Webcams: new feature

Originally published: 24 May 2005
World66, the travel guide you write, continues improving! We've recently added a nice and helpful Webcam feature, which means that you can now log on to interesting local scenery displays, broadcasted by selected quality webcams in a growing number of travellers locations.
Webcams may also supply precious information on actual weather conditions.
And as usual, if you know of relevant cams for travellers, anywhere in the world, you can of course add them to World66, using the new [Add Section > Webcams] input screen.
Curious? Hurry to the cams below to get the picture of this new feature. Enjoy!
Montreal in Canada (7 cams, Old Montreal recommended)
Hurtigruten coastal liner in Norway (cams on board of 2 ships)
Galicia region in Spain (14 cams)
Wadden island beach in The Netherlands.

Export mapsonomy maps

It's a small link, but with big consequences. On every page of mapsonomy you can find a link saying "this map on your site". This also works for maps that are updated using rss, like the BBC news world map. I copy pasted that one to my personal blog and I quite like it.
