Increasingly there are three things that matter in the success of an application: location, location, location. Whether tracking the delivery of a package, the movement of a friend you are meeting, how to get to a place you want to see, the autonomous driving of a vehicle, or where to find our things – location is a critical contextual clue for making a valuable end-user experience.
This session will start with some location basics and then dive into trending technologies and best practices for using them in coding geospatial aware applications. A variety of open tools like GeoJSON and Tangram will be discussed.
