FutureLab, Celestron, TeleAtlas

FutureLab is a non-profit that is making available for schools Create-A-Scape. The package, based on original work developed by a research arm from HP in Bristol, UK enables students to produce "mediascapes".

Or narratives with images, sound and GPS data. The whole package includes the necessary software and hardware. From ElectronicsWeek.

Celestron announced a new series of telescopes with GPS technology.

"The CPC Series' internal GPS receiver automatically downloads the date and time from orbiting satellites and pinpoints its exact location on Earth."

TeleAtlas will be providing map data to Nokia according to article from InformationWeek. Check the video at the bottom of the page showing how TeleAtlas produces map data with its mobile mappers. Nice PR.
