First Arusha hotel on Google Maps via MapMyName

Twee Portugese studenten, João Ribeiro en Sérgio Veiga, die de opleiding “Computer Engineering & Telematica” volgen aan de Universiteit van Aveiro zijn sinds Earth Day (22 april) een ambitieus project gestart, genaamd MapMyName. Hun missie: het in kaart brengen (realtime) van alle internetters op deze wereld, middels een Google Maps mashup. Ondanks het feit dat dit een onmogelijke taak lijkt, beweren de 2 studenten dat het theoretisch mogelijk is binnen een maand!
Onsea House in Arusha is wellicht 1 van de eerste hotels of guesthouses ter wereld en de allereerste naam in Tanzania die geregistreerd is op de MapMyName site.

Via ons profiel als Hospitality/Travel adres, hopen we binnenkort onze eerste gasten op safari in Tanzania te mogen verwelkomen die ons via MapMyName ontdekt hebben.
Onsea House is via MapMyName zichtbaar op de Google DigitalGlobe satelliet kaart midden in het groen op Namasi Hill tussen het dicht bebouwde Arusha en Lake Duluti in.
