How to create Joomla Visitor Map
Joomla Visitor Map is a Joomla! 1.5 module which displays a geographical map of recent visitors to your site. It uses Google Maps to display markers on the geo location of the visitors. This module is a fork for Joomla 1.5 of the module Geo Visitors for Joomla 1.0
Although DART Creations have added some features and tweaks to the module, all credit for the module goes to Ismail Faiz from http://www.freelance-park.com/joomla/
