On your marks, get set... Wait, did you geocode your marks? I hope so, because you only have the next week to enter the Location Wild Competition from NakdReality and SimpleGeo. The winner gets $2,500 and an iPad for creating the "most interesting location-based app."
Our mashup directory contains a number of popular tags that are related such as geolocation, location and gps. These kinds of mashups cover a variety of uses from helping hikers know their location, finding nearby friends, planning travel and even turning on a lamp. The mashups we'll look at today use Google Maps and foursquare amongst others. Read below for more details on each.
