Interactive Mapping of US Observatories, Planetariums and Astronomy Clubs
I am writing to let people know that MapMuse.com has added
nationwide maps of Observatories, Planeteriums and Astronomy Clubs
to its services. Following is the link to the Astronomy Directory,
which has the links to the topical maps:
The idea is for astronomy enthusiasts to build upon what we have
started by correcting/editing and adding observatories,
planetariums, and astronomy clubs to the maps themselves (currently
we have over 175 observatories, 125 planeteriums and 115 astronomy
clubs listed on our maps). Please note that descriptive information,
as well as photos can be added to the profiles by our visitors.
There is an ADD and EDIT feature on the site. Through this kind of
community effort, we hope to have the most comprehensive, and
descriptive maps for astronomy enthusiasts to use at home, and on
their travels. We would appreciate if you would participate in the
process, by checking if your local observatories, planetariums, and
clubs are mapped, enhancing information as you see fit, and adding
places and clubs that we missed. Also, if you find these maps
useful, please pass the word on to like-minded friends.
Lastly, if you have an astronomy related website, we would
appreciate a link.
