Nearme is semifinalist in Navteq Global Challenge

The nearme service that Greenius is developing with Oxford Softworks is a semifinalist in the 2008 Navteq Global LBS Challenge for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). The final round will take place during 3GSM in Barcelona between February 10th and 12th.

nearme provides a user with detailed information about points of interest near to their current location. The information includes reviews, ratings, contact information and maps. As well as your current location you can also search based on a town, postcode or tube station (in London). The first application of nearme is the Good Pub Guide mobile service. The version entered into the Navteq competition uses data from Fodor’s Barcelona city guide.

The official list of semi finalists is at Navteq Global LBS Challenge. For more information about nearme, see Oxford Softworks website or
