GeoMedia: location-based multimedia messaging

Project description

Unlike Post-Its, virtual notes preserve privacy, can be remotely put to any place and do not clutter the environment. In contrast with other location-based messaging systems working with plain text notes, GeoMedia supports rich multimedia content such as high-resolution images, audio and video. Multi-sensor positioning system used in GeoMedia works both indoors and outdoors and provides better accuracy and coverage than traditional methods like GPS.
