Steve Prashker, DGES Instructor, writes about mobile cartographic application innovations

Cartography and geomatics meet WalMart in Steve Prashker’s recent article featured in Cartouche, the newsletter of  The Canadian Cartographic Association.

“This location meets store inventory scenario sounds like a perfect match for a smartphone or tablet app that answers these two key questions: Where are the coffee makers located, and what models are available, or more generically, where is this product I am looking for and what models, types, brands, sizes are available? It is also a worthy example of how to get cartography students to critically assess and analyse what information would be required to make a system like that work, and how to present that information in a useful manner.”
