GeoURL 2.0 beta launches
Welcome to GeoURL 2.0, thanks for visiting!
What in tarnation is this thing!?
GeoURL maps geographic locations to websites letting you lookup websites near a location or near another website. It's great fun. If you haven't tried already, then go to the front page and click on a location on the map.
This looks a lot like something I've seen before ...
Yes, indeed! This is a relaunch (and re-implementation) of the original GeoURL site that was invented and built by Joshua Schachter (of del.icio.us fame). All the old URLs should work. If not, please send me a mail.
Why is it called beta?
Because we haven't tested it very much; and because there are still features missing that we are planning to add.
Why can't I zoom in on the map?
See "beta" above, we are working on it! And a bunch of other features; it's all very exciting. I haven't had time to work on the site since last weekend, so I decided that it'd be more fun to just get it released than to wait forever to get time to add Just One More Feature.
I have a suggestion! I want to help!
Drop us a mail; we ♥ suggestions!
Who are "we"?
Ask Bjørn Hansen made this and he likes to think that he's several people sometimes.

Kilometers, oh my.... Um, any chance of seeing a pref to view distances in miles?

Thank you (or whoever updated the program) to lump all the repeat domains together. deviantArt is nice, but it sure was getting old seeing SO MANY of them with the older version.

Thanks for all the comments!
Pete, yes -- it's on the list. :-) Until then just multiply by 1.5 and you are pretty close.
Sherri, glad you like the "folding" features I've added. (Still working on making them more sophisticated too!)
