Revamped Countries, Regions and Towns With Imagery

We recently updated the way in which we output country, region and town content.

The world’s a huge place and organising the many different towns and regions and counties isn’t always easy. We didn’t like aspects of our old structure so where appropriate we’ve moved old pages to a new cleaner, leaner, more efficient system.

A good example of this can be seen here

http://www.distance-calculator.co.uk/sacramento-california-united_states.htm

Distance Calculator > North America Distance Calculator > United States > Pennsylvania > Sacramento Distances

Apparently, there are 3 Sacramentos in the USA and many other states also have lots of towns with names that are identical.

You’ll find now that where other places with similar names exist, that these will be highlighted on the page.

Did you mean a different Sacramento? Sacramento in California – Sacramento in Kentucky – Sacramento in New Mexico

We are now adding Panoramio user images too. Here’s an example from the Sacramento California page.

Sacramento Area Pictures and Photos (3-4 mile radius) >> Follow Distance Calculator

We hope users enjoy the new layout and like the new navigation trails, associated imagery, real time visuals and maps.

Real Time Data Visuals and Maps

Map Visualisation Using Geo Charting

We’re always looking for ways to add value to what we do and go above and beyond the standard way of just spitting out numbers from A to B. You may have noticed that we already create lots of representations relative to fuel costs and driving times for example, the radius around an area, places, geo location tools that detect where you are and enable for the calculation of a distance to a place, nearest beaches, train stations, places of interest as well as maps and directions.

We haven’t done much with ‘the now’ so decided to try and come up with something to change that. After a little thought and a change or two in the architecture of the site we now incorporate the way in which users use our site to create real time functional representations of the actions of site visitors.

Image

You can see an example of this in action here whereby you’ll see data relative to how many times a page has been viewed in any given day with various plots of the map. We think it’s a great little visual addition that gives a little extra depth to the visitor experience.

We basically track (anonymised data) every page view made by a human visitor and update the stats in real time.

Over time, we hope to be able to show some really cool patterns relative to how people use the tools provided!

Watch this space!

New Blog Focus

So, we used to use this blog to push out our Q and A’s to the wider WP community. Due to various on site improvements we no longer get so many of those and tools like Twitter and FB have enabled us to directly engage with our audience a little more meaning that this blog here for example, became a little quiet!

That said, we do want to shout about some of the cooler things we’ve been up to and share with the WP community so to that end, watch this space!
