French competitor to Google Maps



Sometime last week, the news story of a French competitor to Google Maps called Geoportail.fr caught my attention and I took a look at the page. It caught my eye because the initial article boasted 20 inch resolution in some areas (???) But, as of today, all I’ve been able to get is an error message along the lines that there is too much traffic and that I should try again later. It’s in French – it’s been a while…. anyway, I’m not the only one that’s noticed – The Register has noted the painful launch as well. Really, it should be interesting when it’s up.
