Time Presentation Title Presenter 8.30 – 9:00am Registration 9:00 – 9.05am Welcome & Overview Francisco Ortiz de Urbina
9:05 – 9:35am KEYNOTE Address: How the future of digital wallets will provide a revolutionary platform for the mobile application ecosystem
While the mobile phone platform has seen a convergence of voice, video, apps and location technology, missing to date have been safe, frictionless payment facilities.
In this keynote, Greg will lift the veil on some of the emerging e-wallet technologies that await us, and how this payment infrastructure will provide a platform for commercial revolution for mobile applications and create a paradise for innovators.
Greg Storey – Head of VISA’s V.me Asia-Pacific, Central Europe, Middle East and Africa 9:35 – 10:05am Web-based 3D visualisation for geospatial applications
Almost all mapping on the web is currently 2D and static. Despite what it looks like when you browse the web, the earth isn’t flat and time does move on! The surface of the earth has terrain, objects in the world have height and structure, and there are things under the ground and sea. One of the key reasons for mapping being largely 2D is that web browsers have not handled 3D graphics natively in a standard way. Of course, there have been specialised browser plug-ins such as Google Earth but previously no standard way to provide similar functionality in an extensible and plugin-independent way.

10:05 – 10:35am Panel: Location Data Sharing: Policy and Practice
Everyone wants free and open (location) data to be available to government and the public. In this panel discussion, we cover the opportunities arising from new policies, the barriers that still exist in government, while presenting the experiences from two practical case studies.Supported by Office of Spatial Policy – Dept Resources, Energy and Tourism

10:35 – 11:00am Coffee break & visit exhibition and map gallery 11:00 – 11:30am SoLoMo and how our sense of location is changing
In this session Rob will explore definitions of what “location” means and how emerging technologies, changing expectations and our new behaviours are realising new and increasingly richer location-influenced experiences. He will also discuss how this impacts privacy, with organisations not only knowing your location at a certain place and time, but also being able to track your specific location based interactions over time. Think of this as being like Google Analytics for the “real-world”. [Read more]

Mobile Apps & location provide a vast opportunity to improve business processes and the customer experience. Hamish will discuss how ingogo has successfully applied mobile App and location based technology to disrupt the taxi industry. ingogo connects passengers and drivers directly using mobile Apps, bypassing the traditional taxi network and payment providers and enabling direct communication. GPS location allows for a more efficient connection to nearby taxis, prevents payment fraud and improves the customer experience. [Read more]
Hamish Petrie – Founder & Managing Director, ingogo 2:00 – 2:30pm Mapping Twitter – Applications of geo-located tweets
There is a wealth of publicly available data now being created by Twitter, around half a billion tweets per day. It is possible to varying degrees of accuracy & certainty to ‘locate’ the majority of these tweets.This talk is going to be about some of the applications, and insights that are possible with this sort of data. This will be based upon the research done, and lessons learnt through the development of Trendsmap.com, as well as a number of other projects using geolocated tweets. It will also look at what else may be possible now, or with further growth & spread of Twitter, in the near future.
John Barratt – Software Engineer, Trendsmap 2:30 – 3:00pm Where is the rain?
Knowing where or when it will be raining can influence so many everyday decisions. Take a closer look at the map behind those popular radar images. From the location of the radar, understanding how the radar “sees” rain, and the spatial reference provided by the base map, locational accuracy and timing is critical to developing that killer mobile “rainfall-prediction” application. If you don’t know accurately where the rain has been, how do you expect to know where it will be in the next couple of hours? [Read more]

3.00 – 3.30pm Coffee break & visit exhibition and map gallery 3.30 – 4:00pm Geo-linked data: towards deep integration of location in the web of data
Now, two decades after the emergence of the world-wide web, location has the potential to redefine the digital foundation of our age through ‘Web 3.0’, the web of data. Built into its architecture from the beginning, ‘linked-data’ is reinventing the web of documents, spurred on by the global open government movement. It enables data and information to be shared, found, and integrated just as easily as hypertext is now. Tim Berners-Lee has defined a ‘five-stars’ linked-data maturity model, with top marks going to data published via W3C standards (RDF, SPARQL) and linked through common identifiers to other data. ‘Geographic place’ offers a powerful linking dimension – enabling diverse datasets (social, economic, environmental) to be integrated through their common geography.

Dr. Andrew Woolf – Bureau of Meteorology 4:00 – 4:30pm More than a map
Today, our location is largely thought of as a commodity. For the price of an entry-level smartphone, anybody around the world can easily determine their location on earth, find directions to the nearest pizza shop and even avoid traffic congestion by using a live web map.
But things haven’t always been this way. It’s easy to forget, but until Bill Clinton signed a policy directive in 1996 to open GPS to the public, it was a technology strictly used by the military. Since then, the rate of innovation has been staggering. During this talk, we’ll take listeners on a brief journey of maps, including: mashups, the convergence of cloud + big data + geo, cool geo startups and when a map becomes more than a map.
