On that note I've put together a beta site using worldkit for you all to
play with and hopefully comment on. I've been exploring the
IPaddress-->City mappings to harvest datasets via google's regular api. My
first example is a a sort of geo-voyerism:
The second url is really for you guys to try out. It geocodes google
searches with the location of the server where the google result resides.
As an example, here's a few cool searches to play with ....
Lightning/2000 nowcast filetype:txt
"Weather Station * Ambient Software" filetype:htm inurl:details
intext:"MOBOTIX M10" intext:"Open Menu" Shift-Reload
Oh - please be *patient* with the geocoder it's all *very* slow stuff on a
PIII dev box in my attic over DSL at the mo. Up to 5 min?
If anyone wants to grab lots of data - drop me a line first as I have a
lots of post-processing tools put together now to remove dups, aggregate
data, and clean up results etc etc that could be useful ...
