"GeoURL is a location-to-URL reverse directory. This will
allow you to find URLs by their proximity to a given
location. Find your neighbor's blog, perhaps, or the web
page of the restaurants near you."
http://geourl.org/

We could add a little script to Tiki to facilitate adding
the metadata and submitting link to GeoURL. Each Tiki
user page and each blog should be able to be listed
independently. (in addition to one general one for the
home page)

The following needs to be added to the page:
<meta name="ICBM" content="XX.XXXXX, XX.XXXXX">
<meta name="DC.title" content="THE NAME OF YOUR
SITE">

And we could adapt block-Parse_geoUrl:
"block-Parse_geoUrl is a block for phpnuke that allows
you to display the closest sites to you, geographically
speaking."

    I love that idea! It would be really really cool if that was
    connected to an image map generator that would place an icon
    on the map to indicate the physical location on a map!
