Integrating Google Maps into MSG
This event took place on Wednesday 18 April 2007 at 11:30

The integration of Google maps into MSG instant messenger gives users the opportunity to find where their contacts are located geographically, their presence status and provides 'click to chat' functionality. The MSG presence maps will be going live on the OU's LabSpace (http://labspace.open.ac.uk) website at the end of April and live on the LearningSpace (http://openlearn.open.ac.uk) website shortly afterwards.

This talk gives an overview of how the MSG presence maps work technically, including the problems and issues which arose during the development process and how these were addressed.

Here are the slides which were used during the presentation.
