New project at Quasimondo: Find out where you are

Mario Klingemann has made a cool Flash frontend to show where you are.

Pretty nifty huh – just in case you are somewhere in the world, with your laptop, and don’t have a clue where you are located. :-)

Its based on a PHP backend that checks your IP address against the NetGeo database to get your location data, and then plot it on a map. Seems to work fairly well. At least it said that I am in Oslo, Norway – which is right.

I did a little research, and found a cool little PHP script that used GD/CSS to show the same kind of data, not as cool a frontend – but might be something to look at if you are interested in such things: IP-Atlas
