Wikitude World Browser shows Summits near you

Dear great Sota Community!

I’m very pleased to anounce that all ~27700 summits - from all over the world - which are in the SOTA - Database are now viewable via Wikitude http://www.wikitude.org which is an Augmented Reality World Browser. Augmented Reality means - you can use your Handy in Cam Mode - look through it and see the summits overlayed on the display - there is also a Map and List View available.

So if you own an Android ,iPhone (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wikitude/id329731243?mt=8) or Symbian Handy just install the Wikitude World Browser App which is for free. After you started the program it shows you all available worlds around you - A World is a collection of Points of Interest near you.
So I programmed (undergoing some sleepless nights) the SOTA World - a Webservice which delivers the 50 nearest Summits to your current location - wherever you are. You’ll also see the distance to all summits.

The data is dynamically as new summits might be added – or information like “Last Activated” changes every day – so to keep up-to-date the data is rebuilded every night.

This is my contribution to the SOTA Community - hope you find it usefull and enjoy it!!!
Comments and feedback here or on my homepage if you like as I’m curious on your responses.
