Fwix is a local information company for developers and media publishers. The mission of the company is to index the Web by location, specifically by organizing content on the Web by latitude and longitude coordinates. Fwix aggregates, in real-time, the news, events, status-updates, photos, reviews, places, and other social media in your city.
