geographical web

The classic Internet is fixated on content that is selected from the infinite data pool via keywords. In contrast, the Geoweb is sorted by locations that can be assigned to persons. This means that the Geoweb can be used to determine the location where a person is currently located.

In the geoweb, the location techniques of navigation cell phones are combined with the cartographic display capabilities of the Web and stored with location-based information. This can be location-based services( LBS) that show the user the program of the nearest movie theater, the special offers of a department store or the menu of a restaurant. It can also be information about structures, buildings or mountains that is displayed to the cell phone user after he has photographed the corresponding motifs.

The geoweb approach goes further. In addition to the LBS services mentioned above, it includes geographic monitoring of people, such as schoolchildren or dementia patients who have strayed from their route to school or got lost, it supports meeting up with friends by informing them of the inquirer's location, or it automatically detects traffic situations by determining the speed of movement on traffic routes and highways on the basis of a large amount of cell phone data.

Geoweb services could be used to create movement profiles and transmit their state of health via personal measurement data.
