Over the past decade, with rapid development of sensor built-in mobile devices, wireless ad-hoc sensor networks and open sensor platforms, the traditional technocratic Geosensor webs now are experiencing a transition towards an emerging end-user-oriented Geosensor media, through which ordinary users are able to freely process, recreate and disseminate sensor data and information for self-expression, collaborative tasks or collective wisdom etc. In this paper, we discussed the concept, implication and potential issues of Geosensor media. A general framework involving semantic interaction, geospatial interface and participatory sensing was brought out, and a typical prototype was implemented and evaluated.
