Brussels / 4 & 5 February 2017


Working with spatial data in Go

I'm going to talk about some features that we've done recently for one of our clients "Namba Taxi":

  • Show nearest available drivers in our mobile app and moving single car on map
  • Help our partner build traffic jam map based on our data

In my talk I want to reveal:

  • How we collect GPS tracks from driver apps and save mobile traffic
  • How we implemented lightweight network interaction between the driver app and backend services
  • What solutions were used for high performance on backend
  • How we store GPS tracks for client history
  • How animation of car works inside the client app
  • How to perform monitoring and ensure that service works fine
  • Geocoding problems in developing countries with lack of maps data
