USGS Maps the Spread of West Nile During 2005 Season

A clever python programmer in the UK has managed to develop a simple way of serving Google maps to his Symbian smartphone
The demo app reads the current latitude / longitude position from a Bluetooth GPS device and converts the coordinates into an x,y map tile reference for Google Maps. After connecting to Google Maps over GPRS or 3G and retrieving the tile, it displays it on the screen. View details HERE
The discussion also refers to another source with information about a Google Maps GPS application for the Nokia - See http://jgwebber.blogspot.com/2005/02/mapping-google.html
