Determining Qibla Direction with Google Map

One of the ‘long forgotten’ project in my site is the Qibla Pointer. I just visited this page and updated the script to allow automatic detection of the visitor’s location. Now, if you visit the site, the default Google map will reflect your current position. It may not precisely determined your city since it depends on database service that does not cover all visitor’s IP and their coresponding geographic locations. And if the page cannot determine your location it will display the location of the Holy Mosque, Ka’bah in Makkah.

I hope this will make finding the qibla direction easier and more interactive.
