ILM Update

November 23rd, 2007 by MDob

I forgot at least one important ILM speaker who might be of interest to you. Christophe Maire, who is had of Nokia’s Location-Based Experience Development, will discuss Nokia’s interest in local search, local media and LBS. Also, he is expected to speak about Nokia’s proposed acquisition of NavTeq. Christophe is scheduled to speak on Friday.

I am interested in finding out how Nokia intends to work with carriers to implement UGC in map updating, which their senior management indicated was one of the goals in acquiring Navteq. Hopefully Christophe will have something to say about this or perhaps Matt Booth, moderator of the session, will do so, as Matt is very good at asking insightful, but difficult questions.
