new book on geospatial Web technology and web 2.0

The Geospatial Web -- How Geobrowsers, Social Software and the Web 2.0 are
Shaping the Network Society is book summarizes the latest research on the
Geospatial Web's technical foundations, describes information services and
collaborative tools built on top of geo-browsers, and investigates the
environmental, social and economic impacts of geospatial applications. The
role of contextual knowledge in shaping the emerging network society
deserves particular attention. By integrating geospatial and semantic
technology, such contextual knowledge can be extracted automatically - for
example, when processing Web documents to identify relevant content for
customized news services.
