Blogger Adds Geotagging

Blogger has added geotagging to its new post editor in Blogger in Draft. In Blogger in Draft there is now an 'add a location' button that allows bloggers to add a location to their blog post. Clicking the button opens a small Google Map. To enter a location it is possible to just click on your location on the map or use a search box to find your location.

When the post is published a geotag is displayed below the blog post as a link, which will open up Google Maps (or not, it seems, if you are using the classic version of Blogger like me). The location is also included in the blog’s RSS and Atom feeds using GeoRSS

Map Your Blog has some great ideas on how you can use the new geotagging option to enhance your Blogger blog.
