1This web app is mainly targeted at mobile devices and intended for people
2finding their way around as well as documenting travels.
4Maps are being displayed in default "Mapnik" OpenStreetMap style by default,
5but other styles like Cycle Map or Transport Map are available.
7The second feature is "tracking" of locations, meaning the ability to display
8your location and record a track of your movements for documentation.
9This track (most useful if you have a GPS receiver in or connected to your
10device) can be saved in GPX format. You can use those saved files with many
11applications to display them and show others where you have been or e.g. edit
12OpenStreetMap on the basis of that recorded information.
14Note that Lantea Maps does not send any location data to anyone else, it's
15recorded locally on your device only.
17The app name "Lantea" is based on a fictional mostly-ocean planet in the
18"Stargate: Atlantis" TV series, on which the Ancients placed the artificial
19"island" city of Atlantis.
