Geohacking with Locatable
Locatable has had well over a thousand downloads in the first 12 hours, so I've just been updating the featured sites to give everyone something to play with. I haven't yet heard of any "made for iPhone" sites that can take advantage of the latitude/longitude sharing feature of lbs.tralfamadore.com, so for now the links you'll find there are publicly available web sites and services that take lat/long coordinates. I used some of the more common online mapping services to test during development, but now that I have a little more time to browse around, I'm finding a lot of interesting things that can be done already:
- Geocaching. Use your iPhone to participate in local treasure hunts.
- GeoNames. Find and identify nearby landmarks.
- Panoramio. Look at photos that have been taken near your location.
