Summary:
123map delivers mapping services across multiple devices, including mobile phones that allow for optimal data compression without compromising the quality of the data. The intellectual property (IP) licensing agreement with Microsoft will enable 123map to use Microsoft's patented innovation to overlay information on a map image corresponding to a place of interest, enriching the geographical information on the maps. 123map will be accessing Microsoft's patented technology and developing its own innovations to allow the technology to be used in new and extended ways. 123map's products are developed with a diverse mix of proprietary and open source software, and this business agreement is a testament to the importance of mutual respect for IP, regardless of development models.
