Ever go to the World Geoblog link over on the right ?
I wanted to play with this a while ago, then got distracted. Then last night I read an entry on the WordPress Wiki and today decided to play.
I’ve gone to all the blogs I link to, checked to see who has decided to live at map reference 0,0 (it’s fairly crowded there I can tell you!) and put everyone else into my linkmap.
It’s static right now and does not show any last feed – I’m working on that – but it’s a neat way of showing who links and where they live.
If you want to activate the Geo info in your WP blog, or otherwise use Geo data so that others could pick you up into such a map, the format that geourl.org (the site is down) uses is:
<meta name='DC.title' content="What makes you happy ?" />
<meta name='geo.position' content="52.633005;-1.234245" />
That’s my info there obviously, and it’s Lat first.
(WordPress looks after this info once you have entered the details into the Options section, so you don’t need to bother with that format above.)
One place to get your info is www.maporama.com
Anyway, here’s my LinkMap
