A web page hit counter that plots your visitors on a globe.

While reading someone's NASA blog, I came across this neat little widget that plots all of your visitors as points on a revolving globe (or flat static map if you prefer): http://www.revolvermaps.com

It's free to use, and you can select from a variety of options to choose the coloring and style so that it fits into the layout of your website, and it can run using Flash or it will fail-over to Java (or neither if you choose a static map).  I'm sure this isn't entirely new to everyone, as the site has been around for over two years, but it's fairly impressive regardless.  I also gather that it collects visitor information for your site in their own database somewhere (it's not clear from the info available how this is done), so if privacy is a concern for users on your site, you may not want to add this to your site.

I've added a sample below - I imagine the dots will remain fairly sparse for this blog. :)
