The goal of the Swarm and Bee Removal Map is to provide a means for people with bee "issues" to find help near them.  In keeping with our non-commercial ideology the mapping system was developed to promote members that support our forum (participation-wise, NOT monetarily) and not just promote those who join just to get their information on the map.   In addition to promoting our members,  it is imperative that the information on the map stay current, and that members can update their information in a consistent and easy manner.

Any member can submit their information for the map.  But to show on the map,  the member must have at least 30 posts in the forum, have logged into the forum at least once in the last 30 days, and have verified their map information within the last year.

All of these criteria are maintained and monitored by the mapping application,  so if you do not meet one or more of these,  you will not show on the map.  But once you meet all the criteria, your information will automatically appear on the map without any additional actions required on your part.

Example 1: You only have 20 posts in the forum, but you want to be listed on the map and submit your information.  Once approved, you will not show on the map initially,  but once your post count hits 30,  your information will automatically show. 

Example 2: You are listed on the map and stop participating in the forum for a couple of months and your info falls off the map because you don't meet the "active in the last 30 days" criteria.   You return to the forum 3 months later.  Once you return,  your info will automatically appear on the map and the 30 day clock starts again.

Example 3: You are listed on the map, but fail to verify your information on a yearly basis.  Once the your info is verified and approved, you will appear on the map again.

Yearly Verification:
Yearly verification emails will be sent to the email you register with at the 12 month mark. a 2nd reminder will be sent 2 weeks later.  You will be removed from the map 2 weeks after the second notice if your information has not been verified.  It is important that you whitelist administrator@beemaster.com if you use a spam filter to guarantee you get the verification notices.

There are also different color markers on the map to identify a members standing within the forum

- Super member - Those members with more than 1500 posts
- Dedicated member - Those members with 500 - 1500 posts
- Active member - Those members with 30 - 499 posts

You can visit the map and add/update/remove your information by using "bee removal" in the menu bar or buy clicking here.

This is really a fantastic update.  I applaud you for all the time and effort you put into the project.  I'm really impressed with the pop up when you put the cursor on a flag, nice big easily read letters with all pertinent info. 

Excellent.

Robo- great job. I do have a question. Since NJ is small, how will people find all of the flags for individuals? If I am on the map, I cant find myself for example. I might just be ahead of your posting.....

The map supports the normal google map controls for zoom/pan.  I picked the default zoom to fit the whole US since that seemed like a logical place to start.


NJ is no different than any other state as far as zoom level.  People will overlap if they live in close proximity to each other.  With a little zooming and panning,  folks can find all the beeks in their vicinity.

Konasdad:

Zoom in close and will quickly see that EVEN NEIGHBORS will spread apart on the map, but you are so right about our garden state - it could be just ONE BIG BUBBLE if you scroll back just a bit. It is an amazing map, I wonder if NEXT we'll have Google Type driving direction  applause for all that Robo had done!

This has been a major pet project for him a very long time and it shows cause each time I see it, it is better and more informative with ease of operation to the member joining the list.

Great Job Robo - this is a great service to the members.

Now let's make it real fun. Everyone start sending Robo the address of each removal and swarm you deal with and we make that map really interesting. Please note this idea is not endorsed by Robo.  evil

I like that idea of posting where the swarms were and how it all went down.  I bet after a few years if not sooner we would see patterns in the bee colonies.  I think that swarm catching is the greatest thing ever right now.  But I am also interested in queen rearing!! I second that idea of swarm maping.

On my todo list but definately won't happen this season, maybe next.


Can use a little brainstorming on the data to take.

I'm thinking:

Name
Location
Date
Type (swarm, cutout, trapout)
How long it was there
Link to detailed write-up

It would be interesting if there was a way to tell if the swarm is a feral or domesticate. It would give a guide as to the wild bees in the area.

Added my info last week and got the admin approval but my location wasn't on the map.  Then I saw the "conditions" required so I guess I'd better start posting to get up to the required 30.  I've been a member for over a year but guess I've just been a lurker since I'm so new at this and have seldom felt confident enought to make any suggestions or informed comments other than " I love beekeeping!".

I added my info a few months ago, how often is this updated?  I know one of the people listed in my area (KC, MO) has moved to upstate NY a year ago and I'm hoping to get added by the time Spring hits.  Is there something else I need to do?  I'm a little embarassed about looking pushy with this post, so please take it with a grain of salt.

I'm already on various sites but I figured the more the better Wink.  I haven't done Craigslist for swarm removal yet but I'll try it this year.  I like this site and the way the map here works but it doesn't appear to be active.
