A good reference collection. Its huge and took me a while to go through most of this videos.

Almost all engineers deal with location related use cases in their products in everyday work life. The most popular are google maps integration or geo lookup and geo fencing your application. These geo features are just the tip of the iceberg. This video collection provides you insights into the whole iceberg.

You can look at location based systems from different perspectives. From a frontend perspective to provide a visualization for huge data below, from data storage perspective, from networking perspective, mobile, marketing, ecommerce etc but in summary I think Location and Big data go together.

This video collection gives you useful information and presents you with what everyone is doing with location data. How they are building the ideas the tools they use and the domains they apply this technology and the markets they impact.

The possibilities with location data are really huge and this video collection demonstrates that point very well.
