Map with locations of local fish stores

Post  Betty on 2010-09-11, 22:14

Hey guys,

I have a tendency to get lost when going to the fish stores out of my area that I don't visit very often, so I was putting together a map this morning of the stores that I have been to (and a couple that I'd like to go to) and thought this might be a good idea for the site to have in the Rate the Fish Store section. The ratings are a great idea, but there are no addresses in the topics, so having a map in that section would help to locate these stores.

The Google maps are customizable and you could highlight our sponsors' stores with a different color or symbol to make them stand out or whatever other ideas you come up with. You can add pictures, videos, descriptions, etc.

Here's mine as an example -- hope this works. Very Happy (I know there are a lot more stores than just these.)


View Fish stores in a larger map

If you click "View Fish stores in a larger map" it takes you to the full view with the names of the fish stores listed in alphabetical order. Or you can click on the markers on the map and it should tell you the name of the fish store. Or you can just use a link if you don't want to embed the map --> Fish Store Map

Utter and complete absence. Well, salterwater peeps have a nice, albeit small store in The Shark Reef and koi peeps have Clear Creek Nursery. For the rest of us... it' s just a dark hole.

Icer, have you ever clicked on "Who is online" down toward the bottom of the index page? That will show you the approximate location of members, but only the ones that happen to be online at the same time.

I have been on a couple of forums that have the maps that let members add their own locations as well.
