I already wrote several times about the free software tools that give you statistics about your audience. One of these tools is StatCounter which has recently added a new feature to its already long list. You can now view your recent visitors on a Google Map. It is quite ironic that Google Analytics also offers you to see where your visitors come from (here is an example), but not on a Google map.

Below is an example of such a map showing where the recent visitors to one of my other blogs came from.

Recent visitors on a Google Map

As far as I know, there are no options to generate such a map. I have no idea if the above map represents the visitors who came during the last hour, day or week. But I guess that some optional controls will soon be added.

As this is a Google map, it is fully clickable. Just click on a marker and StatCounter will give you all the details about a particular visitor. So another desirable option would be to only display a fixed number of visitors, such as the last 100 visitors.

But overall, this is a nice addition to an already great package. If you don't have already a web tracking tool installed on your blog, try StatCounter and you'll be happy.
