Maps and Mobile are natural bedfellows and have been part of the mobile landscape for quite a while whether that's using GPS or mobile technology to determine location co-ordinates. LBS has been touted as the next big thing for at least 10 years so is it already here? Are there realy opportunities? And what do real people use this stuff for?

Kindly hosted by UCL as part of their Making Money in Mobile Apps Bootcamp, we'll be exploring the state of mobile geospatial. Does the arrival of GPS equipped tablets mean that the days of the dedicated SatNav/GPS are over? What's the relationship between Location Based Services, Augmented Reality and Maps? We'll be exploring all this, most likely we'll touch on open data and a whole lot more ...

Chaired by the legendary Andrew J Scott of Magical Jaguar, formerly of Rummble and so much more ...

Andrew will be joined by:

Professor Anthony Steed - Head of the Virtual Environments and Computer Graphics Group at UCL

John Abbott - Senior Product Manager for Web Services at the Ordnance Survey in Southampton. John is responsible for all of Ordnance Survey's online web services, including OS OpenSpace and OnDemand

Anwar Ahmed - Partner Relations Manager at Navteq
