Open Source Geospatial & Maps On Mobile Devices
by Steve Gifford, Consultant, Mousebird Consulting
 
Mobile devices, such as Android and iOS tablets and phones are everywhere. We use them for maps, of course, but they can also be used for interactive geodata display.
 
mousebird consulting makes the open source WhirlyGlobe-Maply toolkit which is used in a variety of apps, from the serious to the simply fun. We also make WhirlyViz, an app used for Javascript based interactive data visualization.
 
This talk will discuss the toolkits at a high level and what it takes to do geospatial data visualization on these devices. We'll have a number of interesting examples drawn from our own work as well as that of our users.
 
Additional speakers TBA.
