Since the site started, most of the places listed in the Encyclopedia have had links to their location on Streetmap. I’ve now replaced these with a map from Google Maps which shows the location in the page, which is more convenient.
Here are two examples: The Tower of London and Mumbai. The maps work OK on my Mac, but I did have problems displaying the pages in Internet Explorer on Windows — please try and let me know, as hopefully it’s just my PC…
Also let me know if you find anything else invconvenient about it, or that could be better. There are many improvements I could make over time now this is working.
And I haven’t forgotten about my plan to allow people to adopt Encyclopedia pages and write summaries for them — the mapping code was rather messy in there and I had to tidy it up before letting anyone loose!
