GeoRSS is establishing itself as the easiest and most effective way to share and build maps. With huge potential to leverage the "RSS ecosystem" for the Geospatial Web, GeoRSS bridges the practices of GIS professionals and amateurs, web map hackers, and numerous services that enable location-based content.

GeoRSS is simply some straightforward extensions to RSS/Atom to encode location! Maron introduces the format and looks at the current state of development, the collaborative process at georss.org, and the services and tools utilizing the format. He'll whip up a vision of what emerges from consensus and interoperability on geodata formats.
