New Feature: Location DB Map -- ALL locations

Hi everyone,

Using a new clustering tool I found, I was able to build a dynamic Google Map that shows all locations in the UER location database.

http://www.uer.ca/locations/gmaps/

Click on the "clusters" to zoom in.

Enjoy!

Thanks, that's a nice update.

Will UER ever have a link to the maps (e.g. via the DB search page) or will people still have to remember the link or search forum posts to find it? I ask because I can no longer count the times I've wanted to look at the maps, but forgot the link to it.

I can see this being abused - cue 'locations clustered to look like cocks' in 3,2,1....



We all had ostriches. My dad had an ostrich farm! I remember one day someone came in and said the high altitude bombing of Kosovo had been a limited success, so we all went out and celebrated… by killing an ostrich and boiling it in kiwi fruit.

It's a great feature, but I think that it needs a little work, due in large part to the fact that, despite being listed as being in Toronto, the marker for the SkyDome/Rogers Centre is sitting on the southwestern quarter of Grand Island, NY, which is a nearly two hour drive to the south.

Awesome setup Av, nice work =)

I know, but, the Rogers Centre? That's not exactly some super secret ninja elite location.

In this case, it's likely someone just clicked on the "Toronto" icon on the map when it was zoomed out all the way, resulting in the marker being placed in the general vicinity of Toronto, but not anywhere near the real location.

Is there a link to this in the database somewhere?
