Pin Layouts for Raspberry Pi and hats

There is a great site out there, which collects GPIO layouts, and further adds an amazing amount of Pin layouts for Hats from multiple vendors: Pinout. Apart from the Pin Layout scheme, you can also click on a pin to get more detailed overviews and extra data. This site is a must when you build stuff.

Recently, you can navigate visually on Pinout using their brand new Board Explorer. Navigate visually to see which hat uses which GPIO pins and even to find out compatibility across some hats. Awesome!
