Gurdwara Map Details
Have you ever travelled to a city and wondered if there was a Gurdwara in the area? The SikhNet team has been working on a cool new project, with the help of Ad.WRIGHT. This is an exciting new service which will enable you to visually find Gurdwaras all around the world. You can search for locations and also add your own Gurdwara to the map too.
Currently there is only a small subset of Gurdwaras listed, so we hope that you will check it out and add your Gurdwara to the map. All you need to do is register on SikhiWiki and then you can zoom in/or search to find your Gurdwara location.
To add a Gurdwara, once you have zoomed in (at least to level 3) and found the exact location of your Gurdwara on the map, just click on the spot, and a form will display. The form will allow you to enter some basic information about the Gurdwara. Once you have completed this simple form just click on the "submit" button and your Gurdwara will appear on the map as a Nishan Sahib. It's that simple!
You can switch between "Map" mode, which just shows streets, cities, and road names, to "Satellite" mode which shows you actual satellite images of the world. You can also do the "Hybrid" version which will show both at the same time. This gives you both the satellite image and the maps information superimposed one on the other. It makes the whole experience of navigation a lot more interesting!!
We have a lot of good ideas for expanding this. We plan to setup this system in a way that anyone can create a map on SikhiWiki for a variety of purposes. You could have a map of all the Sikh camps, Kirtan Samagams, all your friends, Aunties who will feed you food, Historical locations, etc. It's really up to your imagination.
So help us expand this project by entering your Gurdwara and letting us know what you think about the project. We really want to make it a useful service and need your help.
