7. Add to Rastrack

Rastrack was setup by enthusiast Ryan Walmsley in 2012 as a way of tracking where people are using Raspberry Pi’s around the world. The site is a user-contributed Google Map to which Pi users in the community have added their location; it shows a heat map of where Pi users are known to be around the world.

Rastrack (http://rastrack.co.uk) is a website run by Ryan Walmsley for tracking where people are using Raspberry Pis around the World. If you have an internet connection, you can add yourself directly using this tool. This is just a bit of fun, not any sort of official registration.

You can use this option to add your location to the map.

Rastrack is disabled by default.

  1. I’m in the process of installing UniFi on a RasPi but will go to bed now (after 1AM) and finish tomorrow. Later I want to install it on an OrangePiPC if I can.
    Thanks for the info 🙂
