Sounds like a great project for ThingSpeak.
I would use a channel for each tag. Since the fields in a single update all share a single timestamp, every time you post with a tag, all the other tag fields would be updated with a NULL value.
Latitude and Longitude are available with each feed entry, so if you have two fields updated in the same post, you would not be able to have separate location information. However, if the updates were from two separate devices, they would be separate entries and they would each have their own location information.
Still, I urge you to use one whole channel per device. Your data will be much easier to sort and understand.
