Title: Mayhem World Model Boat Map! (Club, Event & Modellers)
Post by: Martin [Admin] on September 03, 2008, 01:37:14 PM
Hi all,

Just had a thought, can we create a map of all things Model Boating?
Clubs, Lakes, Events, Manufactures, Museums, Modellers...... anything really!

I've had a quick look on Google maps -  http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=115439289302912786204.000455fd039eb4a7d09fe (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=115439289302912786204.000455fd039eb4a7d09fe)

Would anyone like to volunteer to look into it a bit further ( and manage the input and map uploads?! )

When I asked a few weeks ago for Members to signal their location a few joined in.

Personally, I would find it fascinating to see how far Mayhem has spread. The possibilities are endless as Martin proposes....come on folk, a volunteer is wanted.

This sounds like a great Idea ,  I have used google maps to plan holidays and spy on locate family dwellings where I used to live.
If no one else wants it  I will give it a go.

Richard,

Tried that and found it very interesting, but how do we add to it??
Title: Re: Mayhem World Model Boat Map! (Club, Event & Modellers)
Post by: Martin [Admin] on September 03, 2008, 10:04:23 PM

... I'm hoping 'The long build' will manage it!  O0

...or you can post your location (post or Zip code is best) a Tittle and quick description (Website) and we'll add to the map.

Access the map by clicking on the link.

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=115439289302912786204.000455fd039eb4a7d09fe

You do need a Gmail account to post. E'mail address and password needed.

Click on Edit.

The icons will appear at top of map

Click on the icon of the marker and then double click on the map. Type details in box that appears. Then click on OK then click on save.

Post by: barryfoote on September 04, 2008, 08:04:06 AM
Richard,

Edit is not an option given. It may be that as the map creator only you have this option.

Martin,

A zip or post code is okay for the Uk but outside, some of them cover a large area. I know mine does, so I would have to mark my place on a map and send it to Richard or the Long Build so they can transfer the details.....Seems a bit long winded to me.....but as a famous man says......What do  know?

Barry
Title: Re: Mayhem World Model Boat Map! (Club, Event & Modellers)
Post by: Martin [Admin] on September 04, 2008, 09:04:16 AM

Well there are several mapping options, 'yahoo local', Google Earth, MSN Live maps and they all require (rightly) logon authentication.
Anyone can create a Google account (Gmail) and can be invited to the Model Boat Mayhem to "Collaborate" (but of the good kind!) and you can move your "placemark"s to precisely where you want to.

If anyone know of something easier, better, faster, let us know!

Richard,

Yes I was signed in and edit does not appear. If you think about it it will quite rightly only let the maps owner edit it, otherwise "Mayhem" would ensue. (Forgive the pun).

Interesting stuff.

Dicky, I'm still not sure what to do. Can you run it through, nice and s-l-o-w one more time?

1) Do I actually need to download Google Maps? If so, where from? How does it work? Is it like Google Earth?
2) How/where do I get a Gmail account?
3) What then?

Help!

Right you should all have access to the edit / add placemark options now...

Just looking again, I see there is an option to "Allow anyone to edit this map", don't quite like
the sound of that just yet, I think we need a little more experience first.

Editing the map is not that easy it seems...

I opened the email link which then opened the map. Above the map title it says Collaborate, I clicked the edit button next to this and it opened a range of options on the top of the map. I then picked the pushpin and placed on the map. Screen print attached

Map is looking busy already

Not sure why some people are having problems, I found it a piece of cake, however this could be because I have a google email address as well.
I loaded up the address provided by Martin & DD  in this thread and then logged into my account , and made the map a "My map " in my account"  then just added the post code into the search and then just added a picture and changed the Icon, the whole thing took less than a minute.

Regards Footski and Roger in France could it be that for what ever reason the google site will not allow editing from outside the UK ? just a thought.

I think that once it is up a running this could be a really useful aid to locate clubs and venues.

One thing however I would be cautious about, is  putting the location of your address on the site for obvious reasons, particulary if Th UK site does go down the same route as the US where you can vertualy do a 360 tour of the house from the ground.

I have no specific  edit button either , I just search for the location and then a small pop up appears to let me then change things but no specific edit button, unless the changes I have made can only be seen by me ?. Can you see the runcorn club on the map ?.

It appears also that I could alter the other locations which is a bit worring.

Correct , you take my point. Why in the UK did we not use a UK map for the samples, only an English one?   Just being pedantic,I`ll be better when I have my dram and a belly full of haggis and porridge, listened to a few pibrochs on the chanter and danced a couple of reels. {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)  Nice to see an Oriental location O0

Hey Martin,

Just a thought. If we all need a Google Account, why not contact them and see if they are prepared to sponsor the site in some way, aftyer all there can't be many world wide clubs, planning to keep in touch through their system.....It could just make a bob or two for our hard working leaders....Just a thought...

Hello Dicky, talking about 'moving posts around' was I dreaming that one - I am sure I said I sailed at that lake - SOMETIMES! 

Now then who altered that then?

I wonder....... {-) {-) {-) {-)

Today, Dicky, I dont need to go to the lake....there is a big enough puddle outside the front door to sail boat.....its lashing it down here.  :angel:

Hi all,

Just added Southend Model Power Boat Club, however I appear to have inadvertently moved Roger In France whilst scrolling around, sorry!

I'd offer to move you back, but France is a big place!!

Hanging my head in shame  :embarrassed:

I was in England at the time with no IT access and so you could have done anything!

Hey! remember this?


 

Just had a thought, can we create a map of all things Model Boating?
Clubs, Lakes, Events, Manufactures, Museums, Modellers...... anything really!

I've had a quick look on Google maps -  http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=115439289302912786204.000455fd039eb4a7d09fe (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=115439289302912786204.000455fd039eb4a7d09fe)

Would anyone like to volunteer to look into it a bit further ( and manage the input and map uploads?! )
