We are planing a geo caching game, where we want to use QR Codes. Each time a player scans a QR Code, he will be redirect to a specific landing page.

To each QR Code we want to add geo information like an address or lng/lat. So we can find out, where and how often the QR Codes have been scanned, without asking the mobile device to send its location to us. Is there a service, that provides tagging a QR Code with a geo location? Best regards, Pezzo

I found this online utility - QR Code Geographic Generator

According to the site you can

Use the geographic QR code generator to create QR codes with your embedded co-ordinates. The geographic co-ordinates are stored and when scanned will redirect to a static mobile google map of your location.

Either enter your latitude and logitude co-ordinates, type in an address, or place a marker on the map below. Click the 'Create Map QR Code' button to generate the geographic QR code.

Thx! That's a good idea, but we want the users to be redirected to a specific landing page and not to a google map. The QR Code should have an URL and geo location in it encoded. – Pezzo Fezzo Nov 27 '11 at 15:45
