Share location info

Mobile mashup Big map has been updated. Mashup implements a new way for sharing location info to mobile users. This web application offers a full screen map with some marker pointing to the current position. Initially marker will be placed automatically but you can of course drag it to the new position. And as soon as you click on it, you will be able to send a link to the map via email and SMS. No registration, no passwords etc. Just send (share) a map. And do it via the standard messaging. Also gmail.com users can Buzz own locations right from the map.

Also you can bookmark locations in your mobile browser. Just hit a link within the info window. And bookmark the opened page.

Link to mobile web application is:

http://mbigmap.linkstore.ru (it is mobile site).

QR code

You can copy this link right to your mobile from QR code on the left. Also you can use this short URL http://bit.ly/7zu3iY.

It works on iPhone, Android and S60 phones.

One possible use case - car parking info

P.S. and static maps for mobile users could be created with the following mashups: Mobile maps and QR map
