Workshops, keynotes, announcements: From May 17-19, Google’s developer conference I/O returned to Mountain View for the second year. Ubilabs’ frontend developer, Malte Modrow, attended the event and lets you in on the experience, the latest news, and the atmosphere at the Shoreline Amphitheatre premises.
A creative experiment with Google Earth’s satellite images won this year’s Webby Awards in the Netart category. Land Lines is a project by artist Zach Lieberman and the Google Data Arts Team with support by Ubilabs. We analyzed more than 50,000 satellite images and identified the strongest ones visually for a fascinating user experience.
After two years in the making, it’s finally here: the new Google Earth. Maintaining the magic of the classic app, Google has revamped Earth visually and functionally. Ubilabs assisted bringing Voyager into existence, Earth's exciting new storytelling platform. With its refresh, Google Earth is built to inspire curious minds to explore, learn, and care about our vast, fragile planet.
Be prepared for a futuristic night: On March 28, guest speakers from the European Space Agency (ESA) and Google will shed light on the future of space, maps, and geo technology. The event will take place in Mindspace Hamburg and is organized by Ubilabs and Familonet
Google Cloud Next’17 held many surprises in store, not just regarding the 100 announcements made. Ubilabs received the Google Cloud 2016 EMEA Partner Award for Maps Customer Success – a very welcome surprise.
Satellite images provide a wealth of visual data from which we can visualize in interesting ways. Land Lines is an experiment that lets you explore real satellite imagery through commonly used mobile gestures–drawing and dragging. Give it a try!
