Google: We were there!

Google: We were there!
Last Thursday we were at Google France in Paris to meet Mano Marks (Google Senior Developer Advocate) and two other representatives from Google’s Swiss and UK headquarters to talk about geoweb, open data & dataviz challenges.

Within the framework of Google Geo Road Show in Europe Mano visited Paris to meet French geo community, with geo services & big data visualization at the top of his agenda.

And we were very honoured to be invited to meet Mano and his European colleagues at Google France.

We discussed our open data projects, Google’s new geo features and services (it seems that Fusion Tables is a pretty awesome tool that can help us resolve some of our technical problems) and the big data issues.

It was a great and very useful discussion and we got added evidence that there were lots of things to do in this area. We hope to integrate some of the new geo features in Mapize in the months to come.

After the meeting, there was a very interesting conference on Big Data Visualization with Google Geo held by Mano Marks in Telecom ParisTech (prestigious French engineering school).

P.S. In the picture above, you can see one of the nice Google Maps t-shirts we were given!
