Project Title: Mobile Geo-Tagging in Social Networks with Android
Semester: 1 2011
Committe Chair: Dr. Scott A. King

Project Description: The main objective of this project is to develop a mobile app in android that gives a new perspective to social networks called event-oriented social networking. This application can build a social network and allow the users to create events at different geographical locations. The tagged events send notifications to all the userís friends or followers when they are a mile distance away from that place. The events can be scaled from a single location to entire city. This application is enhanced using the geotagging feature where each event is added with the geographical metadata information. This application can be used as an alarm system during any natural disasters where, the effected location is tagged as an event and no one is allowed to enter the radial distance that is affected by that calamity. If any user unknowingly enters the radial distance, he is alerted with notification message.
