Using frappr we can create a map using the Google Maps interface to get a view of all the individual locations of the members here, showing us a different perspective of the iDevGames community.

Before going and adding yourself I would appreciate it if you could use this format:

"First Last (handle)" (without the quotes)

This is a completely opt-in map, so feel free not to add yourself for any reason.

Check it out, it's mighty cool.

EDIT: if you screw up the format, don't worry. Just let me know and I'll delete your entry so you can recreate your name properly.

Oh, I messed up with the name format. Sad Ohwell, now I know where Keith lives, so when he's not online, I can go ask him directly.

Shouldn't the map's default view be set to show the entire planet?

Fixed. Now it by default shows the world view (thanks for pointing that out).

Cool! I'm in there now.

My peg actually lands quite close to where I live, which in case anyone is interested, looks like this from the air:

I wonder if there is a way to specify a specific latitude / longitude (I'm definitely not on the location the zoomed in satellite view shows Wink )

Not that it isnt neat, I prefer looking for theme parks in satellite view, than know where people live though.

See this is tricky. I *live* in Houston, but my heart's in Montreal.

Sings *I left my heart, in San Fransisco*

This map clearly leaves no room for existentialist dilemmas. Bah humbug.

I'd add myself if it bloody recognised my City. What is the format for non-US people to enter there?

DoG: I just typed wellington and got a javascript pop-up of all the wellingtons in the world. I then had to type it out in full exactly as was in the list, clicking didn't seem to work, but perhaps that's just a safari problem.

Very cool little toy. Maybe we can add a link this to the main page?
