The InterMap is a system for defining links between WikiWikiWeb sites that was first developed by UseMod:UseModWiki and Meatball:MeatballWiki. Inter Map links have the form MapPrefix:Page, where the host prefix is converted to a partial URL based on entries in the site's intermap.txt and localmap.txt files.

The default intermap.txt distributed with Pm Wiki (in the scripts/ directory) includes the following Inter Map entries:

    PmWiki:         http://www.pmwiki.org/pmwiki2/pmwiki.php/
Cookbook:       http://www.pmwiki.org/pmwiki2/pmwiki.php/Cookbook/
Wiki:           http://www.c2.com/cgi/wiki?
UseMod:         http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?
Meatball:       http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?
Wikipedia:      http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/
Path:           

Thus, PmWiki:Variables becomes a link to the Pm Wiki.Variables page on the official Pm Wiki web site, Wiki:FrontPage is a link to the front page of the first Wiki Wiki Web, and Wikipedia:Stonehenge takes you to the Wikipedia article about the famous megaliths in England.

The special Path: Inter Map entry can be used to create "relative urls" in links.

The actual set of Inter Map links at any site is defined by the site administrator; for more details, see PmWiki.CustomInterMaps.
