MEM Member Map
« on: April 08, 2014, 01:13:11 PM »
The Bridgeport forum started using this site for its member map.
Never being one to avoid stealing a good idea,  I thought we could give it a try.

Here's the link

https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=923270&add=1

Click on "additions" in the top menu and "Add Marker - Simple". The more detailed the location you type in, the closer to your location the pin wiill drop. It can be relocated, if necessary, by clicking on your pin and using the 2d icon at the bottom right of the "pin info" block.

I've added my pin to get us started. I'm going to have my iPad at the MEM table. We'll watch for pins to appear.

Added myself now also. So how are we going to keep this assessable to the membership?

Jo - I don't know how accurate yours is, but I just spent the weekend half way between Alton and Selbourne.

I don't live in the middle of the pond where I positioned the marker ;) but it is within 10 miles of the house.

You could have dropped in  :shrug:.

call me a grumpy old man  :old: but I think I will refrain thats a little bit to much info to be placed on line linked to pics we have all put up as to the contents of the WS ect.

I am happy to give a general location in the sig but not down to the level that map can and does give

I would have thought that if all the members gave there country and town that would be enough to enable answers that are geographic related e.g. electrical and boiler codes to quote a couple

Hi Stuart,
I agree with you on exact address.  I just did city.  So my pin isn't where I live.  Its just at the center of the city.

I think a lot of people are doing that.
