I have the following XML:

<ns1:getBannerLinksResponse xmlns:ns1="http://endpoint.website.com/">
    <ns1:return>
        <ns1:campaignID>0</ns1:campaignID>
        <ns1:categoryID>200230455</ns1:categoryID>
        <ns1:categoryName>Promotion</ns1:categoryName>
        <ns1:linkID>10001599</ns1:linkID>
        <ns1:linkName>KFL-20% off No Min</ns1:linkName>
        <ns1:mid>3071</ns1:mid>
        <ns1:nid>1</ns1:nid>
        <ns1:clickURL>
            http://someurl
        </ns1:clickURL>
        <ns1:endDate>Oct 15, 2012</ns1:endDate>
        <ns1:height>250</ns1:height>
        <ns1:iconURL>
            http://someurl
        </ns1:iconURL>
        <ns1:imgURL>
            http://someurl
        </ns1:imgURL>
        <ns1:landURL>
            http://someurl
        </ns1:landURL>
        <ns1:serverType>22</ns1:serverType>
        <ns1:showURL>
            http://someurl
        </ns1:showURL>
        <ns1:size>13</ns1:size>
        <ns1:startDate>Oct 14, 2012</ns1:startDate>
        <ns1:width>300</ns1:width>
    </ns1:return>
</ns1:getBannerLinksResponse>

I tried the following with no luck:

$data = new SimpleXMLElement($xml);
$data->registerXPathNamespace('ns1','http://endpoint.website.com/');
foreach($data->xpath('//ns1:return') as $banner)
{
  $banner->registerXPathNamespace('ns1','http://endpoint.website.com/');
  var_dump($banner);
}

All you need is

$data = new SimpleXMLElement($xml);
$data->registerXPathNamespace('ns1','http://endpoint.websitecom/');
$part = $data->xpath("//ns1:return");
var_dump($part[0]->children("ns1",true));

Output

object(SimpleXMLElement)[3]
  public 'campaignID' => string '0' (length=1)
  public 'categoryID' => string '200230455' (length=9)

The fix was that I needed to add a forward slash () in front of SimpleXmlElement:

 $xml = new SimpleXMLElement($this->create_gk_xml(), 0, true);

As outlined here.

$xml = simplexml_load_string($data);
$namespacesMeta = $xml->getNamespaces(true);
$mediaXML = $xml->children($namespacesMeta['media']);

<?php 
    $file = "http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&vps=1&jsv=327b&msa=0&output=georss&msid=217909142388190116501.000473ca1b7eb5750ebfe";
    $xml = simplexml_load_file($file);  
    $loc = $xml->channel->item;  
    foreach ($loc->children('http://www.georss.org/georss') as $geo) { 
        echo $geo;
    } 
?>

The way to do this in Python is:

for i, x in enumerate(SomeArray):
    print i, x

The enumerate generator produces a sequence of 2-tuples, each containing the array index and the element.
