VA Launches Mobile Gravesite Locator
Here's another great example of the federal government (slowly?) embracing new technologies: The Department of Veterans Affairs has launched a mobile gravesite locator that allows users to quickly locate a burial location if, presumably, they're in the middle of a national cemetery.
The mobile site address is: http://m.va.gov/gravelocator
The one downside: The mobile site generates only 10 search results and more advanced searches must be performed on the original VA gravesite locator, which launched in 2004. That's not ideal for people attempting to locate a grave on a mobile device.
Regardless, it's good to see another federal agency effective applying newer technologies to governing.
Know of any other good government mobile sites providing practical services and information to mobile users? Leave a link in the comments section below.
