Developers and applications have challenges matching the same location between data sources and sharing a location between applications. Why? In this panel, we'll look at the pros, cons, and challenges of using proprietary, open source, and/or community-built data sets; why there won't be one location database to rule them all; ways we can all work together to make sure your place is my place when our applications talk to each other; and why all of this is important.
