Welcome

Carlos Labs is a Data Architecture, Integration and Consulting firm registered in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Data management, business intelligence, customer relationship systems and integration are at the core of our technical expertise.

Over the last decade we have participated in the evolution of the data universe -from the isolated islands of knowledge, to the enterprise group data warehouse- and to the global collection of dissimilar information in "mash-ups" and aggregations.

Data is everywhere. Everything depends on the data.

Malaysian MH17

In a confusing international incident, a civilian jetliner, Malaysian MH17 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down over Eastern Ukraine by a "BUK" surface to air missile.

298 innocents died. There were no survivors.

Israel under attack

The State of Israel has been under constant attack by Palestinian irregulars and their short range rockets.

Even if the technology of these rockets is crude, their explosive payload can kill and maim - and civilians are the prime objective. Populated areas close to the Gaza Strip are in danger from these rocket attacks.

North Korean satellite launch

On the 12th of December 2012, North Korea successfully launched its first satellite on the back of a Unha rocket - a modified version of the Taepodong-2 ballistic missile.

Congratulations North Korea, you've finally made it. 55 years too late.

Android: a Google Map in your Android SDK app

Using a Google Map within an Android SDK application requires the programmer to be registered with Google and use a specific API key to access the map -as the data (map tiles) belongs to them, they want to control the usage. Fair enough.

Your application must use a MapView component to display the map -this is a special View that retrieves and displays the map tiles from Google.
