Easily Find the NetProphet Conference

 I am not sure how many people coming to The NetProphet 2012 Conference tomorrow are doing so for the first time or are unfamiliar with Mutualpark but I created a !Waytag last year which a number of people found helpful to locate and navigate easily…Continue

GIS + GPS + GSM = LBS (Extract from Eric Gakstatter Article 15 Sept 2009)

This is an extract from a fascinating article by Erik Gakstatter (an authority on GPS and LBS)   Why the focus on Nokia? If you recall, in 2007 Nokia acquired Navteq for US$8.1B. Navteq is one of two street-level map database companies (the other…Continue

I have spent a lot of time developing a mobile app (hybrid) for the retail space. The current app has some amazing turn-by-turn direction capabilities but no location awareness. I am currently experimenting with technologies for adding location awareness. Obviously with location awareness comes push notifications and the like. Believe me a LOT of groundwork has already been done so we will not be building from scratch. Looking for any developers who would have a passion for working with me to take this project to completion. I am a hobbyist coder working in my spare time. I will not be able to pay you so you would be working for the fun of it. However if this gets to the market and earns any money you will be entitled to a share (as we might agree upfront). I am coding in HTML5/JavaScript through Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 as well as Apache Cordova. Ultimately I would like to make this a business. In fact if I can make a good presentation to a large mall house by 25 September and they like it there may be the opportunity to work with them and develop a business around the idea. If you have experience with Google Maps that would be a useful skill for the next phase of the project. Only serious coders should apply as there is no  guarantee of success. We would work in our spare time as and when we can as mutual partners in this venture. I live in Centurion so if you are in the area or close that would be an advantage. Maybe we can meet and I can show you what I have and if your interested we can take it from there.

The economically ruinous and much overrated volcanic ash cloud dissipated and the "thewherebusiness Location Summit" in Amsterdam is on schedule and taking place with a full compliment of delegates and speakers in attendance. (28-29 April)

Warren Venter our CEO arrived on the 27th April to represent Waytag at our first international conference. The conference is being focused on “Powerful profit strategies to monetise location based services and data” and is sold as Europe's largest LBS conference.


Most of the major European and Global leaders in LBS are attending such as Google, Nokia, Vodafone, TomTom, Mapit, Teleatlas, BBC, T-Mobile, Microsft Advertising, Yahoo, and more than 50 Speakers so we look forward to 2 days of valuable networking and getting up to date with current information and strategies for the very busy LBS market.

Warren is also likely to hook up with 2 local South African companies attending : Mapit, a SA subsidiary of Tele Atlas and Hummba an associate of our very own Silicon Cape.

I look forward to catching up with Warren after the conference and will hopefully have some info that will be of interest to everyone at Silicon Cape interested in the Location market.

Hi to Michael Struwig and Sophia Karalis. Thanks for joining the "Location (cubed) group. We look forward to lots of stimulating and informed discussions, questions and suggestions in this group. "Location" has a huge buzz which is still gathering momentum all over the world so it would be useful for those of us who have an interest in this space to keep the Silicon Cape Forum up to speed with whats happening locally and internationally. I look forward to your contribution. Cheers. Peter McFall

Mark Allewell & his associates from hummba.com on their recently announced multimillion rand media deal. Well done ! We need to see a lot more of these kind of deals coming out of SA and Silicon cape in particular. We wish you all well and will follow your progress with interest and anticipation of even greater achievements.

Hi Phil & Aidan. Thanks for joining the Location x3 group. I am hoping that we are able to stimulate some interesting discussions here around "location" in the mobile & web environment. I would also like to generate some traffic on the unlimited number of useful and interesting applications that need to be written using locaton as the focal point.Every aspect of our lives and all industries draws on location navigation and location based services to some extent so the canvas is unlimited.

Help spread the word!
