HP Gloe, a geo-tagging experiment from HP Labs, that maps web content to specific locations in order to provide a platform for location-based discovery of information. Although the app is meant for mobile users, HP site features an online version of the app which you can try now. Online app serves as a proof-of-concept which demonstrates how this type of system could work. To use Gloe, you enter in your current location and it returns pre-populated content from Wikipedia plus review and photo sharing sites. It also features tag clouds of content by category, trending sites, recommendations, local experts and Facebook integration. Developers can also use HP Gloe API to build location-aware services of their own. HP offers a few suggestions, including: Personal Bookmarking, Discovering Local News, Virtual Tours, Geographic Polls, Searching Local Businesses, and Sharing Geo-tagged Pages with Friends.
