Linking to geographic locations

We propose to enhance Mush to dereference external locations specified by entry links with the relation: Initially, we will support Atom (GeoRSS) entries (application/atom+xml;type=entry) and Geonames features (application/rdf+xml) as link targets. The precedent for specifying external entities in this way is RFC 4646: Atom License Extension, which is based on Fielding Links.

An entry such as


will be processed to

      <gml:pos>40.58526 -105.08442 0.0</gml:pos>


A feed is attached to this page. It contains one entry with a location link. The feed can have its location links resolved by pulling it through the Mush dereference service (Form, Results Feed, Results Map).
