Website of the Day: Visited Countries


Thanks goodness for Phasekitty, without whom I might never have found the website of the day: Visited Countries.

A sister site to Visited States, Visited Countries is a small project that aims to prove the "power of manipulating the palette of a gif image on the fly." You start with a map of the world with each country in a different color. The script asks which country you have been to and sets the colors of those countries to red, the rest to green. It's a geeky but entertaining way to look at where you've traveled in the world and might inspire you to plan a special geek vacation.
