Oct 2011 Oh no! Google Maps has a hiccup!!
Oh no! Google Maps has a hiccup!! If you’ve clicked on our “Pilot Map” tab before, you’ve visited Google Maps. You’ve probably zoomed in to see the airports where our lady taildragger pilots are based and clicked on a pink marker to see the pilot’s name, location and airport identifier. It’s all good! But girls, I’m sorry to say you’re not all on the map because of a snag I recently ran into. Apparently, Google Maps has a maximum number of 200 markers they allow for one map and anyone entered beyond that number gets automatically bumped to a second (or third) hidden map. The maps are layered and you really have to look hard to figure out there’s another layer, let alone find it. How about seeing if you can find map 2 and the girls on it?!
I’m looking for ideas and your thoughts on how to get over this little bump in the road. Please leave a comment and let me know how important you think a map is and what you think the best solution is. It takes time to enter all the information and if it’s not accessible we may need a “Plan B”! Thanks everybody. Judy

I agree with Anne — divide the country up per time zones even — it’s great having the map so if you find yourself someplace you have a quick reference as to who is nearby!

I don’t know, but I’m looking awfully lonely here in WY. And is there anyone in ND or SD?

How about dividing up the country into sections, like the Airport/Facility Directory (East Central, etc.)? I think a map is a good thing, especially for those who travel cross-country, or even just want to see who is nearby.
