We have launched an interactive world atlas with travel guide and nature guide, where information on world heritage, ecotourism and geography can be seen on map. Okapiland Map is a web 2.0 application, and provides a new type of world travel navigation.

Please see the map and sites in Argentina. Grateful if you would advise me other sites which should be added.

It is not working for me. I can see Africa but when I tried to go to South America it refused repeatedly to go there. Finally did get to that part of the world but the picture cut off below around the middle of Mexico. Below that nothing. At the bottom it says error on the page. I read the Help page, then tried repeatedly with no luck.

It is working fine with no frustration in my test environment as following.

OS: ME, 2000, XP.
network: 1.5MB.

I like the Okapiland map, good idea and I'm sure it is useful.

Speaking about maps, anybody has an idea of why Google Maps doesn't map Argentina? Names of cities, streets and other geographical points stop at the Uruguayan and Brazilian frontier; Argentina is just a white surface.

Is there some kind of conflict between Google and the Argentinian authorities?

I doubt it, becuase Google just opened their first Latin American office in BA about last week or so, and Cristina was there to cut the ribbon.

What is more likley, is that since things move slower here, it is just a matter of time before very nice street mapping suddenly appears one day in google maps.

I have always thought that Argentina just doesn't fall into the scope of most of the satellites, Argentina being far from a risk to international security.
