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.

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.

Nice, Paul. I love this thing. I use it a lot. Never have to go to the KCBS Web site.

Another Plowboy special...

I added another interactive map application that shows the locations of a user selected team's Top 10 hits. It's kind of cool to see where certain teams are concentrating their wins. Thanks again to Plowboy for coming up with the idea.

Looks great. Next up... Awards Map Widget!

Someone should be talking to KCBS about resolving their TOY tracking issues.

Awesome job thanks for all the hard work. I work with some programmers and know that it is not always that easy. Kind of like when some one says hey how about we have you whip up a batch of pulled pork or brisket. they have no concept of the prep and time it takes to do such a thing.

Thanks for your time and use of your talent.

All you had to do was ask...and wait 3 months.

New Awards Map Widget available for those teams with a Top 10 overall finish since 1/1/08.

Below is a static image of the new widget. The actual widget is fully interactive and can be customized to match other design profiles.



It's bigger than a traditional widget (380px x 280px) so it might not work for some layouts.

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.
Could we have one of these for future contests?
Do you need a sponsor?
