BENDMAP: Bended Maps Mashup for GIS Navigation

Problem statement – market
  • More and more mobile devices are bing used for navigation and positioning in applications such as map routing. Due to the restricted available space (small screens) there is a need to increase the information and optimize the availabl screen space for navigation animation. Mobile companies are strongly interested in solutions to this problem.
Scientific challenges & contributions
  • New paradigm of rendering information in bended mashups
  • Space used for (usually empty) is intelligently used for providing new information
  • Reduction of cognitive load for users
  • Detail + overview simulaneously
Framework for project
  • Industrial project with mobile worldwide reference company, supported by Government
  • Excellent scientific and prototype results
