Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Geolocation Plugin for WordPress

This Geolocation Plugin will be a nice addition for people who do travel blogging or who write about things in a particular area (restaurant and business reviews, hyperlocal news, etc).

The plugin adds a subtle but powerful addition to posts you’ve geotagged using WordPress for iPhone:  a link appears inside your post with a short description of the location where the post was tagged.  When your users hover over the link, an interactive map appears allowing them to view the location as a pin on the map.

You know, you could probably even combine this with the HookPress plugin, and have it automatically check you in on Foursquare, Gowalla or Yelp when you publish a geotagged post.
