Eva Ho, our VP of Marketing and Business Operations, will be speaking on a panel tomorrow at DataWeek titled “Challenges of Building on Geo Data”. She will be joined by Ben Standefer (Urban Airship), Ankit Agarwal (Micello), and Peter Davie (TomTom). It will be from 12:00 pm to 12:40 pm in the SPUR Urban Center, 4th floor, Room 2. The session description is:
Why does there need to be dozens of sources of unique types of geo data? If so much geo data is free and public, why are we witnessing the emergence of technologies that do nothing but make it easier for us to find and integrate geo data? This panel will seek to understand why IP data, place data, venue data, or check-in data all have unique geo data challenges that require a diverse array of geo data providers.
