Individually, most of the data is of little value and interest. How will future applications access these vast quantities of data? How will they extract the essence of value and present this distilled information to the users of the application? This dynamic CW SIG event will feature industry speakers who will be debating these topics as well as providing an opportunity for audience participation during the panel discussion.
In this special SIG Event of the Location Based Services / Systems we will explore the purpose of location data, what value it lends to applications and emerging methods by which this information can be exploited, presented and visualised to users of the application. Of particular relevance is the current evolution of cities as a source of location information, represented through the concept of Smart Cities.
Although traditional geolocation has a role to play, the challenges of 3D positions indoors and within the context of the space and environment in which we live is far from trivial. It is ripe for innovation, but it is one that carries significant challenges to the way in which we collect and manage location data and how we process it to derive value.
