Sharing on the Internet, even among computing devices in close proximity, is both inefficient and inconvenient. Online services and websites do not take advantage of easily obtainable geo-locational data that can improve sharing. We at Team FLIP have extended an existing mapping system called TerpNav with functionality that allows proximate users to interact and collaborate while sharing digital information. This study demonstrates both the feasibility of and demand for a more efficient and interactive method to exchange information among proximate networks of people.
