There are several scenarios where business processes benefit by integrating spatial information; ie associating activities to specific geographical locations. This article discusses and proposes requirements for a system of Business Process Management of ad-hoc type, (ad-hoc BPM) geo-referenced, focusing on conflicts of coordinating activities that may arise from its dependence tasks, or spatial locations. We justify the predominance of spatial units and propose the integration of process models with geo-referencing tools. Then, we analyze communication requirements required to coordinate actors of geo-referenced, processes and adopt a mechanism like microblogging. We also discuss the implementation of a computational tool to support ad-hoc BPM geo-referenced, specifically explicit type microblogging messages needed to coordinate activities. Finally, the discussion of a preliminary assessment of the implementation of the prototype of the tool is presented.
