iKatastr2 on 6th place in Křišťálová lupa 2012

I am excited   that  project I have been working on at Intergraph called ” iKatastr2″  has placed on  6th position in category “Mobile service” in national competition called “Kříšťálová lupa 2012” (Czech Internet Prize)
  • First 3 places has been occupied by popular news applications or national TV app ( hundreds of thousands users).
  • 4th place positioned  AVG antivirus application for Android. (tens of millions users)
  • 5th place took Czech public  transit application. (hundreds of thousands users)
iKatastr2 was the only map/geospatial-related application  nominated
few reasons for success are :
  •  good content provided through  OGC standards  by national mapping agency (CUZK)
  •  great user experience  for getting job done
  •  application quality and stability
  •  focus on local (national)  services rather than global

Awarding ceremony was great fun  ! it was in the spirit of end of the world in 2012 so stage was styled as cemetery and winners received among other gravestones . Each winner had a chance to say something and then they passed into the black tunnel to ‘the other side’ as the end of the world is planned in 3 weeks.
