MySQL Geospatial extensions (You don't have to be geeky to think it's neat, but it helps)

Check out what I've been messing with this weekend

That's one level of zoom far enough out where nothing shows up. Hit zoom in once to start seeing stuff.

This contains the location of almost every telephone central office switch in the country.

You can pan it around, zoom in and out. This is a few hours of mock up to get a decent vision of what's in the database. I plan on completely rewriting it because it sucks. I'm getting better data as we speak to draw all the streets, and a bunch of other crap.

Can you all see where I'm going with this?

Amazing what I can get done when livejournal's down…
