Mapping systems software query/advice

  csqwared 20:23 20 May 2008

I'm trying to locate a mapping system similar to Autoroute but with better street level detail, similar to Google maps but not quite as detailed. I need to be able to zoom in and out, add "flags" and text and locate using longitude and latitude. I then need to be able to save any annotated maps in a file sysytem. I've had no luck with Google, can anyone point me in the right direction please? (pun intended)

P.S. This is primarily for use in the Yorkshire area.

Thanks for the link. I've had look and whilst the details level is spot on and I'm able to add stuff, I would really like a full screen presentation without the sidebar and huge Google logo etc. I'ld also like to be able to save the maps to a file which doesn't seem possible with Google. If you've any other ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

Have you had a look at MS Live Earth click here.

I recently discovered, to my surprise that its mapping is more up to date than Google although its aerial view is not so good. I am not sure that you can add flags, etc.

Streetmap allows you to search by lat/long but the result is probably not what you want.

Multimap click here uses the Live Earth mapping.

Thanks for that. I haven't explored that option. I was wanting the info for a work related project and have discovered today we have an in-house application that does exactly what I need.

Thanks to you both for your efforts. :-))
