In the thread about buying Chris a new computer, Ironsraven wondered if there were any geeks nearby. That gave me an idea. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I've been looking for an excuse to build an app around Google's new Map API. So, here it is: ETS Member Map. It's still kind of crude. There's no authentication whatsoever, so anyone can edit any site. But, please feel free to try it out, and add yourself.

Hmm, that's a little too accurate for putting on the internet- if you look at the satellite view, it put it on my garage, where I was when I clicked "save" on my GPS. I fudged it a bit using the "edit" function.

How about posting to a nearby park? i.e. Big Bend for the south of Texas.

>> that's a little too accurate <<

Yes - but about what I expected. I offset mine as well. For those who do not have a personal GPS (like me), just use Terra Server USA or a similar service for your country or region.

It's pretty late here so I was too lazy to take the GPS outside so I just used the terrsever site and put in an adjacent town and the state is it gives a long and lat for roughly the center of town (its a small town).

Same here. The map actually comes up, but then that error appears. When you click on the button to make the error go away, the entire map goes POOF with a DNS error.

That happened to me too with IE, so I loaded it up FireFox, where it worked fine.

*sigh* I only tested on firefox under Linux. When I get to work later today (and can find a Windows machine) I'll fix the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.
