Google Maps Mashup: News Explorer

July 15, 2007 at 1:21 am | Posted in ajax, google maps | 9 Comments

This is mi first Google Maps / Ajax  based Mashup.  It tries to “geolocate”  RSS news and show them over Google Maps.  Here a Screenshot:
News Explorer

Live Action” here: Google Maps News Explorer

Known Issues:  Sometimes you have to click “view” 2 or three times to view news over the map (It seems that there are some problems in the service that provides RSS to GeoRSS conversion)

Lessons Learned: Ajax programming can be really painful.   Firebug rocks!!!

(Coming Soon: A little tutorial on “How to create your own Google Maps News Explorer”).
