    What's the role?

    As our digital and physical lives become increasingly inter-connected, our map of the world is rapidly changing. With every connected device or sensor capable of generating and sharing its context and location, it is data that will connect this complex new world. The question is how do we make better use of that data and transform it into useful services for people and organizations – all in real-time?

We will achieve this by building a web application where a user can sign-up, discover and explore data on a map and run batch or stream data processing jobs to create value-added location based content, all in a self-serve cloud environment.
