Something like this might be fun for the WGA web site -- to set up after the campout of course. Smile

Yeah, I'd like to see the clusters and outposts on a map.

I like maps.

I looked at this when Ken first posted it and the issue I have is that it appears you can't "zoom" the map in on a particular location (i.e. US, Wisconsin). So we'd be showing a world map, but 95% of the people logging in are from Wisconsin so the "stars" would just be all on top of each other anyway.

Maybe someone knows of an alternative that would work better in this regard? Or maybe I'll find the time to write our own (I know, keep dreaming Smile)...

It states on the site that you can get to the city level.

So what is maps.amung.us exactly?
maps.amung.us allows you to embed a small or medium sized world map into your blog or website, that shows where your visitors are coming from right down to the city level!

Yes, it does attempt to guess what city people are logging in from (using their IP address) and you can view the city information if you mouse over the various stars on the map. However, you can't zoom the map into the city level and see where people are coming from plotted on a more detailed map.

And this type of "logic" can be sketchy at-best. I was logged into a Wireless connection at Oracle training in the Chicago-area a couple weeks ago and logged onto www.google.com on a web browser and Google auto-forwarded me to their switzerland version thinking I was logged onto the internet from Switzerland... Would have been more fun than sitting in Oracle training in Chicago!

Ummm how about trails.com? I think that's what it's called.
