eGrupos , an online social networking site based in Sunnyvale, California has developed El BlogoMapa Hispano , an online directory of weblogs in Spanish, which shows the bloggers’ locations using the Google Maps API. If you have a weblog written in Spanish and it is not included on the map, you may submit it . There is also a plugin  for Google Earth .
This is an exciting addition to other efforts of mapping out bloggers by location. Gustavo Diaz Salazar  of Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico has made a similar blog map which focuses on Mexico . GeoURL  is probably the most well known and largest database of bloggers’ locations and offers RSS feeds of new blogs in specific regions . Mikel Maron, who has created a free Google Maps-alternative for making blog maps , developed The World as a Blog , which synidacates feeds based on location in real time. Blogwise is also trying to collect geo data to map out bloggers  and Chandu Thota  is hard at work on feedmap , which so far, organizes blogs using tags  and offers local blogrolls based on location .
These are great visual tools to explore other countries and cultures without ever leaving your laptop.
