Whilst zooming in to check the data quality on the inputs to my ‘well-travelled’ map I realised that the data made a nice summary of my time in the American West. This made me want to buy a GPS logger for my SLR. Maybe Father Christmas will bring me one next year.
I have finally finished amassing data for my well-travelled map, a map that’s going to illustrate how little of the world I’ve actually seen. The four (so far) input layers are shown below. All were automatically produced, apart from the legacy routes.
UGB has a server. Whenever somebody fails to login he records their IP address. jamesgeo.com uses the IP location service from freegeoip.net to turn these IP addresses into locations.
Two maps showing failed logon attempts over a 37 day period. Note that the IP lookup’s locations may not be entirely accurate (note the cluster at 0, 0).
