Geo tagging

Filed under: Geotagging — kirk @ 9:00 pm

I’m starting a new section here dedicated to geotagging of sites.

Consider how you now can use services such as del.icio.us or diggit to socially publish and share bookmarked Web sites. Now, what if you could easily do this with spatial locations?

The primary thrust for this (for me) is to provide a commonly understood geographic tag (with latitude and longitude) that a nature or conservation related service could include in their site. This tag would provide basic service information and geographic reference. Then an engine could spider though such sites or a personal account could bookmark and display such items on a map…..more on this later.
