Serval Maps

The Serval Maps application is an Android based application that is designed to provide support for collaborative mapping activities using the resilient Ad Hoc mesh network provided by the main Serval Software.

The application was started as a result of an honours student project in 2011 at Flinders University and has since gone on to become a valuable contribution to the Serval ecosystem.

The source code for the application is available via a GitHub repository.

Development updates will be posted to this blog as time permits.

If you're interested in the project, please contact Corey Wallis who is the lead developer for the software, and is the honours student who started the original project in 2011.
