April 20, 2009 Nicole Scholtz lead a discussion about Location aware services

Discussion Description:

Location, Location, Location!

Because of technology, location matters to us both less and more every day. Computing power and new technologies let us leverage where we are in the world more than ever before, while also accessing information in a location agnostic way.

From pictures with geotags to news headlines on a map, to library and restaurant locators and demographic maps at the click of a mouse, geographic information is everywhere. Nicole Scholtz from Spatial and Numeric Data will show some favorite examples of things on the web that use location, and lead a discussion of how the library might think about location in terms of its services.
