Mapping in Headers

Michael Tyler - Map HeaderI finally have been catching up on my RSS feeds and saw that Dan Catt pointed out this nice example of a GoogleMap blog header.

What's interesting is that the map has moved from the sidebar, or in post, to the most prominent space on the page.Michael also did a very nice job with unique marker icons based on the post/image/tour.

This is a feature I'd like to add to GeoPress, pulling in and aggregating multiple GeoRSS streams, to mix-in with your blog posts. Currently, you can do this with Mapufacture, but it would be nice to build this all into GeoPress itself.
