First of all – apologies for this blog going quiet for so long. Due to resource issues its been hard to keep up with documenting our activities. All the same we have been quietly busy continuing work on geo mobile activity and I’m please to announce that we have now releases our Fieldtrip GB app in the Google Play Store
We expect the iOS version to go through the Apple App Store in a few weeks.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting to blog with details of how we implemented this app and why we choose certain technologies and solutions.
Hopefully this will prove a useful resource to the community out there trying to do similar things.
A brief summary. The app uses PhoneGap and OpenLayers so is largely using HTML5 web technologies but wrapped up in a native framework. The unique mapping uses OS Open data including Strategi , Vector Map District and Land-Form PANORAMA mashed together with path and cycleway data from OpenStreetMap and Natural England.
