As consumers, we are inundated by maps as they increasingly becoming an intrinsic part of everyday life. From web based services for driving directions and portals such as Microsoft’s Live Local, Virtual Earth and Google Earth to consumer applications such as GPS watches and in-vehicle navigation, we are exposed to a wealth of location-based or geospatial information. This growing consumer awareness is beginning to stimulate commercial interest in the application of geospatial data for business use.
