1NAME
2    OpenGuides - A complete web application for managing a
3    collaboratively-written guide to a city or town.
4
5DESCRIPTION
6    The OpenGuides software provides the framework for a
7    collaboratively-written city guide. It is similar to a wiki but provides
8    somewhat more structured data storage allowing you to annotate wiki
9    pages with information such as category, location, and much more. It
10    provides searching facilities including "find me everything within a
11    certain distance of this place". Every page includes a link to a
12    machine-readable (RDF) version of the page.
13
14BUGS AND CAVEATS
15    At the moment, the location data uses a United-Kingdom-specific module,
16    so the location features might not work so well outside the UK.
