GeoMaker update – new features and source available on GitHub

Monday, July 20th, 2009 at 8:21 am

Over the course of the weekend I finished polishing GeoMaker and uploaded the source to GitHub. So now you can use GeoMaker or its API and also host them on your own server.

The new features include:

  • Embedding of Geo microformats into a text when originally you wanted to analyse a text and intermediate text display.
  • Turning RSS feeds into maps (much like RSS2Map) with an intermediate filtering step
  • Total re-code (includes instead of one massive chunk, configuration and labels file)
  • Help and About and Developer docs

See the changes in action in the following screencast (the design of the RSS preview has changed since – more obvious now):

The next steps will be to allow for multiple map providers. Got any other ideas?
