BBC, Nokia & Ymogen = GeoStories

News has location
BBC, Nokia & Ymogen team up to create GeoStories

GeoStories is a project combining GPS, News and Innovation together. Students from Brighton University have started this unique project.

This is a very likely and useful way of reporting news and adding location to the story.

Geo-Stories Project
GeoStories uses Google Maps to show locations of events per story

"Ymogen are working with Nokia and BBC Innovation to produce Geo-Stories, an innovative 'citizen story' project, which explores how content (video, pictures and text) combined with location and time can most effectively be used to create crowd pulling stories."

Nokia N-series mobile phone(s) are used to store location and record video and geotagged photos
