Once visited, you can see nice OVI map of place based on ISP of yours with clickable foursquare places to explore.
Plus current weather and forecast displayed.
Just below the map you can see latest tweets from location (refresh tweets works too as well as located news feed).
Little magic thing happens when a place name (or address/city) entered instead of detected IP.
For example Sherlock Holmes Museum - to see what's up at Baker Street -> OK.
Know the place and want to refresh memories? Or wanna check views of where never was before?
Look, geo photos from flickr and instagram are on the right...
Click for the picture full details or browse for next.
Previous tweets from specified location (as far as available) are reachable.
These tweets location radius is adjustable as well (to investigate the exact place or wider range).
One more cool feature is you can refine tweets within that radius for specific search words.
For instance, to locate tweets with photos from these geotagged scope just enter word (at bottom left) photo -> click search within!
Well, links on these photos (usually from fb, instagram, twitter, tumblr and others) are clickable...
Hm... looking for ... what if to enter instagram cats -> search within?
What are (they tweeting about) recent news in newspapers ... ok, let's check nytimes -> search within!
More results? Just click Radius+ to increase search area...
Still using google search? Better use (twitter geo powered) search within!
BTW, how about vine.co twitter videos from the place? Sure, click THE VINES to watch it playlisted...
API for vines: https://api.vineapp.com/ (unofficial yet).
Under tweets feel free to check what's top on Amazon by random category (at the moment from 10 available global locations)!
And below that are random space cats pics (for your pleasure)..
Gecko Landmarks is working on an easier way of giving directions. The theory behind their madness is that “everyone thinks in landmarks”. They took this idea and ran with it. In fact they have run all over the world with this idea. They have now collected landmark data for every country in the world. Most of this data is now available in the Gecko Landmarks API.
