State Of The Map 2011

The 5th Annual International OpenStreetMap Conference Denver, Colorado, September 9th – 11th, 2011


Welcoming Ulmon as SotM Sponsor

Like every year, Ulmon is happy to support the OSM community and will participate in this year’s awesome SotM event!

Most people will know their iOS apps City Maps 2Go, the most popular offline map app; and City Guides 2Go, destination guides for wonderful cities like Paris, New York, London, and Rome.

Ulmon has developed their own Ulmon Vector Maps map rendering engine, which delivers swift rendering, high detail on every zoom level, and very compact file sizes at the same time. Ulmon Vector Maps was launched this January at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco, and gets its 2.0 this summer, delivering another 50% file size reduction and threefold rendering performance.

Meet the guys at the conference to exchange ideas and experiences!

And for traveling to SotM, stop worrying about data connectivity and have a map of Denver in your pocket, OSM-style!

Since 2000, LOGIBALL has been developing customized navigation solutions and offers a broad range of services both nationally and internationally. This is what we call “engineering the world’s navigation maps”. LOGIBALL’s engineering know-how allows for individually customizing each and every digital navigation map according to the specific field of business or consumer interest.

LOGIBALL takes even one step further. With our own developed software: the Global Navigation Data (GND) SUITE, we provide our clients with the flexibility of having the perfect tool for processing navigation data. This way, our clients can manage, quality assure, convert, etc. their own volume of navigation data themselves, however they want, whenever they want.
