Inhaltliche Zsfg. "Spatial Computing is a set of ideas and technologies that transform our lives by understanding the physical world, knowing and communicating our relation to places in that world, and navigating through those places. With over a billion users, the potential for spatial computing to transform our modern lives is already evident. From Uber and Google Maps to consumer GPS devices, our society has benefitted immensely from spatial technology. We've reached the point where a hiker in Yellowstone, a Pokemon Go player in Paris, a self-driving car in California, a UAV surveying a corn field in Minnesota, and an Uber driver in Mumbai know precisely where they are, nearby points of interest, and how to reach their destinations. Groups of friends can form impromptu events via "check-in" models used by Facebook. Emergency services use it to locate not only 911-callers but also smart phones in evacuation zones or approaching tornadoes. Public health agencies use it to monitor the spread of infectious diseases to plan responses. Scientists use it to track endangered species to better understand behavior and farmers use it for precision agriculture to increase crop yields while reducing run-off and costs. Google Earth is being used in classrooms to teach children about their neighborhoods and the world in a fun and interactive way. Augmented reality applications like Pokemon Go are providing real-time place-labeling in the physical world and providing people detailed information about major landmarks nearby. These accomplishments are just the tip of the iceberg"--
