You don't have to wait for the daily scan anymore: you can use this form to scan just your home itself.

Update: Pity google maps isn't much of a help in this case, because it doesn't have even a low-scale map of your country.

    Thank you, ambrus. I was on the form before, and it got it wrong because, well, because I had no that lat/long tag yet. Fortunately you remind me about it :-) Due to careless copy/paste under excitement, I fed the scanner with:
    <!-- Location:latitude=-006.36.58,longitude=1 +06.48.58-->
    It gave me,
    Argument "1+06" isn't numeric in abs at /home/system/perlmonks/monkmapper.pl line 839.
    Node 607636 has a valid location tag (latitude=-006.36.58,longitude=1 +06.48.58)
    
    This is only a warning, but I think it can be useful to jcwren or someone maintains the script.

    Anyway, that wrong input let BigMonkMap put me on the middle of nowhere around Atlantic Ocean. And I guess it was about 20-30 dots away from one of African coasts. But now, I can tell my kids that their dad's on the map. A special map that is one of its kind. And somehow it makes me really think that I'm really nothing but a single red dot .....

    Well, shall we?
