Notice: I've taken a part-time job, and it's definitely affecting my blogging time. I'll continue to add content here as often as possible. Pertinent guest posts are always welcome.

NCT Waymark
NCT Waymark

Waymarking is a way to mark unique locations on the planet and give them a voice. While GPS technology allows us to pinpoint any location on the planet, mark the location, and share it with others, Waymarking is the toolset for categorizing and adding unique information for that location. Groundspeak's slogan is "The Language of Location" and our goal is to give people the tools to help others share and discover unique and interesting locations on the planet.

You do not need a GPS unit in order to browse the categories and waymarks on the web site. Sometimes even a postal code is sufficient to find waymarks near your location. Waymarking is like a worldwide scavenger hunt, without the boxes and prizes of geocaching or letterboxing.
