The advent of mobile internet and GPS led some to predict 'the death of geography'. With information no longer anchored to specific locations, there were concerns that geography would simply dissolve into a placeless, global 'space of flows'. However, locative media is now shifting the focus away from placeless flows and back to geography. By equipping many mobile phones with GPS, locative media are now 'grounding the internet'. This article provides an overview of existing literature and research in this field in order to develop a synthetic overview of the various types of locative media, and the geographies arim them.
