Firms Launch Geography-Based Search Engine

Share this article:
Vicinity Corp., Palo Alto, CA, and Northern Light, Cambridge, MA, Monday said they were introducing the first geographically enabled Web search capability that would give consumers the ability to find virtually anything by location on the Web -- from bike races to singles events to restaurant listings.


The two firms said they will provide the service via Northern Light's search engine, using Vicinity's GeoSearch technology.


Through the addition of the GeoSearch technology, consumers can include location information in a search request and receive a listing of Web pages that are sorted by geographic relevance.
