Can you do another map based on the swarms thread?  It would be fascinating to see the locations of where swarms were collected.

Interesting idea and something to look into.  It will not be a trivial effort and we are in prime beekeeping season, so currently not much free time.   I will add it to the 'todo' list.

thanks for the idea

Perhaps an automatic aging off the map of six months. Thus the map should be mostly bare in December. And then color code them by age of the swarm report. Then we can see what areas are swarming. May be a localized thing based upon weather and flora, but interesting none-the-less...

Diogenes,
Sounds like a great idea. If you want the old info to fade, I would like to be able to control that fade. By that I mean, next year I would like to look back and see when the swarms peaked and ebbed to be able top plan for this year.
