Unbeknownst to me at the time, a pal of mine, Jeff Hardison (@jshardison) had gone to work there with, among others, Nick Farina (@nfarina), he of this week’s iOS to Android porting fame.
Anyway, last week, Meridian launched on Android and introduced maps of JELD-WEN Field, the home of the MLS Portland Timbers. That’s Major League Soccer if you’re scoring at home.
Mapping indoor spaces is hugely valuable and so far, underserved. There’s a ton of potential for large corporate campuses, college campuses, conferences like Oracle OpenWorld, museums, libraries, and pretty much any large venue to take advantage of indoor mapping, which, one established, offers further innovation areas for AR (Augmented Reality).
For now, you’ll have to be content with the home of the Timbers, Powell’s and a handful of other venues, at least from Meridian. At least they’re on iOS and Android now.
