GeoRSS is simple proposal for RSS feeds to also be described by location or Geotagged. It standardizes the way in which "where" is encoded with enough simplicity and descriptive power to satisfy most needs to describe the location of Web content.
This article further suggests to combine this geo-tagging with folkso-tagging, to provide pragmatic but efficient "what-where" identification.

    In fact, the spec itself says to use folksonomy: "Much like the tagging at sites like del.icio.us, GeoRSS does not specify any pre-defined set of tags. The expectation is that users themselves will tag as they think is appropriate and that the growing corpus of tags can be exploited by future developments in semantic web technology."
