Location Business Summit USA
Hello Mobile Enthusiast... Welcome again to another Location Technology news roundup and mobile industry recap. Sadly this week we have another harsh reminder of how violent, serious, and devastating tornado season can be - our hearts go out to all the folks of the Oklahoma City/Norman area affected by this tragedy - a personal reminder also to those of you in regions of the country prone to severe weather to make sure you have an emergency notification system activated on your mobile device(s) - there's plenty of fine choices available. As we move on to the tech updates, an interesting announcement comes from our friends in Missoula, Montana at GCS Research as Dr. Alex Philp (@BigDataAlex) and his team have announced a webinar series focused on Big Data! Billed as the "Geospatial Big Data" Webinar Series, the first webinar (scheduled for June 12) will feature Montana Site Selector, a cloud-based, web-enabled GIS application that GCS built for a consortium of economic development organizations. Also this week out of CTIA in Vegas we hear details of a sweet, rugged, Android mobile from Cat. The Cat B15 is designed to be the most progressive, durable and rugged device available on the market. Its robust design includes the ability to withstand a 5.9 foot drop and being submerged in up to 3.2 feet of water for 30 minutes - Nice!
Also of interest, last week in London Nokia officially introduced the Nokia Lumia 925 - enjoy this video put together from the official launch events.
