See past and future RHOKs on a world map
RHOK is a global event. But the event listing on the website doesn't do it justice. I thought visualizing it on a map is a great way to showcase the reach of RHOK.
The first version is online at http://rhokmap.meteor.com and it works like this: The RHOK website's RSS feed of events is pulled, locations are extracted from the XML, passed to the client for geocoding against the Google Geocoding API, pushed back to the server, stored in a database and served on a Google Map.
- Change data feed to pull from the rhok.org instead of staging.
- Integrate the map as an iFrame into rhok.org
