I’m adding support for importing GeoRSS in uMap. This has been requested by some uMap users. One of the use cases is to be able to easily display on a map a feed from Flickr. I’ve made a demo with the last public geotaged photo added to Flickr.
You should now be able to do the same with your own feeds. Here how to reproduce, once created a map:
- get your geo feed from Flickr (in my example it’s http://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/geo/?format=rss_200_enc, remember to use the format rss_200_enc) or any other provider of RSS 2.0 with GeoRSS
- on your map, edit the layer, and add the URL as remote data url
- choose georss as format
- Click on Proxy Request, as Flickr doesn’t allow CORS on its feeds
- on advanced properties, choose GeoRSS (title + picture) as popup template
And you’re done!
This is work in progress, please test and give feedback :)
