It’s still a work in progress, but since I’ve already inspired Hypocentre via Twitter, I thought I might as well make this more public:
View Geoblogosphere in a larger map
The idea is simple enough – a lot of geology blogging is about places – particular outcrops and formations – and I’ve long thought that giving people access to that information would be extremely useful. Not only does it provide more context when someone is initially reading a post, but it also gives people travelling somewhere new a heads-up on interesting geology to look out for when they get there (strangely, most guidebooks are rather silent on this very important question).
I’ve still got a fair number of back posts to work through, which will probably be added to the map in piecemeal fashion over the next few weeks, but there’s enough points on there now to give you a flavour. Let me know what you think.
Ideally, I’d like to make this a group effort; I believe that with the whole geoblogosphere involved, we can sprinkle the entire globe with awesome geological content. Anyone who would like access to the map to add their posts, drop me an e-mail.
