AJAX Mapping for the iPhone and Blackberry

The growth of location-enabled applications in today's mashup world

Everything imaginable from local search to gaming, house hunting to networking with friends or travel buddies, and fleet tracking to city planning - all of these can be enhanced by the ability to show maps and location information and content. The “Where” has become a vital component of Web 2.0’s new frontier. In this session Lecole Cole explores how the “Where” began and what it can do to help create the next generation of Web 2.0, as well as the growth of location-enabled applications in today’s mashup world. Guest speakers from MapQuest, deCarta and TiraBitz also share their stories.
