This page is an '''informative''' section of the [[geo|geo specification]].

The following sites have published [[geo|Geo]] microformats, outside their normal context of [[hcard|hCards]] or [[hcalendar|hCalendars]], and thus are a great place to start for anyone looking for examples "in the wild" to try parsing, indexing, organizing etc., in addition to the in many [[hcard-examples-in-wild|hCard examples in the wild]] and [[hcalendar-examples-in-wild|hCalendar examples in the wild]]. If you find Geos outside of hCards / hCalendars anywhere else, feel free to add them to the '''top''' of this list.

 +
Examples of large publishers of geo microformat (sorted by stats first, then other presumably large publishers).

All '''1.6+ billion OpenStreetMap nodes''' have a geo microformat. E.g.

Want geosHave geos

This page is an informative section of the geo specification.

The following sites have published geos, outside their normal context of hCards or hCalendars, and thus are a great place to start for anyone looking for examples "in the wild" for inspiration, or try parsing and indexing, in addition to the in many hCard examples in the wild and hCalendar examples in the wild.

Contents

Large Publishers

Examples of large publishers of geo microformat (sorted by stats first, then other presumably large publishers).

OpenStreetMap

All 1.6+ billion OpenStreetMap nodes have a geo microformat. E.g.

OpenStreetMap wiki Stats page says there are over 1.6 billion nodes on OpenStreetMap.

OpenStreetMap GPS trace pages and diary entry pages also have geo.

Flickr

Flickr supports the geo microformat on all geotagged photos. Within 11 days of launch there were now over 3,000,000+ photos (as of 2006-09-07) marked up with the "geo" microformat.

Geograph British Isles

Geograph British Isles has support for geos on 350,000+ photo pages, for example

POI66

POI66 has over 58,500 waypoints Geo-formatted, many describing trails e.g.:

Google Panoramio and Maps

Panoramio (Google acquired in 2007) is a geolocation-oriented photo sharing service that publishes numerous photos with the geo microformat (including latitude and longitude): e.g.

Google Maps links to nearby Panoramio photos. E.g.


new and uncategorized examples

Have geo? If you have a site with geo(s), add it to the top of this list. Include at least one URL to a page that includes actual geo markup. Examples without direct links to pages with geo(s) will be removed. Check back after a few days, to see if anyone has found any problems with the examples supplied. Note that examples may be categorized and moved to the grouped section below.

indirect examples

Examples which don't publish the geo microformat themselves, but automatically link their geo information to a separate site/page that with their geo microformat markup.

Wikipedia

Wikipedia's GeoTemplate which is called by many thousands of other Wikipedia pages have links to pages exposing their geo microformat markup. Example:

German Wikipedia (Wikipedia-DE) map link pages have geo e.g.

Italian Wikipedia (Wikipedia-IT), has geo on all map link pages automatically linked from pages using the coord template, e.g.

Dutch Wikipedia (Wikipedia-NL) has geo on all its map-links pages, e.g.


examples with some problems

Entries may be moved here if there's a problem with the way Geo is used on the page concerned. If the page is yours, and you want to improve it, see the hCard & Geo FAQ, or raise any queries on hCard & Geo Issues or the mailing list, where people will be happy to help you.
