GeorgeMap is an application for the Windows Mobile PDA/Pocket PC. Its main purpose (at the moment) is to fill in missing street names where the streets have already been traced.


  • Homepage : Google Code (Defunct)
  • License Type : Freeware (willing to GPL if any serious interest...)
  • Opensource : Yes, BSD
  • Target platform : Windows Mobile 5 and 6
  • Requirements : Mobile internet connection & Compact Framework 3.5 (and ideally GPS)
  • Dev. language : c#
  • Current status : developing. Last update 12 Feb 2008
  • Developer : GeorgeStyles


  • GPS Support (using WM GPS driver)
  • Display OSM tiles from MapNik, OSMARender, CycleMap or CloudMade
  • Query OSM for streets and nodes in the visible area
  • Displays unnamed streets in red, named ones in green (and ones named by you in lighter green so you can see the difference you are making)
  • Can query GPS points (although until I add node editing, that is kind of useless)
  • Program can check for newer versions and automatically install them (if you ask it to...)
  • Multi-threaded - tiles /data are downloaded in the background, as are uploads of changes.
  • Ability to name unnamed streets (or change the name of existing ones)
  • Offline edit model - edits are held in the phone until you choose to sync them. This is needed because mobile coverage is not 100%
  • Split / join ways (join dosent quite always work properly yet)
  • Current GPS trail overlaid on map so you can see where you have been (plan to upload trails to OSM in near future)

To do

  • Node editing / add / delete / add and remove from way
  • Upload GPX trails
