I decided to create the ultimate manhole covers site on the morning walk where I've noticed the assortment of manhole covers: Sewerage (naturally), water, communication, lightning and more, the shape, size and different writing on each cover.
In this site you can find manhole covers from around the world, from different categories where each cover has a details description, its geo-location and more.
In addition to the cover image there are many other details, such as: its purpose, location, its builder and more.
"Bug" category is a special category that marks covers that are placed in the wrong city, has typos etc. You can reach all the covers in that category by clicking on list of all covers that belong to the bug category
The search feature of the site let you find covers according to many criteria: city, country, shape, category, builder and more.
You can also search for an address or a word(s) that appears in the name, description or comments of the cover. Please note that when the search phrase contains more than one word the search results are covers where those words appear together and not separately), i.e a search for "street management" will match only for covers that contain that exact combination and will not match "street of London by the management".
You can narrow the search results by clicking on the Click for advance search
button in the search box. A set of more search options will appear that will narrow the results set. For example clicking on shape: Elliptical, category: water. city: Tel Aviv will return all the covers that are from the water category are in Tel Aviv with eliptical shape.
Another option to reach the search results is via the page Cover's details
. Clicking on one of the cover's category will return all the covers from that category.
- Allow cover images to be supplied by users.
- The ability to display the covers around your current location in the covers' map, real time update of your current location (especially for cellular browsing).
