what about this

It's not exactly structured, but that would be possible to make it a bit better. Social networks capture what people do in some areas of the world.

For example, I'm pretty sure it would be possible to track the progress of cherry blossoms through the seasons depending on the latitude in Japan.

twitter annotation feature could help in the future.

The other solutions is to pimp above the fence of someone else :)
