GeoRSS ::
Geographically Encoded Objects for RSS feeds

GeoRSS in Atom

Overview

Location is specified using Atom 1.0's official extension mechanism (see Extending Atom). We add a <georss:where> element as a child of the <entry> element. Within <georss:where> you may specify geography. We recommend that the GML encoding is used as follows:

GeoRSS Simple could also be used:

Atom processing software is required to either read or ignore this type of "foreign markup"--not fail, so there is no danger of breaking someone's RSS reader (or publisher) by including this <where> element in your feed.

NOTE: GML allows you to specify a coordinate reference system (CRS) other than WGS84 decimal degrees (think lat/long). If you have a need to express geography in a CRS other than this, we recommend that you specify the geographic object multiple times, one in WGS84 and the others in your other desired CRSes.

Examples
