Are there any more?  There don’t seem to be enough to justify the requirements you’ve sent?

 

1 and 6 are basically presence use cases.  These are a little tricky to achieve with the current API, unless you are willing to accept the information from the last time your buddy visited the site.

 

The rest are simple one-shot cases.  None of these are especially difficult to achieve based on the geolocation API.  

 

On 3, I do have to say that using a website to drive my camera is odd.  I have a button that works quite well enough thanks.  Easier to build the geotagging into the camera.

 

Cheers,

Martin
