Spatial multimedia (pictures, video, audio, etc linked to a specific location) has been a goal for many researchers over the last decade in order to link qualitative information to the more quantitative GIS information. Now with the explosion of web-based mapping it has become a simple task to create hyperlink this media to specific locations. This is just on the of the many examples of this.

I will be testing out a couple of new themes and customizing them in the next few days to determine the one we like best. This shouldn’t have too much of an impact on the site since most everything is dynamic content. If you had formed a strong attachment to the original design let me know and I will consider going back to it.

There are several other Geography related blogs out there. While some of these are listed in the BlogRoll on the right, below this is not a complete list. As I continue to get the site set up I will include a page of links to many of these blogs and sites. For now, here is a link to Engadget’s GPS blog. I go to Engadget a couple of times a day just to see what is new in the world of technology.

There has been quite a bit of research into semantic interoperability in web mapping. This extension takes this idea one step further and ties the semantics of the web to the map itself giving the user the ability to aggregate web information then viewing the information via Google Maps. I will try to do a review of this extension on the Podcast this weekend after I have had a couple of days to play with it.
