I like it also, I suggested to Tony that he pre-sort the data into the following groups (yes the data is taken from your profile info).

1 7/SS Building/Flying
2 5/6 Building/Flying
3 4 Building/Flying
4 1-3 Building/Flying
5 4/SS Considering
6 No Status

Perhaps no status = no pin, too draconian? might encourage folks to update their status and keep the Map a little less cluttered.

Any administered Map takes work on Tony's part, thanks Tony!

Thanks for the support, guys. I appreciate it!

Kitfoxnick, did you recently update your membership info? I checked the data I copied-and-pasted back on March 3 and all that was there was your name and location. There is no link between the membership list and the map, so if you updated your info after Mar-3 it won't be reflected in the map until I do another manual update.

So the "free" version of BatchGeo only supports up to ~2500 rows of data. TeamKitfox is currently at ~1700 members and I think we should plan for the future. I was thinking of creating four separate maps to break up the data:

- a map for Series 7/SS interested members grouped by "Considering," "Building," "Flying," and other.
- a map for Model IV interested members grouped by "Considering," "Building," "Flying," and other.
- a map for members interested in the other models/series grouped by "Considering," "Building," "Flying," and other.
- a map for everyone else (all the members who didn't list a particular model/series)

I know I am trying to find the closest SS "builder" to me so I can check it out, help, etc. What do YOU guys hope to find in a map of members? Other suggestions?

I recommend one map for the first three and one for no-status, I think this should leave plenty of headroom. Another field could be "active" or has the member signed on to the site in the last 6 months/year, I think there may be a number of members who signed up to check out the Kitfox then moved on. I know of at least one Kitfox that is on the map twice as it got sold but the original owner did not update their status (or return to the site).

Thanks guys. I've updated the two existing maps:

TeamKitfox members with "status" info:
http://batchgeo.com/map/34e3d56ef6e8...632c4827211529

TeamKitfox members without:
http://batchgeo.com/map/079fffec28b8...00164e7d2c7beb


Note: the data plotted is the same data captured on March 3. I plan on updating it about once a month.

Let me know what you think, other ideas/suggestions, etc!

Cheers-
T

Hey! I just discovered that if you click on the map's legend entry that you care about (for example, the red teardrop labeled "Building/Flying: Super Sport/Series7") then only that data set will be displayed!

Thanks for the supportive words, guys. KitfoxNick really started this ball rolling. Thanks Nick!!!

FYI- I've added links to both new members maps on our main page along with Nicks map. I'll do my best to keep up with Tony and try to keep them as fresh as possible.

Hi All,
I had some spare time on my hands while taking care of a sick kid today, so I'd thought I'd try mapping some FAA data on where the Kitfoxes, Avids and Highlanders are located in the US.

I got rid of as much questionable data as I could easily find, but the database information isn't the highest quality. It pretty well matches the spread of our group, but there are a lot more A/C out there than I knew.

Check out the link: http://mapalist.com/Public/pm.aspx?mapid=241053

I have tried to add my info a couple times but each time with no luck. I guess I am not saving it properly or something
