Hello Mobile Enthusiast... Welcome again to another Location Technology news roundup as we continue to blast into February. Big Data. the buzz word is flying around all over the Internet, but have you ever asked yourself what the heck is big data exactly? Geospatial pros have worked with "big" data products forever it seems, however, all of a sudden data has apparently gotten very big! So, what is Big Data? Esri has tackled this question and has a special resource to provide an answer - See More. Do you like gadgets? I know I sure do and I recently added one to my collection - the JBL wireless charger/speaker from Nokia. This portable device is an ideal way to connect almost any audio device (smartphone, tablet, ghetto blaster or ??) either wirelessly over Bluetooth or by cable - check out my unboxing video HERE. Finally, Android is huge and the momentum seems to be growing stronger. Our friends at Avenza Systems, developers of the extremely popular PDF Maps and PDF Maps store for iOS have announced their Android solution - enter the public Beta of PDF Maps for Android - check out details and keep an eye on this one! Finally, if you still haven't seen details of this amazing live Twitter Tweetping map I really encourage you to do so, it really is quite awesome! Have an great week to everyone!
