Thread: Google Map to all things SOMC related

  1. #1

    Exclamation Google Map to all things SOMC related

    Hey everyone, I've taken some time to put together a Google map that we can all add stuff to that relate to SOMC.
    I figure this will be a good way for us to get an idea of who's close to whom, and make it a useful resource for finding stuff.

    If your are going to add something try to keep to these standards (I will update the standards when necessary)


    • Please be as descriptive as possible, adding phone numbers and URL's if related - Remember though, that this is a publicly viewable map.
    • If you are interested, add your approximate home location (or full location if you wish) with a yellow home icon (yellow pin for work)
    • Don't "out" people and their location's unless they've asked you to add them
    • Dealerships are listed with a magenta pin
    • Repair shops are listed with a yellow wrench
    • Event locations are listed with a green pin

    Great idea... I have not used this that much before.. How do we add ourselves?

    It's my first time using it as well, I thought it may be a perfect solution to problems we didn't know existed.

    In order to add yourself you can create/use an account with Google/YouTube (or send me a PM with your address(es) or city and I'll add them).
    Once you're signed in and on the map you should be able to drop your own places and edit them.

    Here's some more documentation from Google:

    Let me know how it goes!

    When you're at Google Maps there's a left navigation. If the navigation is not shown click the tiny right facing gray arrow on the far left of the window to open it.


    • Then click on the Red EDIT button.
    • There will be 3 tools that show up at the top left of the map. The middle one is the pin tool.
    • You can search for your location by address then place a pin at that point.
    • Don't forget to title and enter any notes that should included.
    • You can change the type of representative icon by clicking on the icon in the detail popup
    • When you're done, don't forget to click the save and done buttons.
    • You can also save the map as well.

    Great idea. Trying to figure out how to use it from my phone. The Google maps app doesn't support it, but opening it in chrome works, can't figure out how to add to it.

    I'm not sure if this will work on mobile systems.
    I've tested it in Windows 7 for IE, Firefox and Chrome

    If anyone wants me to put them up myself, PM me the details and I'll post them to the map.
