I am new here and believe it is important for our community to have a member map. I understand we had one and no longer do. With this being said Have we looked at batchgeo.com? I understand that this would take some time to get the initial map up and running because it is not "individual user entry" But if we can embed this map onto this site, I would be willing to do the entry part of the map and send it to whoever would need it. Yes that would mean entering thousands of users into excel but I would like to contribute somehow. Members would have to Email me their information.
Even if we could not embed it into the site we could post a link to it somewhere. After the initial build adding addresses I don't think would be that difficult if it were done say once a week or whatever depending on the amount of new addresses needed to be entered.
This also has a locator function so users could enter there location and find the closest ones to them. Plus the fields can be changed to our needs say name, address, type of display, amount of lights, etc.
Again, I would be willing to do all the data entry to make this happen. Please let me know what we think. If this would be a go I would be willing to start asap with the map to get it going as fast as we can.
Here is an Example of 4 locations I put on a map just for show.
PLEASE.. let me know what we think.. I would like to do my part for the Do it Yourself Community.
I don't know if everyone would agree or not but as far as entering the locations I would think we should post that we would do this and have members notify if they want their location on a map instead of using outdated information. This way it would be current to the users and the locations listed would be of those that still have displays.
