. 
2
View Map Layers in 3D
In addition to our public and private layers, you’ll also be able to view all of our other map layers in 3D as well. Easily customize your 3D map experience by turning on any combination of map layers that you need for your scouting purposes. Viewing the Roadless Areas Layer in 3D will give you knowledge of how those areas furthest away from roads both relate to the landscape and how to access them more readily. Using the Historic Wildfire Layer to find food sources in 3D will also give you insight into how these fires burned on the landscape and how to approach burned areas. Other popular layers worth exploring in 3D are the Timber Cuts, Wilderness Boundaries, Walk-InAccess Areas, and Hunting Units.
3
Set Waypoints in 3D
Did you find that perfect glassing knob or campsite while in 3D Mode? Now you can easily make a Waypoint for that spot without having to toggle back and forth between 2D and 3D. All the onX Markup types are now available to be created and viewed while using the 3D map. You can make custom Waypoints for exact locations using our icon library and custom colors, then use the Line Tool to draw the easiest routes that you have scouted while in 3D.
4
Measure Distances in 3D Maps
You can now attach a radius to a Waypoint and view it in 3D mode. Use the Radius Tool to map out how far you want to hike from your truck or backcountry campsite, or mark a bedding animal and add a radius around its location so you can quickly see when you’re in the “red zone” on a stalk. You can also determine distances from trailheads and other busy locations to stay away from pressured areas, to ensure you’re a certain distance away from structure or a water source, or to make a shooting radius from a glassing knob to see which hillsides are within shooting range from your current location. The tracks that you’ve created from your mobile device while on hunts can also be viewed to help you relive past hunts and inform you on planning your next trip. 

How to Use onX Hunt 3D Maps on iOS

To enable 3D Maps on your iOS device, simply tap the “3D” button in the lower, right-hand side of your screen. To tilt the map to display your area in 3D, use two fingers to swipe up. When viewing your maps in 3D mode, zooming, panning, and rotating function the same as when you’re viewing your regular Basemaps.

Tip: The more you zoom in, the less your map will tilt to display 3D. Zoom out to display a more dramatic view of your 3D Map.

How to Use onX Hunt 3d Maps on Desktop Web Map
