        This proposed domain name would have vast implications for emerging digital imaging applications for the Web, all of them positive.

For instance, immersive imaging, known under various names such as Virtual Reality, etc., provides 360 degree images from a single rotation point.  Such images will benefit immensely from having an associated geographical anchor point - one that ".geo" can admirably provide.  The end collective result will be image collections that will have historical interest for millenniums.    

Imagine the archeological value of knowing exactly what Rome looked like thousands ago, and how the city expanded over time.  Today, the world hotly debates global warming.  Time sequence images spanning centuries captured at the same geographic co-ordinate on glaciers and polar ice caps might well help sort out the issue.  But, its difficult to know where the images were captured when all you can see is a two mile thick ice cap stretching to all horizons.

The application to beach erosion study, resort facilities, climatology,  volcanic activities, agriculture, desert creep, geology are endless.  This proposed domain name is an absolute winner.
