Episode 17 - This week we went full on international with Gary Gale of Nokia. Gary, an active geo-blogger, is also a former Yahoo! Geo team member. Until November 2012, he was Director of Places at Nokia, but he now has a new role that focuses on map enrichment from Nokia’s very active user community (described starting at 27 min 34 seconds). We also chatted about the new HERE ap, Nokia’s API, Indoor positioning, and more.
Other highlights: At 21 minutes 58 seconds, Gary discusses whether or not OpenStreetMap is “hardcore”; and at 29 minutes 52 seconds, Gary, prompted by an open-ended user question, muses on the future of maps.
