  1. With Geodata, Developers, not Consumers Rule

    If consumers think of geodata as a commodity, what does that say for its future? What are the key data relationships? And what, if anything, will differentiate one offering from another? Our editors ponder these questions in light of evidence that consumers know and care little about who makes, manages and updates basemaps.

  2. Riding the Geolocation Wave—Tatham Oddie (Mix 11)

    http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/MIX/MIX11/EXT04 It’s pretty obvious by now that geolocation is a heavy player in the next wave of applications and APIs. Now is the time to learn how to take advantage of this information and add context to your own applications. In this session we’ll look at geolocation at every layer of the stack – from open protocols to operating system APIs, from the browser to Windows Phone 7. Building a compelling geo-enabled experience takes more than simple coordinates. In this session we will introduce the basics of determining a user’s location and then delve into how to make geo data a useful addition to your application instead of a bolt-on “me too”.

    Pick your metaphor: Smartphones are "remote controls" for the physical world, or perhaps, as Steve Cheney argues, they’re "cursors for the physical world".

    Either way, it’s clear that the age of mobile is here, GPS is not enough, and with sensors all around us — both outdoors and in indoor locations — it’s finally time for truly context-aware computing. But what will that take, both content- and design-wise — is it all just about eliminating friction? And how are players like Apple and Google positioning themselves for this micro-mapped world? a16z’s Benedict Evans and Estimote’s Steve Cheney talk about these questions and more in this episode of the a16z Podcast…

  4. Interoperable Locations: Matching Your Places with My Places

    Developers and applications have challenges matching the same location between data sources and sharing a location between applications. Why? In this panel, we’ll look at the pros, cons, and challenges of using proprietary, open source, and/or community-built data sets; why there won’t be one location database to rule them all; ways we can all work together to make sure your place is my place when our applications talk to each other; and why all of this is important.

  5. On-Point: America’s Post-Crash Geography

    Big economic events — like the one we’re in now — change the map of America. They make winners and losers. They change where we live and work and what we do.

    Acclaimed urban theorist Richard Florida says that on the other side of this economic bust, America’s economic geography will be different. Some cities, towns, regions will roar back to new prosperity. Others, he says, may find a reshaped economy passing them by. Some may be history.
