The tablet market has exploded with over 60 millions units sold to date. The result is a new type of user experience that goes beyond smartphones and desktops. Some call it the “curl up” experience, in which users both absorb and engage content. It’s an experience driven by touchscreens, screen size and connectivity, and it unlocks new and exciting opportunities for map-makers. We will discuss examples how some of the core features of mapping— navigation, search, and cartography —are being upgraded for the tablet experience, and what new mapping concepts can be brought into play on these devices.
Danny Moon is the co-founder and CEO of UpNext, an interactive 3D mapping platform for mobile devices. The UpNext mapping platform is used by companies such as the NFL and NY Times and powers the award winning app, UpNext 3D Cities. Danny runs the business operations for UpNext.
