Until recent times, map finding services were limited to computers, mobiles etc., but now the Map Finder application enables the users to view desired maps/directions on the APM of IPPhone.
|Most importantly, this application uses IPPhone instead of computer to print out the map of the desired location.
- A Map Finder application on the phone interacts with the server using XML. The server provides XML to the phone which the application renders into a screen for the user to interact with. The user’s interaction with the phone results in key-value pairs being passed back to the server for processing.
- The server in turn sends a query (HTTP Request) to web-based services and obtains HTML data (Http Response).
- The server then creates an XML page with the data obtained from web-based services and sends it back to the IP Phone.
- View Map
User can view map of any desired location by simply entering the location name or the post code.
- View Directions
User can view text based directions of route between two specified post codes i.e. post code of starting location and post code of destination.
- Zoom Map
User can specify the part of the image he wishes to zoom into and the image will then be enlarged to fit the APM screen.
- Print Map
User can print the desired map using the default printer connected to the main server of the application. Thus enabling the user of printing a friendly version of the map to take on the road.
