Start of this Blog

This blog was set up for documenting the Leeds Met efforts in developing applications with geo-centric interfaces.

A geo-centric interface provides the user with the means of using location as a context for information. Often such interfaces are based on maps, but also could employ other means.

While the basic functionality of such interfaces, namely navigation and location-based search, is becoming "mainstream", there are many disciplines which are not yet benefiting from the possibilities such interfaces offer.

At the Leeds Met Centre for Creative Technology, we are working towards the development of applications in various domains which utilise the power of such geocentric interfaces. In this blog, we will document the progress, post new ideas, and report achievements.
