By Graham Asher on 14 April 2011RouteMe is an iOS framework for rendering maps using tile bitmaps. We already have a working RouteMe data source using CartoType. It reads CartoType map files (in the CTM1 format) to generate tiles which are cached intelligently by RouteMe. In tandem with that we're working on generating a relatively compact tile set covering the whole world, which will be freely available to CartoType licensees. Depending on the detail of coverage and the data storage available it will be possible to display fast, responsive slippy maps using offline data; and obviously you'll be able to use any style you like, making use of CartoType's flexible style sheet system.
