Nokia Announces Multi-Platform Navigation Maps

Karachi Airpot: Here MAPs

Nokia today announced its Map application, called HERE. Thanks to acquisition of NAVTEQ and other mapping industry players, Nokia is able to bring this Navigational mapping application for Windows that will run on iOS, Firefox and Android too.

Nokia’s HERE maps are straight away available for windows phones, while iOS users will be given access to HERE pretty soon. Nokia also announced the Android API for HERE, through which developers will be able to develop android apps using HERE maps.

HERE maps offer navigation, directions, 3D maps and more. It will allow community input for mapping, just like Google Map Maker.

HERE Maps will be community driven but Nokia says it’s efforts are to bring the most accurate data for mapping in the world, as it will send out teams to exact locations to cross-verify the community inputs.

Map Creator, or editing facility of maps, isn’t available at all locations, including Pakistan, yet, but Nokia says that it will allow wider number of audience to edit and verify maps.

    Pakistan is not in Nokia’s high priority. Even Pakistan maps are broken, whole Kashmir is part of India. I have been reporting this to Nokia for 3 years at least. But Nokia has not corrected the map yet.

    How did this happen?

    When Nokia launched Nokia maps, the Kashmir was part of Pakistan. In India, there were some riots and people broke glass windows of Nokia office. Since then Nokia moved whole Kashmir (including Azad Kashmir) as part of India.

    In Pakistan, people are sleeping and looting each other, they don’t care even if there’s home boundary is changed!!!!

    Shame on you Pakistanis!!!
