    Apug Community Map!

    I saw this on another site and thought it would be a cool thing for everone too see! The concept is you can mark where in the world you live and put your name and such. I started it off, I put my handle, and in the "shoutout" I put my real name, location, and what formats I generally shoot. Anyway I just though it would be cool to see where everyone else lives visually.

    Heres the site: Apug Community Map

    Cool idea, but it refuses to let me add myself in Southend-on-Sea, even though it is on the map.

    Wonder if this is possible in Google Earth?

    Ok, I think I just managed to add myself to the Google earth community markers as 'APUG Member Andy K'. Anyone with Google Earth care to take a look at Southeastern England and let me know if it worked?

    It would only let me enter a zip code, so right now it says I live in the park a few blocks over. Perhaps it can predict the future and knows that if I keep buying all these cameras I will be living there.

    I can't find you and it doesn't seem to know where Ottawa Canada is either (that would be the capital of the country by the way )

    Yeah, it looks like Google Earth will only allow you to add a public placemark if it is a point of interest. It apparently takes a while to appear too. It may be there in a few weeks it may not. You have to register with the google earth community (it's free) and then submit your placemark.

    Oooops - I take it back - it was very slow to do it, but it did find Ottawa on about the fourth try and so there I am I still don't see you Andy, but a couple of your countrymen have appeared.

    PS : my pic is taken in front of a pair of economy sized N.A. trucks - no 4wd for this country boy
