Geo Examples In The Wild
This section is informative.
The following sites have published Geo microformats, outside their normal context of hCards or 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 the wild and 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.
