The Global LBS Challenge – North America


About the Annual Global LBS Challenge
A developer contest created to catalyze growth in the location-based services industry. The NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge is now entering its third year, continuing to encourage developers to build location-enabled applications for wireless devices. The NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge was first launched in North America in Fall 2003, focused on driving the development and visibility of innovative navigation solutions for wireless devices. This year’s challenge will offer developers the opportunity to submit applications in four categories: business applications, entertainment and leisure, navigation, and social networking. NAVTEQ’s decision to proceed with the contest for a third year stems from industry validation of the value the Challenge has created for the LBS industry overall.

This year, the one-of-a-kind contest gets even better. You'll compete for a grand prize of $50,000 in cash and $100,000 in NAVTEQ data licenses. Enter your application today in one of these four growing LBS categories:
- Business Applications (Asset Tracking / Field Services / Billing / Buying / Advertising)
- Entertainment & Leisure (Gaming / Location-based Imaging / Athletics / Travel)
- Navigation / POI Look-up / Traffic
- Social Networking (Peer to Peer / Find Me / Personal Security)
