Default Interactive Sponsor/Vendor Map

I've created a map that pinpoints locations of the sponsors/vendors of PSA for quick reference. The idea here is to easily find a shop near a member, or someone else in need. There has been more than a few times I've tried helping someone out through a forum and would love nothing more than to recommend a good reputable shop near them, but I never know where the good shops are located. This alleviates that problem. Now you can pull the map up and get driving directions to the nearest repair shop to you.

On the map you will see two color coded tags (for now, maybe add more later). Blue tags signify a shop that basically does parts only. Red tags indicate a shop that does parts AND repairs.

If you highlight over a tag, it should show the shop name. If you click on the tag, you will find all of the info you could want/need for said shop. I believe all have an exact address as well as phone numbers. Some have links to their website and emails as well. I can tweak these as we progress, it doesn't have to stay like this. I can add a photo, a youtube vid, a link to your facebook page, whatever you guys want.

This is for everyone, and if anyone thinks anything needs changing, please let me know. Anyone should be able to view this. When you open the map, you'll notice it's zoomed in on the center of the US, so just zoom out a bit and you'll see the tags across the country. I'm going to try and figure out a way for it to open up already zoomed out where it needs to be, but for now this will do.

Again, anything can be changed as you see fit. If any more sponsors/vendors want in, please just PM me your info. The more info the better. I would like to have:

Shop name
Address
Phone number
Email address (if applicable)
web address (if applicable)
A brief description of what your shop does or what your capabilities are, or what you specialize in
We can also put shop hours in if you want, though I may recommend leaving that on your website, so if you ever need to change it, it's not wrong on the map.

It's up to you guys.

Thoughts/comments/suggestions welcome!

Here's the map: http://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=503...0240&z=4&add=1

Enjoy!

Mike

Well for now, I attempted to set it up so it requires a password to change anything, and I believe that's how it's set up. I just didn't want a ton of arbitrary info being posted, and wanted to keep it all the same. As for putting up a shop that doesn't sponsor the site... well... I hadn't thought about that honestly. There's no reason we can't I suppose, but at the same time I don't want the map flooded with just any shops either, I want to keep it to reputable shops. Someone you can blindly trust to send a stranger to and know they will be taken care of. The kind of shops that sponsor on PSA, we know they're good shops. That kind of shop. Know what I mean?

I guess we should discuss it though, see what everyone thinks. Or do we want to keep it as a "benefit" for our current sponsors/vendors? I mean, it is in the sponsor section now, and is titled Sponsor/Vendor map... I think we should probably just leave it for those guys for now. Maybe later we can add a few more shops in, using a different color or something. That's my thoughts on it...

that is awesome so far!! i know just having site sponsors on it would keep it psa oriented but for those of us that travel the country and often work in BFE, it woukd be nice if need be to know if there is a shop close to use to do repairs. even if not a sponsor.

live life full throttle

After talking it over with a few of the staff members, I think we're going to keep it to just sponsors/vendors for the time being.

Everyone who has PM'd me to be on the map is on there as of this morning.

Thanks,
Mike
