Victorian Mapping on Android

May 11, 2009 by Joseph Reeves

Juan Lucas has recently blogged that he's got his unofficial version gvSIG Mobile (practically) running on Android.

Juan Lucas has put a video on YouTube showing the Android version of the application displaying Ordnance Survey mapping of Glasgow, 1857:

The mapping is impressive enough in its own right and is provided by the National Library of Scotland; there's more details in the April 2009 edition of the Society of Cartographers' newsletter and you can view it all without an Android phone here.

I guess I'm going to have to get an Android powered phone, or two.
