Map software programs can be different in a number of ways. This paper reports on the classification of interactivity produced as a result of surveying forty map applications. Specific examples from the survey are referenced as we describe different navigation styles, different levels of collaboration support, and various data options. Unique combinations within the classification are also discussed as we explore ideas for new interaction technqiues.
