RDF Mapper 2.0

RDFMapper: an RDF-Based Web Mapping Service "RDFMapper is a web service that searches an RDF or RSS file for resources with geographic locations, and returns a map overlayed with dots representing located resources. Clicking on a dot displays a web page representing the clicked resource (see these examples). Arbitrary images can be treated as maps, so the service can be used for any kind of image annotation.

RSS is translated into RDF before processing (except for RSS 1.0, which is already RDF). For brevity, RSS is mentioned in what follows only when the non-RDF variants of RSS (RSS 0.9x and RSS 2.0) require explicit discussion."
