Every building has its own geomagnetic fingerprint and by mapping that fingerprint against a floorplan of the building IndoorAtlas is able to provide accurate location and navigation inside. The genius of this system is that it takes advantage of an existing geomagnetic infrastructure.
In this interview you will learn
How the geomagnetic fields of buildings can play a key role in indoor location
How differences between iOS and android dramatically affect indoor navigation
What are challenges of indoor navigation compared to outdoor navigation and how they are being solved.
What the future of indoor navigation looks like and how indoor navigation might be monetised going forward

Property is surrounded by a legal space that the government defined and sectioned off to the owner with a street address for tax purposes. It’s a polygon, rectangle, or square space. A host of other information is connected to that parcel, such as when it was first subdivided, is there a structure on it, and does it have utility hookups? What are the permissions, zoning, and taxes owed on it?
Jupyter Notebooksare an interface for combining code, documentation, and data access. Previously, your data was held in one location. You coded somewhere else and output it to a different folder which you opened to see what your code did. A notebook is a single place where you combine code, workflow, documentation, and the results.
Remote sensing with a difference. That’s what Ellen Christopherson, CEO and founder ofclearGrid, is here to talk about. Their unique way of collecting radio frequency (RF) data makes them a valuable partner for utility and energy companies that do any type of meter readings and billings. Ellen’s background in aviation engineering gives her an edge to see how technology can deliver efficiency in this space.
