GeoGroups
What is a GeoGroup?
A GeoGroup is simply a common interest around which users can contribute and share map based data, or it can even serve as a private container of data for one single user. Such data may either be POIs or even real-time user locations. These map markers are known as GeoPosts.
What kind of groups are there?
Groups can be private or public, free or paid, professional or user-generated, identified or anonymous.
Groups marked private will not appear in public group listings. Groups marked anonymous will not show your username as the owner.
How do you add data to a group?
Data is added to a group by creating GeoPosts from the phone or the desktop. In GPSToday, tap the New-Post icon either on the main or map screen. At a minimum, enter title and submit. Optionally attach a picture, a geolog, as many custom tags as you want, and a detailed description or notes.
You can also choose to share your location in groups of your choice. Your location appears as a geopost in the specified groups.
Visit the geoterrestrial website from a desktop for the full interface.

You can create or join as many geogroups as you like. Every group is also accessible via identical permissions from the geoterrestrial website, with various other options.
Essentially a geogroup allows you to build your own geosocial network both on mobile devices and the web, with as much degree of privacy as you desire.
It is also an out-of-the-box solution for companies wanting to either collect geotagged data, pictures or routes on the field, track mobile field personnel, or allow field personnel to track and communicate with each other from the phone itself, schedule mobile personnel from a central location etc or all of the above, privately and securely. It is also a ready-made solution for local-level governments to manage various field tasks conducted by multiple departments.
Use it as a private or public repository of anything you want to be shown on a map, and access it from anywhere.
What do you mean by "paid group"?
Any group can be designated a paid group by its owner, by specifying a membership price in credits. Typically this would be done by users who have uploaded valueable data into the group from the website. When other users want to join this group to get access to this data on the desktop or GPSToday map, they must pay the group owner with the required credits. This transaction can be completed from the phone itself.
