Microblogging is a new form of blogging in which microbloggers can share their status in short posts. Microbloggers can be kept up to date with current information from microblog senders, however, Web users cannot be simultaneously updated by microblogs, to obtain the most recent information, whilst they browse Web pages since these are not updated in real time. To circumvent this time lag and provide Web users with up to date information, it is thought that an appropriate method is to associate microblogs and Web pages. Therefore, we have developed a location-based microblog viewing system to support Web users. Our system can present microblogs that are synchronized with Web pages in order to help Web users grasp the current situation in real time, both easily and effectively. In order to map heterogeneous media, we extract the relationship between microblogs and Web pages by generating queries based on common location names. In this paper, we discuss our prototype system and evaluate of our proposed mapping method's effectiveness.
