REMINDER: Mobile mapping with Platial at Mobile Portland tonight
And the geogeeking hits just keep on coming. Fresh off a weekend of geolocation and mapping goodness with OpenStreetMap, Mobile Portland will be hosting Di-Ann Eisnor and Jason Wilson of Platial, one of the original companies on the social mapping scene, Portland-based or otherwise.
Di-Ann and Jason will be exploring how iPhone OS 3.0 and Map Kit will change the burgeoning social mapping scene given that the iPhone has just “drastically increas[ed] the number of services which can integrate location.”
This, in addition to recent releases of geodata APIs and location APIs bring the vision of mobile mapping to reality almost surely leading to augmented reality, truly social maps serving a global purpose, better filtered & analyzed content.
