17Apr2019 GeoRSS Date Picker

I added a date selection feature to my GeoRSS viewer. One problem with this idea is that standard GeoRSS does not include a date in the items. However, regular old RSS does include a date, and GeoRSS is based on RSS, so I decided it was ok to use RSS's <pubDate> element for this. RSS wants an RFC822 date in the element, but any date format that JavaScript understands will work.

So far the only GeoRSS map I have is my Telegraph Bike Lane Blockers. I'll have to think about other geo/date data sets where this would be useful.
