Galileo Application Days take place at the Charlemagne Conference Center from Wednesday, March 3 through Friday, March 5, 2010. Admission is free with online registration at www.application-days.eu.

The event focuses on location based services, road applications, precise positioning, public services, leisure and navigation systems development.

It will feature successful startups such as the Dutch software company Bliin and the German developers of sportsCurve.

Bliin’s GPS-based live community allows members to share images, audio, text and video from wherever they are via a map the company developed in Google.

sportsCurve is a real-time tracking and tracing platform for competition organizers and professional athletes. It uses satellite positioning and detailed map data to monitor individual athletic performances on land, sea and air.

On Wednesday and Thursday, technology companies will showcase their projects in countryside, urban, playground and harbor environments at an outdoor theater, the Application Village.

Thursday features the launch of the 2010 European Satellite Navigation Competition.
