Mayhem World Model Boat Map! (Club, Event & Modellers)
« 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

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.

... 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.

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?

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.

Just put one in for Furness MBC - worked fine.

Martin, are you going to put a link somewhere so we can all find the map easily?
