A8: Geolinked Institutional Web Content

A session at IWMW 2007 (Institutional Web Management Workshop)

Monday 16th July, 2007

3:30pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

It is becoming more common to "hide" information in Web pages for retrieval by intelligent Web clients; this may be done by elements in the header, or by tagging of material in the page body (microformats). One application of this is attached geographical location to objects, which can be used to link to maps, or provide input to dynamic mashups. The purpose of this section is to:

put together a set of small demonstrations of applications in different institutions (at least Salford, Bath, Oxford and Northumbria)
discuss different techniques of acquiring and storing data
see whether there are any useful inter-institutional collaborations to work on
