    55Because it was written to be city guide software, it has some impressive features such as searching for things by area, or within a certain distance of other places. You don't need to do anything special for this, just provide your Guide with the data and the software will do the work for you. You can even integrate your Guide with mapping sites such as Google Maps, and image hosting sites, with the mininum of effort.

    7 Because it was written by a bunch of geeks, OpenGuides has some groovy behind-the-scenes features, mostly involving heavy use of the Resource Description Framework (RDF). This means that other websites and software can pull information from your Guide, display it in different formats, and play around with it in different ways, all with the minimum of hassle. Again, you don't have to do anything special for this; it Just Works.
