A map of lighthouses, colours and blink rates reflect their real clours and blink rates. I'm not sure how complete it is, but the lighthouse on Lake Winnipeg made me chuckle.

looks like some of the bad data in the Open Street Maps database  will get cleaned up from people complaining about how their favorite local lighthouse is wrongly shown.'

I noticed my most nearby lighthouse was not represented, so I went to OSM to add it. But it is already there (of course, because the Dutch love OSM). Maybe this is filtered out, but it seems the Overpass API should be returning this:

It looks like the issue is that the light sequence is expressed as text in the description field, rather than in the seamark:light:sequence field (as it is in e.g., Gilkicker Point).

Someone tell Norway that Christmas is over and it's time to take down the lights.

Looks like a bedazzled penis.

Yeah, I know there are a lot more lighthouses along the US east coast than that map indicates.  At least a dozen just off the coast of Maine, probably more.
