The goal of the WorldWide Lighthouse Picture Project
is to collect a picture and description of every lighthouse
in the world by setting up and linking many regional sites.

- a picture of every lighthouse,
- with a standard description,
- and a www structure to make everything easily accessible.

with a common core format and link 'em all together.
This is not a commercial project.

Sponsors will be given due credit, of course.
