Maps for mobiles

I started my mobile GIS of Iceland in 2001. This GIS was totally made by open source programs and it was hosted on one of my servers at the University of Iceland, set up with the help of On the photos bellow you can see my then water, shock and dust proof mobile Siemens ME45 running this interactive GIS of Iceland. You clearly can see the map on a mono display, map features, map scale, ESSO petrol stations, reference map. Some of the layer are query-able. The waterfall in the background is Dettifoss, located in Jökulsárgljúfur National Park of Northeast Iceland. The river is Jökulsá á Fjöllum and it plays significant part of my Ph.D. research and my life but this is another story. The photos were taken on 20.06.2004, then I didn't know that exactly 4 years later on the same day I will defend my Ph.D. thesis in Geography at the University of Iceland.
