The status change of the content are updated on the map in real-time which enables users to communicate between real field and virtual environment. Publishers and receivers are authenticated using social network to ensure the trustfulness of the content. We have implemented MapWiki on Google Maps and evaluated its effectiveness. We also propose a distributed P2P-based content management method to manage locationdependent information of GMapWiki. In this content management method, each user stores his or her own locationdependent content in the local computer. This P2P-based content management method realizes scalability, flexibility and privacy of the GMapWik...
