The Skymap

HOW IT WORKS

The Skymap uses the uLocate's whereTM platform for access to GPS functionality, and an interactive Skymap program to produce the current sky. On the main page, users select a direction ("azimuth"), and a horizon view of the sky appears on the phone's screen. The celestial map can be rotated in 45-degree increments; the field of view itself is what an observer typically sees, about 45 degrees. A night vision option preserves the night-adjustment of the users' eyes.
