It is official now – we have been granted by Apple to enter iPhone Development Program for Universities. There are only two members so far, but anyone who would like to join for iPhone geospatial development is welcome (and save time dealing with byrocrazy / restrictions of Apple while maintaining licenses and legal purity of development). The team is located in Brno at Mendel University and virtually anywhere :). Are you interested in WMS for iPhone ? for supporting rich professional map displays on iPhone ? What if iPhne would serve as very good marketing channel (while users are using some map application ?) So far plans are very simple – enable iPhone to consume maps stored in MapShake. The crazy idea is to enable OLON consumtion directly in iPhone. (since MapShake now stores OLON definitions) . Consider your role in this team and project and join today ! Any support is welcome.
