How it works


GeosNews is really simple and intuitive, everyone can use it without any trouble:

Once on the homepage http://us.geosnews.com/ your browser will ask you to geo-localize your position .
After doing so, GeosNews will shows the synthesis of the latest news closer to you, sorted by date and time of publication;

NB: the position indicated by your browser is based on the position of your internet provider 's node, therefore, particularly for smaller urban areas, it may be far from your actual location. In this case, simply move the map to the point of interest or search your location using the appropriate field on the toolbar.

Via the toolbar you can search for a location, choose the starting level, filter results and search news by keywords.

Clicking on the news title, another page will open and there you'll can read more and find also other news related by topic and location.
