An Introduction to building mapping apps for the iPhone and iPad
Date: This event took place live on September 28 2010

Presented by: Alasdair Allan

Duration: Approximately 60 minutes.

Cost: Free

The iPhone has quickly become one of the primary interface devices for geographically tagged data, and underlying geo-location on the iPhone and iPad devices is the Core Location framework. The framework is of the most powerful and elegant included as part of the iPhone SDK, abstracting the heavy lifting of determining the users location away from you as a developer.

This webcast will discuss how to use both the CoreLocation and MapKit frameworks to build map-based applications on the iPhone platform. It will talk you through how to build, embed and annotate maps directly into you iPhone applications. We'll then go ahead and build a simple application which will find and continuously update the user's location on a map, while simultaneously displaying the user's current latitude, longitude and current heading.
