Hi,

i am developing a tracking system for mobile "Symbian" using j2me and i want a library "free library" to deal with maps where i can scroll the map, chose position and get longitude and latitude to my application.

static Google map is limited to 1000 request and no scrollable features for it.

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Ahmed.

Actually, I believe that Google Maps will allow more than 1000 requests, but you have to pay for it. Once you get that much traffic, it is to be hoped that you're making some sort of income off your work.

If you have your own map data and don't mind running your own mapping services, there are a couple of open-source solutions. The University of Minnesota developed a very powerful mapserver that can run under the Apache web server. It's at mapserver.org.

For scrollable mapping, like Google maps, you can augment the core mapserver with a scrollable mapping product such as "ka-maps!".

Actual map data is up to your. Google gets their info from a lot of sources, including NASA. Many of those sources are available at little or no cost to anyone. For example, a project I once worked on used terrain photography taken by my State. We were able to obtain copies of the entire state data for $50 or less.

Thanks for the great replay

my question about Google maps, is there a library for mobile
to detect user interaction with mobile and get the location based on that

something like this but with no money >> http://www.nutiteq.com/

i.e:
i send to map give me x,y .... when user scroll the map left or right
it is bring the new location for him either he scrolled by touch screen or mobile keyboard
