Thanks for taking he lead on this Platonides. Api looks nice! Is the 
feature to provide a bounding box already available? That's used by 
Google Earth/Maps and OpenStreetMap.

The format of Layar files is described at 
http://layar.pbworks.com/w/page/7783213/API-structure .
In short: The client (a phone) provides a location and some more info. 
The api should return POI's (point of interest) in a JSON format.

So on the search side we need bounding box and point+distance search to 
get this working.
