Plazes is still in beta, but today i just noticed they launched a new website with a whole lot of new features.

Plazes Re-Design

For those who might not know plazes yet, Plazes is a geo-reference serviced based on ip, meaning that you don’t need to have a gps for pin-pointing your location on the web, you can just trust on the connection points that you hang to (to be more precise, it uses the mac-address of the router you’re connected to, to save your location at plazes). If the “plaze” is unknown plazes asks you about details on that particular location, otherwise it just saves your locations based on the information others have submitted on that precise location!

Here’s where I am right now:

Rather nice, don’t you think?
