Pedestrian maps

Posted by Diego on March 18, 2009

United maps is trying to fill the gap in orientation services. This means that maps work OK when you’re driving a car, but… what happens when you walk to get it or when you leave it and need orientation via a mobile device?

Maps on a human scale are needed, not only for street but on a local and hyperlocal level. Not only showing streets but pathways and trails, public transport and bicycle options. Here in Germany bicycle is an accesible and frequently used mean of transport!

I share with you Stefan Knecht‘s presentation lectured at Telematics Munich 2008.
