CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - October 17, 2008) - MetaCarta, Inc., the leading provider of geographic search and referencing solutions, today announced Bob Warren, Vice President of Products at MetaCarta, will speak about location based search on two separate panels at Mobile Internet World.

Who:      Bob Warren, Vice President of Products, MetaCarta

Panel 1:  Past, Present and Future of Location-based Mobile Services
          Experience an introduction to location based mobile services
          including presentations on user privacy expectations and
          technology to support privacy with mobile location based
          services, location based mobile marketing and location based
          search.
When:     Thursday, October 23 at 2:00 PM

Panel 2:  Does LBS have a Future Beyond Navigation?
          While location-based services for consumers have enjoyed a fair
          amount of hype during the past year, no one can argue with the
          success enjoyed by mobile navigation services, which are
          consistently one of the most popular services carriers offer
          today. However, other applications like friend finders, family
          finders, location-based marketing and location-based shopping
          have found meager uptake in many markets. Is there a consumer
          market for other LBS applications besides navigation?
