Geolocation Plugin for WordPress

This Geolocation Plugin will be a nice addition fer people who do travel bloggin' or who write about thin's in a particular area (restaurant and business reviews, hyperlocal news, etc).

The plugin adds a subtle but powerful addition t' posts ye’ve geotagged usin' WordPress fer iPhone:  a link appears inside yer post with a short description o' th' location where th' post were bein' tagged.  When yer users hover o'er th' link, an interactive map appears allowin' them t' view th' location as a pin on th' map.

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