Metrobot's unique linear street maps a mobile mapping alternative

This is a cool map search utility, designed for mobile users. The Metrobot search engine is distinguished by its unique mapping concept which depicts businesses that occur on either side of individual road segments. The maps provide additional information including businesses listings and business web page links for each road segment. The roads in a Metrobot map are displayed in a straightened and aligned manner. Users can traverse the complete road network of an individual city by clicking on intersecting road links. Someone planning a trip to a specific location can easily see the businesses that are located nearby the destination. Definitely a cool concept and best of all its optimized for mobile devices too!
