WhateverMap

WhatEverMap is an application for iPhone device. It's development is in progress at the Department of Geoinformation Technologies of Faculty of Forestery and Wood Technology, Mendel University of Agriculture and Forestery in Brno. This application offers new functionality for iPhone users. There is no similar application in iPhone OS 3.0 even AppStore do not offer such functionality. The application consumes OGC layers and shows them to the users. The users doesn't need to be limited by pre-prepared sources; they can receive it promptly throught the internet. It allows to use any domain-specific map sources anywhere in a field. In the future this application should collaborate with comunite map portal MapShake.cz. It should provide knowledge of available geospatial sources.
