UrbanDive: The Ultimate Online Urban City Experience


Netvibes has partnered to bring the popular widget apps to PagesJaunes Groupe’s next-generation immersive map service, UrbanDive. Launching in early 2011, it offers people a way to virtually navigate their city in panoramic HD and enables users to engage with their geographic and social environment, interactively create and share favorite places, and access local services and real-time information about the city around them.

UrbanDive will allow users to interact with all their favorite Web apps directly at any point of interest: from social games to hotel reservation services, restaurant reviews, local weather and news, live chat applications, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and much more.

“Our vision for UrbanDive is to offer the ultimate immersive map experience, where people can explore their city inside and out like never before.” (Julien Billot, EVP, Internet Division, PagesJaunes Groupe)

UrbanDive will allow developers to easily build apps, using Netvibes UWA (Universal Widget API), a leading standard for open, universal widget development. And users will also be able to instantly find and share widgets from UrbanDive’s built-in directory, powered by Netvibes.

“UrbanDive represents the future of immersive maps.” (Freddy Mini, CEO, Netvibes)

    Urbandive is one of the best thing that I appreciate.

    I think it’s better than google map 360.
