Visitor map

Stefan has developed a new service that lets you view the last n visitors to vowe.net. I am currently setting n=250, since it seems to set a good balance between performance and number of data points. This is a live service. No caching. Just the bare metal. ;-)

wie auch immer das Ding weiß wo ich wohne. Kann mich jemand aufklären wie man aus 85.178.104.155 meine Koordinaten rausbekommt?

Danke

Wow. Saucool.

Samuel, klickst Du auf Stefan und liest dort die Kommentare.

Very cool indeed. Has this been custom made for you, or is it going to be available in a form that can be used by many people?

Jeroen Sangers, 2005-08-23

Seems to be struggling with me though, no dot to be seen anywhere near Swindon. But then hostip.info says they can't resolve my IP.

It has been designed to work with more than one site. vowe.net is only the second. But I cannot comment on Stefan's plan to make it available elsewhere. Try gvisit.com to see your last 20 visitors. Or pay them to show you 50.

this looks cool, thanks for the info

Very very cool - instead of looking at the numbers, you get the pretty picture !

Hopefully it will be released for usage by other people ? Me want !

Does it drop all the bots that come visit the sites (msn bot, yahoo search bot, google bot, jp bot) ? I don't think they should really count as a person...

Alex Boschmans, 2005-08-24

Alex: No, it won't drop the bots. The reason is that it was designed with speed in mind. Once I start messing with evaluation of the Client ID and other stuff, it will get get bloated and I don't like that. I do agree that "visitor map" may be a misleading name for it actually is a "hit map". Having said that I have to admit that I actually like to be able to detect an increased activity from unusual places. As for the "usage by other people": why don't you just ask the author? Makes me wonder, though, what you need it for. The site linked with your name doesn't seem to be connected.

Bot don't execute Javascript. So, you are not recording them.

Volker Weber, 2005-08-24

It's not a matter of executing it. The question is whether a bot will follow the link and try to open the file. As you can see it's not a JavaScript at all but a PHP script instead. The advantage of calling it via a forged Javascript statement is that the browser won't expect to get back an image as is the case with forged IMG tags.
