Retrieving data from iGIS

If you need to recover the data stored in iGIS you can retrieve it from your iPhone or iPad.

iGIS uses two sqlite databases; spatial-store.sqlite and Projects.sqlite. If you retrieve these files they can be used as a permanent backup or sent to Geometry for fault finding purposes.

Get these database files off your device using third party software like iFunBox

Using iFunBox, with your iPhone/iPad connected to your computer, open iTunes File Sharing:

Select iGIS (or iGIS HD) and select Open Sandbox


Select the .database directory and copy both the Projects.sqlite and spatial-store.sqlite to your PC
