   We just launched a new site at


    which is based on data from dbpedia and freebase and uses
openstreetmaps for mapping.

    Behind it all is a 'semantic GIS' engine that combines the ability
to represent traditional GIS with the ability to make assertions such as
"The Empire State Building is in Manhattan."  A particularly remarkable
feature is that very few of the images are geotagged:  we're able to
establish the locations of the photographs based on text and other
available evidence.

    Any thoughts?
