Locomaps is a simple Qt Geo geo application that was created to demonstrate Qt's cross-platform capabilities at LinuxFest NW. Using a single set of source code, with zero platform specific code, this application was cross-compiled and run on: Mac OS X, Linux, Meego tablet, Windows XP, and Symbian. Qt also supports QNX and other operating systems but we didn't have the hardware to demonstrate it on. Digia is adding iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android support now. Qt is a powerful, native C++ framework that provides amazing cross-platform capability along with native performance. HTML 5 is not the answer.
The application demonstrates
* Satellite, Terrain, and Street Maps
* Tiled Map Service (TMS) Panning
* TMS Zooming
* Qt Geo GPS Integration
* QML based TMS Display
* QML based GPS display
* QML based zoomer
