View Full Version : KCBS Contest Map Application

A few weeks ago Todd (Plowboy) suggested I create an interactive mapping application that visually depicts contest locations. A version of such an application is now available for anyone's use.

http://www.thepickledpig.com/ppapps/contesthub/contestmapper.cfm

The pushpins have info and links tied to them (i.e., results for prior contests). And you can use the legend to narrow the view to weekly.

Mod Note:

This map is no longer available.

Shouldn't this say brought to you by Plowboys BBQ somewhere? :biggrin:

Good job bringing it to life, Paul. Are you going to run with some of the other ideas?

Historical results - See results from each contest by drilling in on the push pins

Personalized profiles - teams and judges can set their own schedules for the year. You can see where a team has been and where they are going.

This could turn into a social networking site where people start looking at the schedules of their friends and/or rivals. You can choose to go to or avoid a contest based on who is planning to be there.

KCBS REALLY should be considering these kinds of progressive ideas. But, like any government organization :wink:, private enterprise has to push innovation.

Historical results are there. Click on any contest from July 6 or eariler and you should see a link for the results. Would you rather see the results emedded directly in the info window?

The profiles and networking stuff will come but that's a little more involved from a development standpoint. If folks like this type of format, I might get something up in time for the 09 season.

There's a lot of functionality that can be added to this application. Contest ratings and reviews, weather overlays, street level camera views of the contest sites, team maps, ranked team maps, rep maps, etc. Unfortunately, I'm a one man operation and I'm not very good or very fast and easily get distracted so it may take a while.:-P

Great job, Paul!

Since we're dreaming, how about some other suggestions...

1. Somehow indicate whether a comp is a State Championship or Jack qualifier
2. When (or if) you get to the point of personalization, is it possible to include distance and driving time from a team's home address?

Thanks for putting that together!

I don't think he'll be able to tell what is a Jack Qualifier. You don't have to be a State Championship to be a Jack Qualifier. Nor are all State Championships Jack qualifiers.

As Todd guessed, I don't have the Jack information would need to find a reasonable way to get it. KCBS does publish State Championship status but I haven't been collecting it since I didn't realize I might actually want to use it until this very moment.:cry: This may be a feature I add on a forward looking basis rather updating past records.


2. When (or if) you get to the point of personalization, is it possible to include distance and driving time from a team's home address?


Absolutely. At least to an extent. I don't have the actual contest addresses, just the cities. As a result, the geocoding is only done to the city level but it can still provide approximate mileage, drive time, and directions from a known starting point. This can be automated once personalized but I think I can at least add a link for the time being. I'll work on it later this week.

The API is pretty flexible and chances are, if we can think of it, it can be done. I just need an idea and a data source.

It doesn't have to be exact. It would be a help when planning out a schedule or deciding between two comps.

That is really a fantastic application and one that will certainly make it easy for teams to plan. We've been real fans of your site and the rankings you've been doing and appreciate the way you are using technology to bring all of this data into forms that make it really easy to see and understand.

I have a suggestion for you but I don't know how feasible it would be to make happen. Regardless, here it is...

The Power Rankings are not necessarily the most accurate representation of which team is really "the best" at any given time. The reason I say this is because it is based on raw data and not on any kind of average. I'll give you an example of what I mean using baseball as a comparison.

Each year, Major League Baseball crowns a batting champion and that title is won by the player with the highest batting average. However, in order to qualify for the title, a player must have a minimum number of plate appearances. The reason there is a minimum plate appearances requirement is so that the batting champ isn't a guy with 50 appearances and a .375 average. As it stands right now at the All-Star break, the minimum number of plate appearances required for consideration is 295.

I propose that a more accurate way to Power Rank the teams would be take the number of points they have earned using the same method of calculating those points as you do right now but to then average those points by the number of events it took for the team to earn them. Teams would then be ranked according to their average but only those teams with a minimum number of events completed would qualify. (The number of events completed would be the counterpart to plate appearances in the batting average example.)

The reason I think this is a more accurate method for ranking is because the average would serve to level the playing field for teams that do not have the geographic advantage of being in an area where contests are available to them almost every weekend of the season. It would also take into account the times that a team has competed in an event and not finished in the Top 10 in any category or in the Overall rankings. The average would be based on all the events a team has entered and not just the ones in which points were earned.

