The town hall of Ribeirão Grande, Brazil, put a map, based on OpenStreetMap data, in the town entrance, and a big QR code (representing the string geo:-24.09498,-48.36436?z=19) representing its location (visible here on the website). This photo is pointing to the south.

The QR code links to the coordinates of the town: it requires that browsers or QR code readers have a registered handler for the geo: URI scheme (associated with a map application to render it). The URI scheme is formally described in the proposed standard RFC 5870, A Uniform Resource Identifier for Geographic Locations ('geo URI'), published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) on 2010-06-08.
