  • Key concept 1: Geotagging Process of adding geographical identification to various media such images and is a form of geospatial metadata (source wikipedia)
  • Geotagging example : Google maps- user generated control included
  • Key concept 2 :Geo-mashup “ A mashup is a webpage or a webapplication where data can be combined of different sources” (source: Wikipedia) GEO mashup combines maps with underlaying data.
  • Geo-mashup example : San-Francisco lowest Price Gas finder
    • Key concept 3: Web distributionPLATFORM
      • Content creation by end-user in collaborative way
      • Easy transfer of data to GPS device or mobile phone
  • Example Platform : create workout jogging route on mobile, webshare and export easily the GPS tracks ( http://sportstracker.nokia.com)
  • Key concept 4: Crowdsourcing or concept of ‘outsourcing’ innovation to a large ‘crowd’:users participate in making changes to geografic spatial data.
            • Active crowdsourcing : participation in map drawing
            • Examples : Open street map edit function; TomTom mapshare edit street name function.
            • Passive crowdsourcing : mobile location information sourced for better navigation Example: RTBF mobilinfo from be-mobile
            • Passive crowdsourcing : GPS Tomtom HD clouds detect alternative road - Teleatlas

  • Price shopping through mobile and GPS that combine on and offline shop(s) and reviews Example: Pongr, Shopsavvy
