This is kick-ass great, again. Dead-simple way to create areas to follow.
I love it how easy it is to create the polygons -- and get the plain txt coordinates for them.

Could this polygon tool pt b integrated w OWL? Can someone give guidance on visualizing the feed content? 

I'm copying this to both hot & talk-ht as I just yesterday talked w Nico & Brian about (and pulled hair out of my head due to) following edits in defined areas and know that this will help many operations on the field.

I'll send the polygons later, Mike. 

Thnx! And cheers from the bumpy rds of PaP,

I didn't take it that way, Serge, but thank you.

To be honest I didn't really think about OWL and ITOWorld when writing this. I was just looking for a minimally useful thing that handled polygons smoothly and was fast to set up. I was motivated by the potential needs of US users like Learon Dalby, who spoke at the Atlanta SOTM-US about his need for a way to see changes in Arkansas so that he could notify county GIS managers about them and make appropriate corrections to government data. Administrative boundaries are large, irregular shapes, and OWL seemed to be focused on small urban areas (correct me if I'm wrong about this).

Mikel: I'm using Atom; can I just namespace GeoRSS into an Atom feed and have it work? Are bounding boxes for changesets the most useful thing, because I'm using node positions to calculate intersections.

-mike.
