RSS as a Distribution Medium for Geo-Spatial Hypermedia

Frank Allan Hansen, Bent Guldbjerg Christensen, Niels Olof Bouvin


This paper describes how the XML based RSS syndication formats used in weblogs can be utilized as the distribution medium for geo-spatial hypermedia, and how this approach can be used to create a highly distributed multi-user annotation system for geo-spatial hypermedia. It is demonstrated, how the HyCon annotation model can be formulated as a RSS 2.0 feed and how such feeds allow annotation threads to be distributed across multiple weblogs and servers.
