A new feature is currently being added to the article pages of the World Cruising Wiki.

Co-ordinates are being added in "GPS" format and these co-ordinates are formatted as a link which when clicked, takes you to a page of Geo resources where you can get local photos, chartlets, etc., or go direct to Google Earth, etc., for these co-ordinates. (Wiki editors see the Wiki's "Help" section for the 'co-ordinates" template)

A good example of this feature can be seen in the SAMOS section within the Wiki's Greece cruising guide.

The Cruising Wiki is growing very quickly - this World Cruising Guide already has almost 5,000 pages and to date has had almost a half-million page views.

LOTS of input is still required, so bring out the hidden "Cruising Guide Writer" in you and add what you can for the benifit of all cruisers who will follow in your wake - share the information on passages, world ports, immigration and customs formalities around the world, approaches, marinas, anchorages, etc., in the true cruiser's spirit of sharing information.

GRAB A PAGE AND BUILD IT!

It is lots of fun and it does feel good to share your knowledge and experience with fellow cruisers. So, please do roll up your sleeves and help us make the CL Wiki the best on-line cruising guide.

Thanks for all your work on the wiki, Istioploos! You're quite an inspiration to those of us who are a little "wiki edit challenged"
