Nokia Updates Ovi maps and Adds API for Integration
Tuesday, May 26, 2009
Nokia has announced the latest version of Ovi Maps, which offers high resolution satellite and terrain maps (both in 2D and 3D views), 3D landmarks for over 200 cities, rotation, night view, and fly-overs and fly-throughs.
Ovi Maps offers enriched POI information by Lonely Planet, Michelin and Wcities to complement the already available navigation services. (Point Of Interest is a point on the earth representing, for example, the location of the Space Needle which is a famous tower in Seattle). It also offers a weather service that provides 24 hour and 5-day forecasts.
With Ovi Maps on the web you can also search for addresses and POIs, find places and save them into Favorites, and organize them into Collections. Your places, collections and routes can also be synchronized over-the-air between Ovi Maps on your compatible mobile device and Ovi Maps on the web.
