gvSIG Mobile is a JME-CDC GIS application that runs on Pocket PCs
and Smartphones. The official version runs so far only on Windows
In summer 2008, Joseph Reeves from Oxford Archaeology showed great interest in using gvSIG Mobile on Openmoko, a Linux-based operating system used on a new phone called FreeRunner.
So I started to create an unofficial version with a new GUI (simpler
and more finger-oriented), based on the not-so-mature Java resources
available on Openmoko. This software is now available in an initial
beta version so that we can receive some feed-back from users.
gvSig Mobile is pushing itself as "mobile GIS", although clearly any true GIS analytical tools are going to be limited on a mobile platform.
