We've setup a demo server equipped with our Orbit Mobile Mapping Publishing extension. It contains a set of Mobile Mapping projects to showcase the publishing of mobile mapping content in our various clients, such as the Web Publishing Clients (e.g. online demonstrator page), the Mobile Publishing Clients (iPhone/iPad PanoViewer App) and integrated clients (using one of the SDK's).

There is only a limited amount of data of each project on this demonstrator.
The server hardware is a simple low-end linux machine.

This server is free to access and parties that provided the data allowed us to offer this free access to their data. Note that Orbit GT is not producer nor owner of the data. Orbit GT can in no way be responsible for the content shown and/or consequences from the use of it.
