The Bourne Identity on Google Maps

Psyked: Experiments with HTML5 Geolocation

Your real name is Jason Bourne and at this very moment CIA spy satellites are honing in on your location in an attempt to track you down ...

James Ford has been experimenting with geolocation in HTML5. The result is this rather scary Google Map with an unmanned aerial vehicle type of interface.

The map detects your location (in my case with amazing precision) and then proceeds to load a lot of information about your location. For my UK address the information included the road I live in and my postcode.

I really think it is time that we found out a little more about these Treadstone guys ...
