Personalised time/place knowledge goal of ThunderMaps

Personalised time/place knowledge goal of ThunderMaps

By Peter Kerr for sticK

(sticK - 13 November 2012 ) Location-based intelligence is one of the up-and-coming applications of all things mobile.

Wellington-based startup ThunderMaps reckons it has a solution to a problem – individuals and organisations having geo-knowledge that is valuable to others, but having no practical way of sharing their information.

ThunderMaps co-founder Clint Van Marrewijk says the five person team’s goal, is to reduce the barriers to the adoption and use of spatial information by the public.
