Geo Jolie: The Jet Set get GeoTagged!

I am Johnnie come lately to this, but the Geo-community is in a buzz over Angelina Jolie’s series of tattoos marking the location of the birthplaces of her four children.  As far as tattoos go, that’s about as cool as it gets.

(Source: "Angelina Jolie is a Geowanker" at O’Reilly Radar)

The coordinates are in Degree Minutes Seconds notation because they look cool.  The first thing I do when I get a set of coordinates in this notation is to translate it into Decimal Degrees.  Why?  Because they are easier to work with.

Then I type the coordinates into the "Find — Lat/Long" input and the Visual Fusion Client map flies me to the location of those coordinates.  Turns out the coordinates in the snapshot are for Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Alright, now I am in Cambodia.  I turn on the "Create GeoRSS Feed" tool, drop a point, and attach RSS metadata.  I could also draw lines and polygons, but I just don’t.

When all four coordinates are plotted I save the GeoRSS feed.  Now it is a xml-based file that can be shared out to the masses.

So, here is that tattoo flush with annotations and very important analysis…
