It would have to be pieces (400x240 pixels each, at the largest, although web-based maps are already made that way, so not really an issue). With the thousands of images required to span the globe, it would be a LARGE app. Perhaps we could just include the images for our current area, except that the users of this forum are from everywhere: US, Europe, etc...
In other words, it would be only moderately difficult to program, but getting footage for the maps is another matter.
Wow, I never really believed it would be possible. Thanks.
Perhaps whoever makes it should make it with street maps (no aerial/satellite). That would be seriously easier (but still hard).
