New Google Maps tool: Locate your favorite websites!
Whereis is a Google Maps tool which allows you to locate where in the world a specific Internet server is sitting. This could be a website URL; eg: http://www.cnn.com or http://news.bbc.co.uk or a mail server address like mail.yourisp.com. Try any website or server address and see where that physical server is currently accepting requests from. It gives you new appreciation for the power of the Internet by showing you the distance your web requests must travel to display pictures and text in your web browser..
