Eivindm's membership maps
« on: October 07, 2004, 01:07:18 PM »
Update from eivindm 2009-07-19:  I have now created a new membership map. Click here to view the map. The maps below are outdated and will no longer be updated (but I keep them there for historical reasons).



The markers are placed on the map according to the google map database.  If you are placed at a different place than you actually live, please change the location in your user profile (typically by adding a country name or state) and wait for me to update the map.  You can test your location string at maps.google.com as it will give you the same placement on that map as on the beemaster.com membership map.

All markers that overlap each other are clustered together and represented by a number.  Click on the cluster marker to zoom in.  As soon as you have zoomed in enough for the markers to not overlap, they will be represented as regular markers.  Click on a marker to see who is living there.

At any time, click on the "List visible users" button over the map to get a (paginated) list of users that live within the current map view.  By zooming in to a smaller view where fewer people live, the list of visible user will be changed equally.


Original post by BigRog:

I am going to post Eivindm's 2 membership maps here.
He has done a great job and I'm sure that everyone will want to check to see if they have some new nieghbors. Click on the blue numbers to see the membership list for that state

Click here to get another version of the map where you can click on a state and see who lives there

Hats off to Eivindm.
Not only did he do a fine job on these maps and the list, but he is also keeping them updated.

Thanks, Great Job!

I'm from New Mexico, living in Iraq and moving to Utah when I get home. Does that get New Mexico like a 1/3 of a person rating :D
After 18 months of reading and preparation, my girls finally arrived on April 11th (2006)!

I just took a look at the membership listing and EVERY SINGLE REAL MEMBER (discounting the computer generated ones) but all the real members have added a location - BRAVO to them!!!!

I hope this is a sign of things to come - having this info is very helpful for many reasons and I'm glad that the new membership has caught on to the need to give us their basic location to help map the world with our membership.

Great Job everyone, statistically we have some really awesome days ahead and as Franky goes to Hollowood said "The World is our Oyster!" and we really are getting a large collection of states and countries that without Eivindm map, we would really NOT have a clue of the true demographics represented here. Great work all.

DEGREE CONFLUENCE PROJECT
« Reply #11 on: November 09, 2004, 09:35:38 PM »
It's been a while since I posted this link, so I can't think of a better area right now to post the link to the DEGREE CONFLUENCE PROJECT @ http://www.confluence.org - quick recap about this 5 STAR website: Around the planet there are thousands of intersecting longitude and latitude locations on the globe. The theme of this site is for ordinary people to trek to these locations ( called Confluences ) and take photos of the exact intersection, and images North, South, East and West while standing at that confluence.

The adventures use GPS devices to prove their location - see the actual photo of the location documented by camera and all the photos of villages, cities and the secluded wilds of the world.

This may sound easy and sometimes it is, but MOST of the time the confluences are smack in the middle someones home, in the middle of a stream, high atop a mountain ridge, deep in a valley or even moles and miles into never before visited dense forrest.

What really makes the site neat is the stories people write concerning their trip to the confluence, sometimes it is a trip planned YEARS in advance. other times it is a rope climb down a 1000ft cliff into a valley of snakes.

But the code (the admin uses a similar program to this forum) is so interactive that you can literally find any single confluence by location, finder, and a multitude of ways. The images are great, the stories are pure adventure and you will get to see parts of the world that our membership come from like you have never seen before.

Just as an example, there are only 5 confluences in New Jersey (Beemaster's state) - and only 885 in the entire USA. so don't think these confluences are a dime a dozen, it is a rare treat to see these and an amazing feat to have actually made their way through unimaginable terrain to actually log the confluence for the world to share. These people (and you could be one of them) are modern day Lewis and Clarks, Magellans, and other explorers - share their experiences and see the world without ever having to leave this website.

On the main page JUST LOOK at all the Countries Listed and you will be hooked. Have fun if you have never been here before.

Lastly, I strongly suggest downloading one of the free Text to Speech readers (from the Download and software section) to let the PC read some of the longer posts while you look at the images and surf. But if you like reading, then I promise THIS SITE is one you will come back to again and again.

Welcome back and I'm surely not talking about you!!!

I mean the people who post their location as:

These are Not actual samples, but close...

Somewhere between my front yard and back yard.
Near where I park my car.
Close to the Interstate.
Near my Baby-Daddy's Uncle's Mamma.
About THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSS far from a major Ocean.

You know the ones - lol.

It's just hard to get a straight answer. Keep up the mapping, awesome work!!!

LOL!!  :lol: You really got me laughing there! I have used some time to figure out such locations and it often results in a PM to the user :-)
