View Full Version : Vodafone makes Wayfinder Open Source

July 16th, 2010, 02:02 PM
We are proud to announce the Vodafone Wayfinder Open Source Software project. The majority of all the location and navigation related software developed at Wayfinder Systems, a fully owned Vodafone subsidiary, is made available publicly under a BSD licence. This includes the distributed back-end server, tools to manage the server cluster and map conversion as well as client software for e.g. Android, iPhone and Symbian S60. Technical documentation is available in the wiki and discussions around the software are hosted in the forum.

Some pre compiled map data from various sources will be made available here shortly, including sample data for development by Tele Atlas.

For development purposes Vodafone Wayfinder host a small server cluster with free map data from the Open Street Map database.
