Great news announced at the Google Maps api blog today, that GeoRSS is now fully supported in Google Maps. It is now possible just to pass the location of a GeoRSS feed as a parameter to the google maps url to see the feed rendered as an overlay. So http://maps.google.com/maps?q=http://www.edparsons.com/?feed=rss2 produces a map of this blog.
Many have been waiting for this capability, and as the Google api seems to be the most popular mapping api this is a great opportunity, GeoRSS is a really robust lightweight encoding which should now be able to reach an even wider community of users
It you are publishing simple geographic information on a regular basis why are you not using GeoRSS ?
