Overview: This paper published by Microsoft states that the Geo-centric web interface are useful to visualize spatially and geographically related data such as addresses, neighborhoods, weather, traffic, and so on. Desires to augment additional useful information to these interfaces have led people to create custom applications that overlay their own data on top of browsable maps. This paper envisions publishing and querying real-time data (e.g., from sensors) over such geo-centric web inter-faces. Existing solutions, although useful to write simple applications as above, have several drawbacks in achieving this vision.
