INTERACTIVE MAPS AND CALENDARS

One way to get your website noticed is to add the location of your business or club onto maps and to publicise special events on calendars.

Maps and calendars are browsed by people on the Internet, but also on mobile phones and on the GPS in cars etc. There are many maps already set up to find restaurants or tourist destinations. It is also possible to start your own map or join a group with similar interests to have your location advertised with pictures, description and a direct link to your website. 

Here is an example of a map showing Multisport and Adventure Racing events in New Zealand and Australia (use navigation buttons and check out how each event on the map has extended information, linked to its website):

And another example of a map: Radio Yachting New Zealand

It is also possible to view maps and tours in 3-D movies using Google Earth

You can have calendars on your website with events, which can be maintained by your webmaster (maybe us), by yourself or by others. Below is an example of a calendar associated with the Eventmap above. The calendar also has extended information for each event. Click on an event to view this. In the info-box is an option to copy the event to your personal calendar. Also check out the Scrolling, Agenda and Print options.

Both the Google map and calendar are updated outside this website and can be included in your own website, if required. You can subscribe (free of charge) to the calendar via Google, together with other calendars and info such as weather and public holidays. The information can also be automatically updating calendars on your PC (such as in Microsoft Outlook) or in your mobile phone. For more information contact us or read our:
