Tip - Member Map
« on: February 22, 2011, 09:28:44 PM »
NEW FEATURE!    NEW FEATURE!     NEW FEATURE!     NEW FEATURE!     NEW FEATURE!     NEW FEATURE!
Go to the MEMBER MAP tab to view ABOG member's locations around the USA & Canada.

To enter your own location, look below the map and it will allow you to place your own pin. Pin your house if you dare or just pin your home city,  favorite boat launch, favorite fishing grounds, etc.

This will help everyone get to know the other ABOG members that are in your neighborhood.

Now I just need to figure out how to add places of interest like the Arima Boat factory (which is where this map centers) and other Arima related locations.

Enjoy!

after you place your pin on the map, be sure to hit the 'update profile' button (bottom right of page) or it won't stick.  Please don't ask how I know this (only took three times). :doh:

Looks as if most of the pinned so far are from "Gods Country" IE the NW.  I'm not sure if we should include those Oregon guys with that title though. :jester: :jester:

Hmmm... I don't know but we call my area the Adirondack Mountain Region "God's Country" and I seem to be the only member pinned in this area of the country. So maybe we have a debate here on where is Gods country?

But anyway I do feel kind of lonely over here on the east side.

Russ, my map is cooler than yours.  If you zero down on me and go to satellite you can see my house, my truck, the lawn furniture in the back yard.  Zero in on yours and it points to a grove of trees.  Mine is really neat. But its OK Russ, the nerds are as follow:  Danno - piece of dirt beside a road, Croker - bunch of trees, 3Wgt - some one's back yard.  I win.

Woot!  The fine folks at Simple Machines Forum taught me how to add custom pin locations to the Google Map. I've added Arima Marine Int. I'll be adding each of the Arima Dealers as I get time. I hope to eventually be able to add logos and custom pins for non-member locations.

Yes the member map is really cool, especially when you use the satellite views. I pinned mine to where I normally do most my boating and fishing and in the general area of where I usually launch on Lake Champlain. My summer camp is located close by to this area.

I added a picture to the Arima Marine link on the map. Also added Sportcraft Marina to the member map with a logo. One dealer down, about 50 to go.

Come on Danno.... now you have to figure out how to use a different color pin for Arima dealers and etc. Make it easy to find the nearest dealer!

OK Woody

You win.  I told the location protocol to pin the mess you have been making where the boat is currently stored.  It did a good job....   :applause: 

Now I wonder if it will follow me when I go fishing???  :shrug9:  Don't want everyone to see my 'secret holes'  :facepalm: 

Of course if you are along it won't matter 'cause we never catch anything on those outings.  Maybe you should think about changing your handle to Jonah???  :whistle:

P.S.  Where those other Canuk's anyway?  A bunch of lower 48 folks missing too.

Hey, I'm a Canuck ... maybe a long time enjoying the lower 48's  ... but I signed up.

Russ, yep, I see your Arima's home, your truck and even Cooper frolicking in the yard. You have to look real close, squint and believe.

I'm trying FE. The fine folks at Smart Machines Forum have provided lots of help but it seems this portion of the Member Map would require some involved programming and that means time on their part to figure it out. They usually want to get paid for that type of effort.  They have noted that it will likely be a feature in a future revision but don't have a date for that yet.

I have most of the Arima Delaers in except a few in the NE. I figured I would start with the PNW where the majority of sales are and then work outward. Some of the dealers don't even have a web page so I'm reluctant to even put them on the map. How can you have a business without a web page in 2011?

Ok Dan you will have to keep the green pins until they do a programming update. Yes I am surprised that some of the dealers on the east coast do not do more to advertise their marina and Arima boats.
