Blogmapping

One of the things I've been working on recently is trying to geo-tag some of the content on the site so that rather than just being a list of blog entries or photographs they can be viewed geographically on a map, giving a better idea of where they are.

The new map image on the right of this page opens a map with pointers marking the locations of blog entries. Clicking on a pointer pulls up the blog title, and clicking on that opens the blog entry itself. A basic intro to using Google Maps, which the page is built on, is here - you can drag to move around the map and click on the scale to zoom in or out.

One problem is that not all of the entries I've written can be linked to a location and many would link to the same location or one very close to others, causing a lot of clutter, so not every entry is linked from the map at the moment.
