Ever wanted a simpler life? Well this award recognises any company or individual, who has developed an innovative web application that uses geographic information via a website that does just that. Whether the web service is aimed at optimising internal resources and processes, or external facing to deliver smart solutions. If your web service has made life easier this is the category for you
2. Most Innovative use of Geographic Information or Location Based Content
This award recognises innovation in the use of any available geography related content.

This can be something already covered in the other categories or be something entirely different we are looking for new and interesting ways of using location in business
