Geography Alumnus Develops Award-Winning iPhone Mapping Application

IUP Geography and Regional Planning alumnus Daniel Veit recently codeveloped an iPhone application called AccuTerra, which won Apple’s award for the Best iPhone OS 3.0 Beta App at the annual Apple Design Awards session.

The AccuTerra HD product allows iPhone users to view on-line or off-line topographical (elevation) data in a totally integrated fashion with Global Positioning System (GPS) and compass capabilities. According to MacWorld, “Intermap Technologies’ AccuTerra uses forthcoming iPhone 3.0 technologies like in-app purchase to allow users to buy more detailed maps of various geographical areas of interest. The program allows users to plan, track, and share hiking and biking trips. Users can activate the iPhone’s GPS feature to track not only their exact route, but also later “play it back,” including showing geocoded photos at the places in the trip where they were taken.”

Dan Viet is an applications developer for Intermap Technologies, Inc. of Denver, Colorado. Congratulations, Dan!
