Re: Greater LA Rider's Map - Where are you?

I know this is way more difficult than in sounds, but is there any way to do "yahoo maps" kinda thing? You know, where you can point to a map point and zoom in and zoom out?

That way we could keep everyone on the same page, which I think is would be a good idea, as I think it adds cohesiveness.
That would be the ultimate map. Anyone here fluent in web programming?
Building the map in Flash may also be possible.

I'm not a web developer, but I'll give it a shot.

I've actually thought about how to change the map, while I was at work not working.
What about this:
We have a large SoCal map and instead of putting the persons name and nickname we put something like a pushpin, dart, dot (anything small) backed with a Java app that when the cursor goes over the pushpin a small popup displays the person info.

Let me know if it sounds interesting.

Anthony -

I do have the current map at a higher resolution, but the area it covers is not much more than what you see. I'll send you the map if you are interested. PM me with your email address.

Oh I like the java idea with the mouseover description. The problem with the map is trying to get all the data ON the map. But take the data OFF The map, and replace it with a little ICON and BAMMO..problem SOLVED!

LETS MAKE THE COOLEST MAP EVER!

Thanks Jiro for getting me on the Map, but FYI: I'm not in Newport Coast, I'm on Balboa Penninsula.........that would be to the right just a skosh from Tom Marhoefer. Not a big deal, but thought it may confuse others in the future. Thanks.
