I find strange that your recent changes don't have GeoRSS tags so that they can be represented in ACME GeoRSS.

The recent changes have GeoRSS tags in the "GeoRSS simple" format. The "ACME GeoRSS Viewer" only supports tags in the deprecated "W3C Geo" format. See http://www.georss.org/ for details.

I could add a parameter to the feed to overwrite the default output format, if you are interested in it.


Edit :
I fixed a bug with the rssToGeoRSS converter. You can now use it to convert the Geonames recent changes feed into a feed using the W3C format.

Here the recent changes piped through the converter and displayed on ACME :

The converter can also be used to convert into GoogleEarth format. Here the Geonames recent changes feed viewed with GoogleEarth :

Is the source code for the RSS to GeoRSS process available?

The converter is based on the java Rome library with a GeoRSS Module.

The GeoRSS Module is open source and developed by geonames :

Thanks, it is enough as it is now. I first tried rssToGeoRSS but it didn't work.
