Subject Question/Proposition: Searching and indexing with geographic index/metadata
Date Thu, 08 Aug 2002 23:45:55 GMT
Dear technical search engine specialists,

I am preparing a students semester project and I have the following

Do any ideas or plans exist for searching and indexing with geographic

I am looking for a prototype which allows to narrow any keyword search
(typically places or regions) with a geographical extent or vice versa, look
for any resources falling inside a given geographical extent. 

Additionally I could imagine, that there are specialized sites, which publish
structurized metadata (e.g. in RDF like the News-RDF/XML) which would allow a
more structured (category) search.

Any ideas or comments?
