Ubilabs introduces a new webbased geo-reporting and data visualizing tool on EuroCis 2014 - the leading trade fair for retail technology.
The new tool enables businesses to visualize their data quickly and easily on the google map and helps to design sales processes more effectively. By visualizing data on a map a variety of information can be compared and spatial coherences become evident. On that basis companies can make more solid decisions relevant for market and identify interesting target groups easily.
The new tool can be used as a management information system as well as a controlling instrument or a means of distribution control. Companies which use it gain profit from the world’s most precise address coding of google to locate their stores and customers. Organize your corporate data to postcode areas and analyze them and latest market data on a graphical and intuitive user interface. As a service Ubilabs provides the most current data base of nexia, former known as infas geodata GmbH, including sociodemographic and economic market data.

What kind of traces of Jewish history are there in Hamburg? How do young people notice the jewish past in their district? The student project “Geschichtomat - Discover the Jewish Hamburg" tries to answer these questions. Pupils are given the opportunity to go search for traces in their neighborhood, they can visit archives and museums or interview witnesses in their district. Their photos, movies and texts are assigned to places in a digital map. In this way difficult to explain teaching material is illustrated and history is made more lively and understandable. The "Geschichtomat" is one of the projects of "EdiTour", a content management system, developed and designed by Ubilabs.
Geschichtomat.de is initiated by the atelier for gesellschaftsgestaltung and the Institute for the History of German Jews (IGDJ) and addresses the 9th and 10th class of all types of schools in Hamburg.
As one of the first companies Ubilabs develops and implements an application for the Firefox Marketplace: Its over 2,000 daily radar trap reports and its list of over 45,000 stationary speed cameras worldwide make blitzer.de the largest speed trap community in Europe. With blitzer.de also the Firefox OS mobile phone becomes a perfect speed camera detector: mobile speed camera messages are even received in real time.
By the use of web-based technology Ubilabs builds an application which can be used on different technical platforms. Thus Ubilabs offers its clients the greatest possible compatibility on all devices at low development costs.
Firefox OS is an operating system for smartphones and tablet computers, which is developed by the Mozilla Corporation. In Germany it is sold by Congstar since October 2013.
On Wednesday, January 15th a meeting of the data Journalists Hamburg (DDJ HH) took place in the Ubilabs office. Data journalists, developers and graphic designers came together to present and discuss social issues, new projects and technologies.
Patrick Stotz and Achim Tack explained their project “Berlin A-Z”: They bought old German CD-ROM phone directories for the years 2004 - 2012 and exported the datasets for Berlin. With unique phone number and surname as an identifier they then identified approximately 50.000 individual intra-city relocations.
As host of the evening Ubilabs presented new developments for data visualization, Marco Maas reported on his project “Call a journalist.”
Meetings of the DDJ HH serve the informal exchange of information, experiences and technical solutions that can be used journalistically. They address interested editors, designers and developers. The next meeting is planned for mid-march: twitter.com /ddjhh.
