…What was most interesting is that as I was discovering this whole WorldMaps/ClustrMaps thing this guy from inside Microsoft was talking about WorldMaps on one of the internal aliases. So, I emailed him and said, "DUDE! You’re Microsoft. Why don’t you use Virtual Earth maps?!?" Well, that was a good idea so he did it. And, now WorldMaps is available in both his static map and Virtual Earth map views. Money.
That "he" is Brian Hitney, a Microsoft Developer Evangelist out of North Carolina who runs the Structure Too Big site. The service is free to sign up and all you need to do is drop a little map image (some HTML) on your page and his service will track all of the IPs requesting the image and produce a report for you.
WorldMaps 是由微软 Developer Evangelist Brian Hitney 开发的，该服务完全免费，大家可以在自己的博客上添加它，它会自动跟踪所有的 IP 请求，并给出报告。Chris Pendleton 给他发了邮件，建议他采用微软的 Virtual Earth，很快，WorldMaps 就支持 Virtual Earth 了。
