Map My Page

GeoJoe, over at Geocaching Journal has shown me how to incorporate "Map My Page."

With this snippet of javascript, all worldwide locations will now show a little globe next to them, like Riverside, California, and you can click that globe to see the location on google maps.

That could come in handy, but I don't think it works with some of the obscure locations here in Okinawa. Like Ishikawa, Uruma, Kin, Yaka, etc.

Neat feature!

UPDATE: It seems to work with SOME of the locations here in Okinawa, but not all.

The globe shows up in all your posts with any city name? Well that it's mapped?

P.J.: Yes; the globe should show up next to any recognizable city name, and that location should show a google map when the globe is clicked.

I think it works for national parks, monuments, and other POIs too.

It doesn't seem to be working in my older posts, but it is working in my newer ones.
