Qlock.com: Ajax-enhanced World Map

Category: Mapping, Showcase

Qlock.com offers up a handy tool for those trying to figure out what time it is in what part of the world – a fully interactive, Ajax-enabled map of the world that shows the time where your pointer is.

Sometimes, it’s the simplest ideas that are most effective, and this tool does what it does well. Not only can you move the mouse over a given spot to see the time for the area (which includes the time zone it’s in), but you can also type in a city name below the map (using a Google Sugest kind of aid) to locate a custom city of your choice.

The map allows even more control to your hunt by letting you switch from the Day/Night version of the map over to a Google Maps integration letting you zoom/move around/swtich views all you want to locate the city/area of your choice.

Very nice tool, I think it just replaced timeanddate.com for me. I only wish they’d lose the annoying popup and show the hovered city in a separate status area.
