Thought I'd bump this as there have been many new members the last few months that have not been added or might like to go on the map;

Where in the World Are You

Best,

Thanks...

If you check the map, you can see where everyone is... It does have a listing of individuals on the left side (or mine does)... But there's no easy way of alphabetizing it.

If you give me a more specific are, other than like Southern California, I can drop a pin close. Otherwise it just leaves me thinking San Diego or simlar.

My original intend with the was to make it easier to find others on the H&N Forum located in your area.

For support, to communicate, or just for information only.

To Be Golden, I thought you were on here from past postings (Everett)...I'll double check.

Hey Vicki, it's pretty easy to make one on Google Maps. It just takes a little time initially upfront gathering eveyrone's information.

There's not an easy way to just collect all ofthe data and dump it in...that I have found anyways.

There may be something easier to do it in also...

With mine it's hard to find where someone specifically lives becasue there is no directory that I'm aware. there might be a search feature where you can put in a name (like Skiffin16) and it'll point you...not sure.

And once you start it and add to it doesn't re-alphabetize.

But knowing your area, you can easily see other members close to you.

there is a way to import data to Google Maps, but probably not worth it for this.
you can maintain data in Excel, dump to a KML file, and import--but you need to use lat/long coordinates in the Excel file. too much precision, lol.

the data listing on the left only appears for collaborators, I believe.

That's what I was referring....

I know you can dump it in from Excel, but once you add any updates, it's out of order again... I beleive that the only way to update (and sort it again), you'd have to compile everything, sort ot and dump it again...only you might have to make a new map each time....

Either way a lot of work..., this serves the main purpose I intended.

Thanks for the imput though...

And yes, I figured that I was the only one that could view the names on the points.

I have a few of the KML's for fishing...., it lists Florida Ramps mainly...

right, to keep it sorted one would presumably add updates in Excel and rebuild the map each time.
since all the map data (including names, descriptions, icons, icon colors...) is in the Excel file, rebuilding = importing. building the map would be the easy part.

but it's all academic, because who is their right mind would want to use lat/long data?
oh well.

Billie, it's really cool in Google Earth, as it displays all of the names without having click on them.

No, really, when I first signed on I tried my initials and they were taken so I plugged in my husband's initials, hwt. I think I was just intending to take a "look see" so my posting name didn't seem important at the time. I am not very computer literate. I'm just happy I did find my way to this site got on. I admire people, like you, that know their way around the computer.

When it opens, you shoild be able to switch views (top right of map).

You can switch it from Google Map (or Satellite), to Google Earth.

Not sure if it works on the iPad or not.

I don't think it works in the Earth within Google.... I do know that in Earth it works with the labels.

wow, blackswampboy, I was actually very touched by you mentioning Anže Kopitar :)). It's good to be recognized out in the world... Yes, my country is beautiful, but aren't they all? :))
It is small but has everything: sea, mountains, hills and valleys, wonderful forests, castles and churches, lakes...

It is great to meet such wonderful people in this board! Let the health be our connection not only the desease.

Thanks John !
Lots of little pins everywhere ! Would love to see them all disappear due to a cure. I'm in a small rural community Browerville, Minnesota. But will be relocating up north east of here to the Brainard lakes area in the next year. Beautiful here too ! Katie
