GeoRSS and Validation Sean Gillies 2007-03-23 00:00 Sam Ruby finds GeoRSS and finds it a bit confusing. My blog entries feed validates perfectly, unlike the slashgeo feed Google references. Update: Simon Willison finds GeoRSS too. When Google adopts anything, the effect is huge. Comments Validates perfectly? Author: Sam Ruby Do you mean this feed? In particular, note the extra slash added to the declaration of the georss namespace. Re: GeoRSS and Validation Author: Sean Sorry, I accidentally typed "comments" instead of "entries". Updated above. I'm fixing my comments feed now. I've pointed the GeoRSS principals to your blog entry, and they should be able to provide more interesting and valid feeds. Re: GeoRSS and Validation Author: Sam Ruby Thanks for fixing your feed. Hopefully the Feed Validator will do its part to encourage consistency, which in turn should help fuel adoption. Re: GeoRSS and Validation Author: Simon Willison I've been playing around with GeoRSS for a while - but it's really neat finally being able to paste a GeoRSS URL in to a form and have it display in a sensible way. Re: GeoRSS and Validation Author: Christopher Schmidt Though I'm sure Simon won't read back this far, I would like to point out that -- at least for points -- there has been an ability to paste a GeoRSS URL into a form and have it display in a sensible way for months, via OpenLayers. Just go to the OpenLayers GeoRSS page and drop your URL in. Re: GeoRSS and Validation Author: Alexandre Leroux Hi Sean, You're right. Slashgeo's GeoRSS feed plugin is still in development. We're fixing these issues right now. Thanks!
