Default Personalized Maps Displayed for Each Member

A personalized world map highlighting every country a photograph has been taken, plus one's home country or country of residence (denoted by a red square) is now displayed on each member's 'Intro' page.

This map will be regenerated once per day assuming one's home country has changed or a country has been added or removed from the list of places where a member has taken a photo.

If anyone encounters any problems or has suggestions on how it may be improved, please let me know.

Wow!
This is an amazing feature. Thanks Adam.

You've got me wanting to start colouring in the rest of my map now... ;-)

Martin.

Great feature, Adam! Good for a single glance summary of where a person's been. It also makes me want to get off my ass and travel. Makes me want to go someplace big like Greenland, Russia or Australia, just to look impressive on the map!

Doesn't it just...?

Adam has some "biggies" like Russia and China.
"syair" also has a great map.
Very impressive!

Got to go... I have to make the travel agents before they close. ;-)

I'm glad you like it! I'm thinking about eventually extending this idea to the 'Travelogues' section as well. Each trip will display a similiar map at top with the country or countries visited highlighted. In addition, if more than one country was visited during the trip, there will be lines joining one country to the next, maybe with arrows so one can visually see the order of countries visited.

Adam,

Another good idea would be to see a map with all the countries all TrekEarth members have covered so far. This way it'll help us to plan our next trip! :)

Good idea. As of today, 2003-03-06, these are the countries TrekEarth members have posted photos to.

<img src="/images/misc/all_member_map.gif" border="1" width="450" height="254">

Note that I have Greenland listed under Denmark, but I didn't highlight it graphically. I'm not sure which way to go. I could either separate Greenland from Denmark, or highlight Greenland when a photo is posted to Denmark.

Hi Adam, relatively new member here, so please forgive a naive question: is the map still being automatically regenerated nightly? If so, I don't understand why my personal map displays only some of the countries for which I've posted photos. Probably something obvious, but I'm not getting it - appreciate any clarification you can provide.

Thanks and regards, Steve

Hi Steve,

I've just looked at your profile. It shows that you have posted images from 6 countries and they are all highlighted on the map.
