Currently to consume a GeoRSS feed into ArcGIS Desktop you must have a licensed instance of the interoperability extension installed.
However in ArcExplorer you have had the ability to add a GeoRSS feed to your product for years.
Most emergency management agency’s are or have the ability to publish a GeoRSS feed, however as GIS professionals we cannot use these feeds in ArcGIS Desktop to support incidents unless we can convince the bean counters spend extra dollars on extensions.
Sometimes a GeoRSS feed is the only reliable (and up-to-date) source of information available.
Can we please have this functionality added to ArcGIS Desktop.
I think the best option would be a backwards compatible .esri add-in
I am sure the cleaver guys and girls at ESRI could do this with one hand tied behind their backs for at least the 10.x version.
