These are not Global Positioning shoes although they are pretty cool. If you want the GPS shoe, it looks like this – also pretty cool! That’s from the Platial blog. Now Platial is described as ‘The people’s atlas’ and it is – it’s social networking and mapping. That’s a bit of a different take on things than simply geo-tagging photos on Flickr. Here’s the Platial frontpage and here’s Sheffield with the potential for community mapping with information, events etc. And then Mapkit allows you to publish a map on your site/blog – but I’m not sure why I’d want to use that on my blog, but I can see where it would help others.
