Feels like ages since I wrote my last blog post… The times were quite busy lately as I have FINALLY started to dedicate all my efforts into finishing my thesis. Basically, the thesis takes all the work I’ve done over the last four years, putting it into a more general perspective and deriving a set of (hopefully) universally applicable architecture recommendations.
The topic: the integration of geo-information into mobile applications, with a particular focus on the question how we can support ordinary, non-professional end-users in creating their own location based apps. My vision is that, essentially, creating a location based service should be just as easy as building a map mashup. LBS creation for the masses 😉 Things are progressing quite well right now, though it will still take me a few months to get everything onto paper.
