GeoFeeder is a GeoRSS viewer in Adobe AIR.

It focuses on the map (in all flavors: Virtual Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, OpenStreetMap …) and on the data. An advanced, html-capable tooltip window displays the feed-entries’ information. A list allows for simple sorting by title. It’s feed “database” is shared between all installations to aggregate as many interesting sources as possible.

Recently enhanced with various settings for a selfrunning “presentation mode”.
