Arrow Scale 4x4 RC Map - member locations and points of interest

This wasn't my idea, but I took a little initiative and came up with an open-edit Google Map that everyone here can access.

I figure anyone that wants to can add their location using one of the pins. If you're not comfortable giving your location, then don't! Remember, this is a public map. Anyone can see it.

If you know of places to run crawlers or great trail run locations, use one of the markers that isn't the 'standard' map pin.

[EDIT: Seems you need to be signed in to your Google account to place markers. Signup is free and easy!]

In order to place your marker, hit the edit button on the left side. Click the marker/pin button at the top of the map, then place your pin. A box will pop up to allow you to add information. In that box, you can click the picture of the pin in the top right corner to change what it looks like. I'd suggest something like a flag or a little arrow for crawling spots. You can even add information about parking locations at those areas.

Once you've finished, be sure to save your work or it won't stay!

If everyone pitches in and places a marker or two, this could be a great resource for our members.

Click here for the map!

Hmmm, I must be a blind guy...I can not find the edit button.


EDIT: Found it, need to be signed in to edit map.

I can't either, my deduction is Watson, you must be logged in. I have yet to test that though as I have no recollection what my Google password is.

It's only as nifty as you guys help make it! I figure the more info, the better!

And I've gotta give credit to Waterboy for the idea. I don't have enough free time to personally update a map so I guess you could call this the lazy way out.

Ok, so I just added myself this morning. It looks like anyone can go in and delete anyone?
Didn't want to test it, but if so it would be nice if we could lock it down somewhat.
