PatchMap Dispatch Extension for MapBuddy

PatchMap Dispatch is our flagship extension for MapBuddy. Designed for the Canadian oilfield, this extension unlocks a series of super convienient tools that help you become more efficient in how you work between office and field.

Armed with PatchMap's trusted road, well and facility data, PatchMap Dispatch allows you to quickly create route maps for your drivers, calculate accurate hauling bids, and aide in the preparation of Emergency Response Plans. Because MapBuddy is installed locally on your Windows PC, you can interact with local resources and devices such as Garmin GPS and third-party file formats such as Shapefiles, GPX files, and Google Earth KML. MapBuddy waypoints, tracks and layers can all be saved to its own unique file format (*.bud) - Specially designed to be small and moveable between MapBuddy users.
