Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

Like Lance talked about yesterday, I added GeoRSS tags to my Where's Tim Location feed.

Essentially, all I needed to do was reference the GeoRSS namespaces:
xmlns:georss="http://www.georss.org/georss"
xmlns:gml="http://www.opengis.net/gml"
and add the georss:point tag

By adding that one little tag, I was then able to drop that RSS feed on top of mapufacture and get this. And Lance was able to mashup the RSS feed using RSSBus with a Yahoo local search and find the closest pizza place to me, and also input the data into RSSBus and get a Google Earth KML file back. It's so easy.

I also spoke wtih Rod Edwards yesterday about getting involved with the group that creates the standards for Geodata tags in RSS feeds and websites. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from those guys.

Next project will be adding GeoRSS tags to the Text Messaging feed so you can see on a Google Map where people send me messages from.
