Purpose & Objectives of this Session


GeoRSS, Geographically encoded objects for RSS, is a new innnovation in technology.  GeoRSS allows you to add geographic information to an RSS feed that can be used to distribute blogs, podcasts, images, and other digital media.  This geographic information can be used to display the origin of an RSS feed as a point on a map.  Alternatively, GeoRSS can be used to provide a location of media, such as an image, tied to a point, line or boundary/polygon.





GeoRSS can be used in the classroom to collect and share data for projects.   An example of classroom use of GeoRSS is tracking a journey of scientists or other travelers through their geocoded blog entries and image postings.  Students can collect information and analyze geographic questions related to the journey.  Students may also create their own georeferenced projects, journals, trips.   GeoRSS adds a new dimension to the collaboration and communication students have with others in their community and the world.
