A map can show you where you are or how to get from here to there. But in a world of location aware devices maps can do so much more. Maps and location-based features are the foundation for many apps and provide a rich contextual experience that transforms based on your environment. Open source location services and map frameworks can give you greater transparency, flexibility, compatibility, and control when building location-based apps. This talk will explore how to implement maps and other location-aware features on Android using open source and open data.
