Mobile Earth mapping service touches down

A new mobile phone application called Mobile Earth has just launched in Germany with plans to rollout across the rest of Europe. Working much like Google Earth on your PC, this Java based application brings maps, aerial photography and journey planners to your handsets.

Vodafone customers in Germany just need to download the app via its Live! Portal and service will users to view address in Germany in full colour maps, high resolution aerial photos, calculate the best routes between addresses and view the results. You can also search and locate over a whopping four thousand points of interest.

The technology is provided by LocationNet Systems while the mapping data is served up by TeleAtlas. Maps will be delivered to the users handset from a central server. Mobile Choice has been assured Mobile Earth will reach Vodafone UK at some point.
