Rating: 5 of 5

This presentation covers the use of geolocation information with PHP. I will start with a theorectical background of all the services, mapping systems etc involved. After that, I will discuss on how to use geo-services from PHP. From obtaining of geo-location information through databases and services, mapping services to visualize geo-aware data to geo-aware data storage, manipulation and querying.

some really neat tricks, and good to see that you can do so many things with the OpenStreetMap API. I need to dig into this again some time soon, looks really useful :)

Very interesting talk, did not expect the topic to be so complex and that it requires so much work and aproximation to get adequate results. Nice comparision of possible data-sources.
