Geograph Announcements

New Mapping Interface available

Anybody following the 'In Development' threads in the forum, may already be aware, but thought would post this as a standalone item.

1) The mapping interface intergrated into the image 'Browser' application, has been completely revamped,
2) and a new interactive coverage map (currently only linked from top of the current map via 'Maps' in sidebar),
3) also very similar map available from the mobile homepage at
4) also its been used for a while for Ireland photo pages and grid-squares.

The eventual aim is to replace most of the mapping around the site (we still have over 5 distinct systems running which adds a lot of complexity and server overheads) - but it's a long term project (months from completion!).

Geograph finances

Normally each year just before Christmas I make an appeal for funds which is principally aimed at contributors. If you recall last year it was “Christmas is near, give Geograph a present”

Earlier this year, in March, we ran a ‘Wiki style’ appeal which was mainly aimed at visitors to the site although many contributors made donations.

From Tuesday 16th October we will be running another ‘Wiki style’ appeal which is aimed at both contributors and visitors. There will not be a separate Christmas appeal to contributors.

In addition to the normal operational running costs, Geograph needs to raise sufficient funds to enable a move to the Cloud. A move to the Cloud could reduce our running costs. However much of the code would need to be re-written and funds would be required to achieve this re-writing.

So please give generously and let’s keep this wonderful project running and improving.

Remember too that you can support Geograph by way of Amazon Smile and Give as you Live.
