Suncoast Member Map Finished
The Suncoast Member mashup map is finished. Several people commented how cool it is.
You can create a mashup map in 5 minutes from http://www.batchgeocode.com/, and there are Google plugins for WordPress that also facilitate the map. But I used the Google Map API because I wanted a list of scrollable names on the side. The method was much more arduous (right-click the map file to view the source and see the code for the individual markers).
I'm not entirely sure what the map tells us. I introduced the map along with a date for a member chat. I'm hoping the map will give more context to the remotely located chatters. If nothing else, it's interesting to see where everyone is located.
