Mar 31: The LinkedGeoData repository moved to GitHub . Look there how you can now convert the data you want yourself! LinkedGeoData is an effort to add a spatial dimension to the Web of Data / Semantic Web.

It interlinks this data with other knowledge bases in the Linking Open Data initiative.
REDMOND, WASH. — May 19, 2009 — In today's fast-paced world, we routinely share information about our location with multiple people several times per day. This is traditionally done via email, phone call or text message — until now. Glympse Inc. today unveiled the public beta of its namesake service, Glympse™, offering the quickest and easiest way to safely share location from a mobile phone to help users visually answer the common question of "Where are you?" Only Glympse allows users to share their whereabouts with anyone they choose for a set amount of time using the company's patent-pending GlympseWatch™ technology. Initially available on T-Mobile G1™ phones with Android, Glympse will soon be available on the iPhone, BlackBerry®, Windows Mobile® and other leading smartphone devices. With Glympse, people can quickly share their location, pinpointed on a dynamic map, with anyone in their contact list as easily as sending a text message or making a phone call.
