Geeks With Blogs

Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

Chandu Thota, a Microsoft MapPoint developer has a service called FeedMap. A lot of people have FeedMap badges on their blog that shows the blogs around their location. The one thing missing from this service is GeoRSS tags, so I took a look at his API and created an RSS feed with GeoRSS extensions.

My service is driven by query strings. You can pass in a place, or a lat and a lon, and also an optional count like this:,ks&count=45

or this

Then, you can overlay the data from FeedMap in relation to my real time GPS location. So, to see all the bloggers in Lawrence, KS on Where's Tim, use this url:,ks

Just another cool way to easily view geographic data using GeoRSS.
