3D Maps, Blog, IP-based Location

Clearing the garage I found this article from CNet in the "read later" pile. It points to Croquet, a 3D Open Source development framework and to the possible ways the metaverse world can come to light to augment reality, wow.

Tracking down the article I looked up "3D maps" and came across 3pointD.com which got enough stimulus to blow quite a few neurons around the room.

Among the cool stuff 3pointD.com has been talking about, there was the IP-based Geolocation work from James Coster. It uses IP2Location as its IP database. But as James mentioned in the page where he explains his work in great detail, the precision is a bit off but a pretty interesting approach, nonethless.
