I am, however, keen to help disseminate it as far and as wide as possible, not least because I am particularly excited about the potentials of such work; more than anything, these screen shots show the potential of the FreeRunner to Archaeology and related disciplines.


TangoGPS now displays more background imagery in addition to the data it displays by default; free aerial photographs from and relief data from Looks great:

GvSIG Mobile

GvSIG Mobile will now display shape files and OpenStreetMap data on the FreeRunner:

Check out the project pages for both; development is rapid and exciting.


Any place with a video demonstration?

The only video I have is an early look at GvSIG mobile:

It's running on a Windows machine, but being java based we're expecting that it should work the same on the Openmoko platform. If there's something you'd like to see, please visit the relevant project's website and post a comment asking; I'm sure there's plenty of others who would like to see these things working :)
