I’ve added the listings locations, in the Simple GeoRSS format, to vivirama feeds.Since recently, Google Maps website and API support GeoRSS. Thanks to this, you can view vivirama geotagged feeds in the Google Maps website, by entering the URL of the feed in its search box. The screenshot above is an example of what you’ll see (it corresponds to the equivalent view of Barcelona long term apartment rentals in vivirama). But I think the most interesting things enabled by geotagged data and the tools that support it (like Google Maps API) are yet to come: new apps combining and visualizing all this data in useful new ways. We’ll see.
