The Worldwide Transportation Library (WWTL, today announces the public availability of a mobile delivery service designed for smartphones. Known as 'WWTL-Mobile' ( ), the new service allows smartphone users to access the WWTL's complete library of international photographs through their 3G Internet connections. With a collection of photographs from five continents and numerous countries, WWTL-Mobile takes viatological studies to the next level by integrating GPS coordinates, feedback forms, and interregional distance charts into one page and distributing these data to Palm, Blackberry, and Google Android-based phones.    

As social trends demand that data can be shared by anyone at anytime, WWTL-Mobile integrates with social bookmarking tools like Facebook, MySpace, and Delicious so users can distribute photographs to their friends. By scrolling down to the bottom of a roadside photograph and clicking on a preferred social networking service, users may share untraveled roads with their friends in just a few seconds.

"The Internet as we know it is not the same Internet that existed ten years ago", states Carl Rogers, owner of the Worldwide Transportation Library. "Not everybody has time to sit in front of a monitor and hop onto the Internet. What 'WWTL-Mobile' does is leverage smartphone technologies to deliver a library of 2,326 road photographs. Whether you speak English, French, Italiian, German or Spanish, the WWTL-Mobile supports your smartphone and most importantly keeps road photographs sharable with your friends and family."

With five continents worth of railroad and highway captures, the WWTL caters to tourists who map their own travels. It also serves as a web-resource for viatologists (i.e., those who scientifically study roads). The WWTL touts a large library of photographs, videos, and 360-degree panoramic views from the world. As a global supplier of media, the WWTL also offers translations in French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
