MGeoRSS: Google Maps API Extension for GeoRSS
Update! Google Maps now supports GeoRSS natively!
(Use MGeoRSS if your feeds are private or behind a firewall)
is the easiest and most effective way to share and build maps. GeoRSS is supported by Yahoo!
, and many others, and is on its way to standardization

This extension integrates basic GeoRSS support directly into Google Maps. This work is public domain.
Omit the second argument to MGeoRSS.load if the GeoRSS file is on your local server.
map = new GMap(document.getElementById("map"));
georss = new MGeoRSS();
: A proxy is required to work around browser security and load remote GeoRSS files. A simple proxy in perl
