Interesting. I've done a bit of development in this area as well. Three
things in particular...
1.) Giving everything, and everywhere, an =LFReD Name=, LFReD Names are
advanced namespaces that have associated data. This data can then be easily
retrieved using natural language processing... for example, N43 39.015 W79
53.247 could be associated with the LFReD Name =Joe= So a question such as
Where is =Joe would pop up the actual location on a map. (For more info
on =LFReD Names= check out www.LFReD.com)
2.) Created a very accurate html based plotting/mapping server using Rebol
(Now THAT is going back a couple of years)
3.) Created a system that turns long/lat coordinates into a 7 digit number
for ease of memory... although this has been re-worked into the =LFReD
