If only I have this during my Seoul trip, then I can tell you guys where exactly I am… well, almost. However, it seemed a little difficult to find where the roads are in Seoul via Microsoft Virtual Earth, so I thought I’d do something simpler – finding Pedra Branca.

As it turned out, it wasn’t that easy to find Pedra Branca either! So, you’d have to use a little bit of imagination. Do you see the words “Kampung sungai Rengit” and “Lagoi”? Well, the island is supposed to be somewhere between those words.

Perhaps the next plug-in that people should write is to help label the map. =)

Of course, this is the Aerial version, which basically shows what the satellites capture. If you want something crisp, you can try the Road-only version, which should look something like this:

There you have it! Hmm… so, if you haven’t downloaded WLW yet, do have a try. You do not necessarily need to post to your blog, but you can just play around with it without saving drafts.

And oh, did I mention that you can also select which category you want to post to? The toolbar may not be visible by default, so you’d have to click on View and then Properties. There should be a new toolbar at the bottom of the window.

Have fun!

    Did you know you that when inserting/modifying the map in Windows Live Writer, you can right-click on the map to add a pushpin? Not exactly the same as adding a label to the map, but it’s better than saying “the island is supposed to be somewhere between those words” šŸ™‚

    @Joe Cheng: Hey, thanks for dropping by =) I tried doing that earlier, and while the pin did seem to stay after entering some information, it disappeared after I clicked Insert. I’m not sure if this works like Google Earth, but the pin is no longer there when I do an Insert Map again. šŸ˜‰
