The SunInfo Sundial Waymarking Page


'Waymarking' is described by some as a way to mark unique locations on the planet and give them 'a voice'. While GPS technology allows us to pinpoint any location on the planet, mark the location, and share it with others, Waymarking provides the tools for categorizing and adding unique information for that location. So, a waymark is a physical location on the planet marked by its coordinates (latitude/longitude) and which contains unique information defined by what is called its waymark category.

Sundials are a waymark category within and having links to any such allows anyone who might be interested to see the locations and characteristics of sundials right from your armchair!

I - Sundials near Chicago and Detroit USA

Here's our first one which is for those who might be interested in the area between Chicago and Detroit in the USA; at the bottom of the Great Lakes.
Most of the sundials in this area have already been identified and are shown on the map with a little sundial symbol. To see all the dials and pictures of them click here.

Have a go, explore the other pictures of each dial and the information contained there and maybe register yourself with to add some of your own.


There are many more Sundials of the World that are already waymarked.
