Amigamap.com is online

hey guys,

i just wanted to let you know, that a new small Amiga project has started. Well just a website.

tata: http://amigamap.com

Out of a discussion on a1k.org came the idea that it would be helpful to know, how many Amiga computer are still active world wide. The result is now Amigamap.com.

It would be great if you contribute to the project thanks

If you find a bug or have suggestions or whatever. Msg me

M.

Added mine to the list.

Germany is by far the most popular country for Amiga's it seems.

85 in Germany and 17 in UK so far, but no doubt a few more from UK will appear now its on the EAB.

EDIT: 94 in Germany now, of course its always possible someone owns about 50 Amiga's in Germany. :P

EDIT: 102 in Germany....

i will add in the next update, the user count to each country. I know a lot who have 5 to 10 Amigas at home. So we will see this then more detailed.

thanks to all who contribute to the project.

Well you've already got 315 Amiga's registered with your site. Will be nice to know how many are out there.

I imagine almost everyone who owns an Amiga in this decade will be registered with some Amiga community, so after a while it should paint a fairly accurate picture of how the Amiga stands.

Interesting. I added my Amigas and there was 534 in total. Then I left for a lunch and after I returned, the total was already 612. Which means incerasing about 80 in a hour!

@Predseda i will put it on the todo list

thank you so far to everybody who contributed. It gives me energy to invest more of my rare free time. I got a lot of emails in the last 2 days to improve the site.

Also a lot who wants that i extend it to c64 and MorphOS. I have already an idea to implement this, but it will take a bit time (also because i don't want to mix the stats with non-Amiga computers). First i want to finish the account area regarding to the hardware specs and multiple inserts etc.

thanks
Mario

Someone in Tonga owns an Amiga? :P

Theres only around 100,000 people in the whole of Tonga, so I wonder if they hold the title of the only Tongan to own an Amiga.

Nice idea, but what this map needs is a map, like this -

Added mine, come on UK!
