TAK CORE includes functionality that is common to all TAK applications and focuses on capabilities that can live in a cross-platform layer (simplifying the development and management of the library).

TAK CORE Features:

Networking – All ATAK applications use a variety of network mediums to send situational awareness data, chat messages, and other file types associated with mission planning activities. The networking component of TAK CORE handles creating the appropriate message at the application level (Cursor-on-Target), manages receiving and dispatching messages, and brokers communication with the TAK Server product.

Geospatial Data Processing – The TAK applications ingest geospatial imagery and overlay products for use on the moving map display.

Geospatial Data Visualization – A set of rendering utility and helper functions exist in TAK CORE to standardize the way geospatial imagery and overlays are rendered to the screen.

Geospatial Data Management – A data management capability is included in the TAK CORE to ensure that the data managed by TAK is relevant and accurate for the end user.

What others say about the ATAK-CIV (Android Team Awareness Kit app

As an information security professional who specializes in physical security and covert entry, this tool is invaluable to my work. The Geo Spatial Awareness functionality mixed with Situational Awareness functionality is amazing when out in the field. There is a steep learnung curve when it comes to this, but that's a given. It does a task and it does it well. ATAK was born with a bit of scope-creep(needing ALL the features), but it still excels in this area. I would recommend this to others.
I'll start out by saying that ATAK isn't for everyone and most people probably don't need the capabilities it has to offer. Like others have already stated I believe the people that give ATAK low ratings don't understand the app and it's purpose. It's not meant to be a simple map like Google Maps but rather a system that enhances your teams situational awareness and allows you to customize it according to your needs by installing specific plug ins, imagery, data packages, and so on.
Best goddamn app for land nav, team coordination and so many things. Useful for teams working in the field (logging, costruction, teams cattle ranch workers), Law enforcement, EMS & Fire or for playing airsoft if that's what you fancy As for people who say that you need a linux based OS to host a server, not really. I host my own from my laptop (windows 10) through free TAK server. You do need to download a map package, but you can do so from the subreddit dedicated to ATAK.
People giving it low ratings haven't taken the time to learn to use it and don't understand the tool in front of them. Absolutely unparalleled for hiking and boating. Totally free and ad-free. Incredible selection of maps if you go and find them. All the functions you could want and more. The app wants tons of permissions because it has tons of capabilities that need all those permissions to work. It's not spyware. You can go read the source code for yourself.
Android Freeware helps you download APK files in Android Package format, safe and secure.
