Microsoft Publishes MapStalt App – Add or Modify Places on Open Street Maps

August 3, 2011 No Comments

Microsoft has published a pretty cool new app to the marketplace. It is called MapStalt and with the app you can essentially add new places to  a map if it is missing a business, details, etc. It is a pretty clever way to get users to do alot of the dirty work when it comes to alot of the naming of locations. The only weird part about it though, is that instead of using Bing it is using Open Street Maps. I am pretty curious as to why no Bing Maps love.

Download For Windows Phone

App Info:
MapStalt is an application that is meant to bring the map to completeness. In the case of the open street map, many details are missing, and MapStalt puts to power to complete the map into the hands of the mobile user.

With MapStalt, a user can add something as simple as a building address and latitude/longitude or complex details such as business hours of operation.  Whenever a user uses the map to find an address or a business and finds that something is missing, MapStalt is the answer. Points and addresses entered into the MapStalt app update the Open Street Maps database immediately.
