Open Source Augmented Reality Server
Welcome to LightRod.org, the open source augmented reality server, or POI (Point of Interest) search.
The software started out life as MobileMaps from 1998-2009, written in Perl, and has now been converted into PHP. Given the proliferation of geo-websites, geo-data, geo-browsers (Firefox 3.6, Google Chrome, and the iphone Safari browser) and now augmented reality phone browsers, the need arose for an open source geographic search engine, or proximity search. In its simplest form, it takes a database of points with latitude/longitude, and a search request at a given latitude/longitude, and returns the points sorted by distance.
