skobbler makes the next step – at WhereCamp Berlin

As was already announced in our post a few weeks ago, WhereCamp is taking place on the 22. & 23. of June 2012 at the Beuth University in Berlin. skobbler is one of the main sponsors and very proud to be a part of this event. Today we want to reveal one reason, why we are so excited about it and why WhereCamp is definitely worth a visit.

As you know, skobbler has been developping map-based apps for years. We’ve learned a lot regarding the development of digital map-based services and by now we have a know-how – especially concerning the OpenStreetMap – that is almost without equal. We think it’s time to share this experience and run a new path, in addition to our apps.

We want to give third parties the possibility to use the OpenStreetMap for their current needs or to create new services – either on mobile devices, in the web or somewhere in between. Therefore, there will be a little premiere at this year’s WhereCamp:

We will introduce the first prototype of our new map access technology “GeOS”.

Here’s a little foretaste of what is to come for all tech enthusiasts: GeOS’ map-rendering will offer both on- and off-board functionality. The mobile platforms for which it will be initially available are iOS (iPhone 3GS+) & Android (2.3+ incl. Kindle Fire).

For those who want to know more and are in the Berlin area at the dates mentioned above – come by and visit us at WhereCamp. We’d be happy to see you there.
