Where are you? Global locator for you to fill in!

Pretty much as it say...

I've created a Zeemaps for "us", so we can see whereabouts the members are.

Please feel free to add your location (you can be as accurate or as vague as you want - i've just entered Staffordshire). For "name", i've used my Forum name (also my real one, but there you go).

Naturally, the "home" location is Tamworth :wink:

Done, quite simple really, it'll be interesting to see how members are spread out and will no doubt help plan locations for shows etc which are near to hotspots of members

I've added my club email address and my website too so people can reach me with coupe type questions

well done Phil, Matt

the preset zoom is too fine, zoom out on the left slider bar, we'll then all become visible.

To add your details, click on the second little tab from the left on the top of the map (called 'additions' I think) and click 'add marker'

see you on there, Matt

Have changed the link so it now shows England, Ireland and NW Europe..
Drag (click mouse and move) the map to see the Scotland and mainland Europe. Use the zoom "-" icon to find the rest of the world...

I've just added Curborough and the RSSOC HQ location

I like this map thingy, if I ever get time, I might try and plot the whereabouts of all the coupe's on my register. It might prove to be useless but should be interesting at least to know where all the coupes ended up, I could even match the map parker colour to that of the car

That said, I've got my hands full rebuilding mine so may not ever get time to map the register, nice idea though

ttfn, Matt
