Introducing Tiled Maps

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

I’m proud to announce Tiled Maps has been accepted into the iTunes app store and now available for purchase. TiledMaps iconTiled Maps lets you take your maps with you where ever you go. The maps are stored on your iOS device so you’ll have access to them when you’re offline, which is great if you’re keen on taking long walks beyond cellphone coverage like I am. Tiled Maps is based on the TMS specification just like Google Maps and OpenLayers. Further information on how to prepare maps and load them into the app is available on the guide page.

Tiled Maps takes full advantage of what ever device it is on, meaning a specialized interface for iPhones and iPads, not just a stretched screen like some older map apps. The map can follow your location and even rotate the maps to match the way the device is facing if you prefer to be “in the map”.
