gvSIG Mobile 0.1.3 released; ESRI and Microsoft join the mapfest

Apr 19, 2009 by Joseph Reeves

Juan Lucas sent me a link to the latest gvSIG Mobile for Openmoko / Maemo. I've packaged up the Openmoko version and uploaded it here and to

Juan Lucas provides some screens of two new features here; support for Microsoft's Live maps and data provided by ESRI's ArcIMS protocol. Is there any other mobile GIS application that provides support for as many different data sources?

There's also some slight GUI changes and extra languages:

Norwegian; provided by Herdis Hølleland
French; provided by Michaël Douchin
Russian & Hewbrew; provided by Evgeny

That brings us to a total of 9 languages. Big thanks to everyone who has kindly supplied a translation for us; if anyone else wants to help please download this short file, translate it into your language of choice and send it to Juan Lucas or myself.

I'm flying to Cairo on Thursday morning for a very ill prepared holiday, Juan Lucas was kind enough to ensure that gvSIG Mobile would fit my needs ;-)

This goes to show how easy it is to edit these fields to suit your requirements. If you're collecting OpenStreetMap data, for example, you could easily create a database on your phone that met your recording needs. I'll type up a guide about that later, probably after 0.1.4 is released as that may feature extra functionality in this area.

Download, enjoy, be happy!


Hi Joseph,

Great idea to locate Cleo's tomb in Cairo : it can be real... ;)
