Thanks to Matt Burke from My Tunstall for these instructions.
Drupal has a module called the “Location module”, a fantastic add on for the CMS, which allowed me to create a location based business directory on MyTunstall in hours, and the bespoke feed for Talkabout Local AR in about 5 minutes.
Basically the “location” module allows you to add location data to your posts, and will geo locate an entered address for you or allow you to drop a pin prick onto a map if address is unknown. This geo located data is stored away with your content for future use and an be presented in many ways.
Then using the Drupal Views module, a module that allows you to create lists from your content, I simply told it to create a RSS feed. Because Drupal is built on code hooks, the Location module is able to inject geolocated data into the rss output.
Screen Shots: (Adding/Editing a article).
I quickly added the location of the building in the following story, by clicking on the map, if I had an address with street name and postcode, I could also enter that if I didn’t know where to push the pin in and google would geo-locate the place for me.
