GeoCoding API updates

I’ve added a new geocoding API, metacarta-geoparser:

$ sudo gem install metacarta-geoparser

MetaCartaGeoParser contains two geocoding APIs, #locate:

gp = MetaCartaGeoParser.new
location = gp.locate ‘baghdad’
p location.coordinates
p location.confidence

and #locations:

gp = MetaCartaGeoParser.new
locations, viewbox = gp.locations ‘seattle’
p locations.length
p location.first.coordinates
p viewbox # coordinates of a box showing all returned locations

I’ve updated geocoder-us to use the RDF API so now you get a reliable
address. I’ve also added a Location object making the API similar to
the other three libraries.

I’ve switched all the APIs to use the new rc-rest library that makes
it easy to implement and test REST-like web services APIs.

I’ve added a mailing list:
