  2. 2. theory • places as semantic fields (localized tag clouds) rather than point geometric data
  3. 3. theory • named routes between and around places
  4. 4. screencast http://www.vimeo.com/3996917
  5. 5. technology • Google maps Flash API • FLEX (or “Flash for programmers”) • RDF on the Talis triple-store platform (endpoint: http://api.talis.com/stores/vtanasescu- dev1/services/sparql) • Elements of the SNAP/SPAN ontology for spatial and temporal descriptions • location URIs use the geohash algorithm ( => point location + scale) • other shapes use GML • still alpha
  6. 6. future • use for research in peri-urban areas of other mega cities • extension of the notion of place (ability to shape the fields) • public access: map routines and places • temporal aspect: allow people to play routes
