Here’s a little Friday fun. It can be frustrating to land on a 404 page when you’re looking for critical information on the Internet. Many companies add a little fun to those “page not found” errors. Here is a roundup to see which of the more popular GIS sites have humorous 404 pages.
If you have a suggestion for a site that needs to be included here, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
GIS Stack Exchange
A busted up compass greets visitors to the 404 page on the GIS Stack Exchange site:
Users trying to access non existent pages on Directions Magazine are taken to a map showing 404 as a location in Bummerville, California.
Esri’s 404 is a little more mundane with a traffic hazard sign over a small map.
Lastly, here’s the 404 page for GIS Lounge.
Thanks for Jill Clark for the inspiration.
