GeoVector – Click on the Real World
GeoVector has been issued a patent for one of their innovative location based services. Their software allows you to point your cellphone at a location and then retrieve information about that location. The device uses GPS to determine your location and a digital compass in the device to determine what direction you are “pointing”.
The service has already been deployed in Japan through a service called Mapion Local Search which we have talked about before.
“When GeoVector and its partners launched the world’s first pointing-based local search service, we revolutionized the way people use a wireless phone to interact with the world around them,” said Peter Ellenby, GeoVector’s Director of New Media.
The company says they are currently in talks with carriers in the US and around the world to further deploy their solutions.
