Translating between machine and human when talking about location

5/22/2019
More
Geocoding provides a way of translating between machine and human languages when we communicate location. Machines collect and process location data in terms of latitude and longitude but humans have a much richer vocabulary in terms of describing a location. So we need something that allows us to be able to translate between these two languages, this is where geocoding comes in.

Proof of location, bringing the blockchain to the real world

5/8/2019
More
If GPS can be spoofed, how can we prove that you are where you say you are? XYO is solving this problem by building a network that of devices that independently verify the locations of other devices participating in the network. By building this network on top of blockchain technology the network its self will be able execute smart contracts and provide a traceable confirmed timeline of an object's journey.

Geo-tagged audio - another way of augmenting reality

5/3/2019
More
We geo-tag images and text all the time so way not do the same with sound? Echoes is a platform that lets you attached audio to physical locations. These areas then act as geofences and trigger content when your listeners physically walk inside. In this way the listener controls the experience by physically moving through an area. In this interview with Josh from Echoes we also discuss 3D audio as a way of augmenting reality.

Powering location intelligence with geo social data - Spatial.ai

4/8/2019
More
An interview with Spatial.ai about the collection and use of geo social data and its role within location intelligence. Geosocial data is simply location-based social media data. It is media content (mostly text) produced by people on social platforms that is tied to specific locations. The location component is often coordinates in latitude and longitude, but it could be a tagged place or street address as well. This type of data is publicly available on nearly every major social platform...
