The future of mobile mapping should be as real-time as a Twitter post — With Danny Moon, co-founder of UpNext

If ever there is a business suited for the always-on world of smartphones it is mapping — whether that involves directions from a GPS or informative overlays, mapping is as natural an extension to phones as fingers are to your hand.

This is where Danny Moon and UpNext play: Perfecting the portable mapping experience.

There is proprietary technology, vector images instead of tilled maps and a desire to incorporate real-time information onto the map but the really great approach that UpNext is taking is not reinventing the wheel for these services. Adding an a third-party layer, be they localized Twitter posts or traffic reports or event restaurant reviews and ratings is the killer application to mapping and Danny’s team is on it.

Enjoy!
