Geo.gy: Location Shortener

Groups

Have you ever been in the middle of a conversation and needed to share your location with the other party? Geo.gy is a location shortener service. It allows you to easily share your location with your peers by encoding it in a short URL which we call a "geolink." It is platform-independent, and based on HTML5, so you can use any device with a modern browser to generate a geolink, simply by visiting the project's page. There are no user accounts, so geolinks remain anonymous. You can use Geo.gy to add location context to a post, SMS, anything you want decorated with location context.
