editor's review

Buying the PDAs and the smartphones is not sufficient you should be able to connect them to the proper network so that you get the best out of the features available with them. In order to enjoy these devices you would need a powerful and fast operating GIS engine that is available online. In this category you would find PrettyMap 5.5 as the most reliable. You have the best mapping software that is available for your Palm as well as the Windows Mobile platforms. You can view the vector or else the raster maps of various countries along with the images that have the clear depiction of the cities, rivers and then the buildings that are of interest for you as a tourist to that place.

Also you can view the roads, satellite photos along with the digital elevation in various models and topographies as is explained by the experts. You can have a better understanding of the geography with the reference data that is provided by this software. You can also visualize and analyze the spatial information and then download the reports related to the weather that are continuously provided by this software. You can have a wide understanding of the geography you are planning to visit or else planning to settle down the line of your retirement age.

PrettyMap is a powerful, reliable and fast GIS engine for PDAs and smartphones. The PrettyMap-powered brandable mapping software that is currently available for the Palm and Windows Mobile platforms lets you view vector and raster maps and images (such as country boundaries, cities, rivers, buildings, roads, satellite photos, digital elevation models and topographies), search in geographically-referenced data, visualize and analyze spatial information, download current weather reports and forecasts, display weather maps, extend your knowledge by taking an educational quiz, edit your own simple maps and much more.

Features include (see also screen shot):

* support for vector maps (points, lines, areas)
* support for raster maps (terrain elevation and bathymetry, images, symbolic)
* handles multi-attribute data associated with vector map objects
* displays maps of various planets
* supports GPS, logging GPS locations, "follow GPS" mode, WiFi wardriving and export to KML/GPX
* GPS fleet tracking service: PrettyMap can regularly report locations so that you know where your fleet is
* displays current weather maps, detailed weather reports and forecasts (requires Internet connection)
* all maps are free:

* adjustable water level for elevation data
* numerous settings to customize the program

* there are a few advanced services available upon request:
o PrettyMap bridges the gap between the GIS world and relational databases, allowing you to create relations between maps, and edit related records (e.g. locations, people, property or building types, business categories, etc.),
o it can synchronize user maps online with a dedicated PrettyMap server (useful in the field) so that many people can work together and update maps and data in real time,
o the PrettyMap server provides authorized access to mobile clients,
o maps can store information about who created and who last modified each record,
o this solution implements well-known standards (e.g. postgis) that allow you to use existing GIS software to manage and visualize data both online (maps on web pages) and offline, on mobile devices and desktop computers.