This is my suggestion.

This is my suggestion.

That's why I never did pay too much attention to the rankings. Some of these guys do 30-40 comps a year. So they could have a bad year and still beat someone who had a fantastic year with only 12 comps in. I like the 'average' angle...it sort of puts everything in perspective.

Well Paul, what you have done and are doing is amazing, and appreciated.

You know, in April I contacted the KCBS Board and inquired as to when they would have the current team rankings posted. I was answered in an email on May 28th that the issue was addressed at the May meeting and they would hopefully be posted before the next meeting on June 11th. On July 3rd I asked about the status again, and was informed it was taking longer than expected and hopefully they would be posted by the end of July.

Sorry I got a bit off topic here talking about the rankings instead of the map,,,,,but still, like I said, what you have done and are doing is appreciated.

I didn't see a lot of need to include a previous year's map on the site. That data is actually available under the "Contest Results" section of the site.

That being said. Here are is a way to see it on the map:

1) Change the month identifier in the URL below (i.e., change "10" to "9" to see September 2007 results). My db only goes back to Jan. 1 of 2007 so that is a hard limitation.

http://www.thepickledpig.com/PPapps/contesthub/contestmapper.cfm?Month=10&Year=2007

If enough want this capability I can add a way to navigate to prior years.

That is awesome. Thanks for all the work.

On the driving distance etc. I use my spreadsheet program, and have listed all the places that I go to or want to go to. I have an old version of the Rand McNally road atlas program that I have tweaked the driving speeds, gas mileage etc., and it is real close for my driving and it always come real close to actual driving distance. I plug that info in, and then just enter the data into my spreadsheet. Once I have the driving distance, etc., I can adjust the gas price, and it will tell me how much I will spend on gas. I suppose one could use any of the on-line map programs to get the info as well.

Paul, how about showing contests by state. Like 2008 Missouri contests all on one Missouri map. I guess you could just show all contests on one map and then a person could zoom in to the state they wanted to see.

Also, how about moving all of your text below the map. Makes for better usability once the map redraws. The user doesn't have to scroll as much.

Keep going... you are on a roll.

Maybe you could tell me a little more how you would use such a view. What good would it do to see all of the contests in MO in a year unless they were also broken down by date? Or do you just want to see a graphical plotting of the dispersion of contests?

I am going to add a button so you can view the entire year at once but the pushpins won't be color-coded. I suppose I could add a drop down list of states that would refocus the map and zoom in on the selected state if it would be helpful.



Also, how about moving all of your text below the map. Makes for better usability once the map redraws. The user doesn't have to scroll as much.


Done. There is still some scrolling involved and I hope users take the time to look below the map for controls. If wanted, I could make the map smaller. That would further reduce scrolling.

Though not a definitive view since Jack Draws aren't specifically identified, you could look to see how many contests are in a given state for the year to understand your chances for a Jack draw. For example, I see a contest coming up in Idaho. Is that the only one? A year view of Idaho would answer that question. Not that I'm going to Idaho, but that's how I'd see it used. Wouldn't totally answer the Jack question, but could give you some context to drill in on.

There is a "View by Year" feature on the map now. Once selected, you can narrow the view by state. I color coded the push-pins for past and future contests in this view and added a few navigational features.

2. When (or if) you get to the point of personalization, is it possible to include distance and driving time from a team's home address?


I have added an interactive straight line distance calculator to the map. You can double click to add start and end points to get the straight line distance between the two points. You can also drag and drop the points once created to calculate new distances easily.

Straight line distance will be less than actual driving distance but this should give you a fair estimation of the travel involved.

Mileage and instructions are now located on the right side of the map.

Is there a way to get the Midwest BBQ & Blues Throwdown listed, it is a KCBS sanctioned contest as well as a certified State Championship Event?

Thanks

It is listed.

This is the coolest or should I say 'que'est app. When does the mobile version come out?

Done. The application has been updated to include all remaining 2010 contests.

It is now. The Lenexa contest was not on the KCBS schedule the last time the application was updated.

We have a searchable contest calendar that lists all contests in the country including all sanctioning organizations. We recently added a map feature.
