Map of ETSA members – Where do you live?

Post by zany »

is there a way we can put all our ETSA members locations (for those that provided them) on a pretty map?

i don't really NEED to see this, it just sorta came to me that it would be cool to see where the ETSA fans are located graphically (as in maybe it would encourage the band to play in more of the areas of this site's fans! not that i'm particularly complaining i'm very happy with the frequency they come to CT!)

it's probably a pain since people could type what they want and not in any standard format either. oh well. :)

p.s. i miss all my ETSA friends!! been so crazy busy with the baby - will be 1 year in april....

We're always glad to see you back!

I'm pretty sure Google Maps offers facilities for this sort of thing, but I don't have any experience with it myself. There may be alternatives to consider as well. Does anyone else have insight to share?

PS. I moved this to a separate thread.

I remember once upon a time the ojeezitssoulasylum board linked to a map where a lot of us entered our information with a map of 20 or 30 people showing up. It was a pretty cool map, big cluster in mpls, scattering everywhere else. A handful of countries tagged.

Actually I was trying to come across that map a couple months ago. The program was called Frapper; though the link to our map seems to be dead though. :(

Here's the link to the thread though, from back in 2005.

I will happily create a map using Google Maps if there is enough people who would be willing to contribute to such a section. If there are, I think it would be a nice addition if we could possibly have it embedded under the "Other Delights" section of the site where it can be nicely displayed for everyone to see. :)


If you would like to contribute either PM me or post the following in this thread:

Name (or if you just want to use your user name, that's fine)
Location
Some SA related trivia about yourself (how long you been a fan, times you've seen them, favorite SA moment, etc.)
(Picture: If I'm not mistaken it gives you the option to include one, so feel free to attach one with your post or PM.)

So if you're interested in taking part of this, either post here or PM me. :)

(Note: I know a good majority of you have your location in your profile, but I'd feel more comfortable getting your permission than just putting the info in without your consent.)
