The Pi defaults to setting its clock from NTP servers. On the whole, it probably keeps better time than your watch. It also adjusts between Standard Time and DST automatically (a feature I dearly love with the Pi I use as an alarm clock).tbd.pi wrote:You mean you want to serve this, or just access a map that looks like that on the pi? Creating one of those maps isn't a pi specific problem, although you will have to look at how you sync the clock on the pi (I've not needed to do that yet) as it doesn't have a RTC and wouldn't be accurate unless you set it.
