Ansel Adams dedicates the beginning of his first book "Taos Pueblo" to visualization. He introduced the idea of "previsualization", which involved the photographer imagining what he wanted his final print to look like before he even took the shot. Of course there are many great photos which were taken impromptu. However, for landscape photographers, being able to previsualize the scene before going there will greatly reduce the chance of being caught unprepared and will greatly increase the chance of getting better shots.

Photographers use various tools to help them pre-visualizing the scene. Nowadays, many of those tools are phone apps. PlanIt! is all-in-one solution that is designed to leverage the map and simulated viewfinder technologies (VR, AR etc.) to provide the necessary tools for photographers to pre-visualize the scene in combination with the Sun, Moon, Stars and Milky Way. Some questions that you might ask yourself before going out for a photographing trip are:

* Where is the Sun or the Moon at the time and the location and to see the animation of the Sun/Moon/Stars/Milky Way movements as in real?

* When and which azimuth is the Sunset or Sunrise today or on any date at any location around the world?

* Where should I go to get a nice view of the scene and possible compositions?

* Do I get a clear view of subject from a certain location where is no mountain blocking the view?

* What lens should I bring in order to capture the whole width or the height of the scene?

* If the scene is too wide, how many shots do I need to take to create a panorama and how many angle should each shot cover and how many angle should I rotate the camera between each shot?

* How do I compose the scene considering the subject’s elevation and the sun or moon location?

* Is tonight a good time for star trail photography? How long can I exposure without being affected the rising moon?

* What are the dates and times to have Milky Way at certain position on the sky?

If you are interested in the answers of any questions above, the PlanIt! is the right app for you. In a simple app, we included Tools feature for you which allow you to find out GPS coordinates, elevation, distance, elevation gain, direct view, focal length, depth of field (DoF), hyperfocal distance and panorama, and all of those are represented to you visually on the map and sometimes in a simulated viewfinder. In addition, the Ephemeris features include the sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset time and location, twilights, special hours of the day, position of the Sun and the Moon, Sun/Moon Finder, more than 100 stars (such as Polaris) azimuth and elevation angle, star trail planning and exposure time calculation, time-lapse and hyperlapse calculation, milky way searching, exposure/ND calculator, light meter, bub timer etc. Again, all of them are either represented on the map or in the viewfinder. You can even use existing pictures in the viewfinder to explore with new photographing ideas.

Very comprehensive app, it took me awhile to just figure out all the features in it! Looking forward to use it in my upcoming trips! However, lacking the offline caching feature is a pretty major bummer, as great landscape views & realiable cellphone signal usually don't come together very often... one suggestion to get around the inability to cache from google map is to support kmz format custom maps. I'm an avid hiker and have numerous scanned custom maps. It can be made easily either with google earth or specialty software such as the excellent OkMap(free). There won't be elevation data in the custom map but definitely a lot better than a blank page...

Incredibly useful for planning and visualizing Milky Way shots! The included instructions are very useful and easy to follow.

Amazing! I'm a landscape photographer, and have always struggled with knowing where to shoot from to catch the best view of a celestial moment...This solves it all. It's packed with features that no other app provides. **Update ** This last week, I was in a position to get a shot of the Milky Way. The app said it would be 'here' at this time...wasn't even close. Luckily I could see the faint signature of the Milky Way behind me, and still got the shot.
