Hey guys, I am going to try and put together a paintball map via google maps. Don't think that it has been done before and it could be a great little tool. The aim being to have on a map all the locations that are paintball related, e.g.:
Shop locations
Paintball Fields
Tournament Locations
Big Game locations etc

Once finished the Irish one, I am going to do a UK, Europe and then World one.
It is pretty easy to do, all i need is for you guys to go to the tool that I wrote and pin-point the location of interest, copy the coordinates provided and post them up to me. Couldn't be easier.

Tool: http://www.paintball...pic.php?p=19549

Once complete, no body will have an excuse for getting lost again.

I've found google maps isn't real good with the remote areas PB fields are normally set up in.

They dont have to the live images, just the map view. Ireland has very little coverage too but check out the work so far:

I would recommend instead using Google Earth, which will provide you a lot more flexibility in adding polygons, place markers and the like. It will also allow you to add in animations, time animations as well as distribute the files via .KML.

I work in mapping and GIS so if you have questions on it I can definitely give you some advice.

yes tru, but every body has google earth and are bothered to download it. This way, if you want to find out a place quickly, you can just visit a wepage with out having to download stuff.

I dont really need animations anyways. I will keep it simple and then expand as needed.

Just started work on the uk map there now folks. So if you could give me some more links it would be great, cheers.

It will be basic for the time being, when i get most links together I will be adding tabs to seperate shops from fields etc.

Once again, tool for finding a location: http://www.paintball...opic.php?t=1556
