Geographic Metadata

GIS Enabling the Internet by Chris Kutler discusses the importance of geography in information needs. He uses the example of a person doing genealogy who is searching a family name in a particular place. He uses gogeo as an example of a possible solution to the problem. This is a UK only resource, but interesting. I do wish he had included GeoURL and Geo Tags and other similar efforts.
