Default Corvette Forum C7 Owners Map

I thought it might be fun to see where C7s are popping up across the country so I created an online map for Corvette Forum C7 owners to post their location if they so desire.

You have the option of creating a marker right on your home or you can simply mark the city you live in.


The link to the map is Corvette Forum C7 Owners Map


INSTRUCTION FOR ADDING A MARKER TO THE MAP

- On the upper left tabs, select "Add Marker - Simple." An "Add Entry" box will appear.

- Enter information in the "Entry Name" field such as the model year of your C7 (yes, I know it doesn't matter this year, but next year it will), color, trim level, and coupe or convertible. You can also select the color of your marker here, allowing you to make your marker the color of your Corvette.

- Then either enter a specific location (City and State) or zoom to the location that you want to mark on the map.

- If you entered information in the "Location" field, click the "Preview" button to make sure the marker is where you want it. If it is, click the "Submit" button.

- If you zoom to the specific location that you want to mark, click on the "Click on a map location" hyperlink. A "Click on map to select location will appear. Click "OK" and then single click on your location and a marker will appear. Finally, click the "Submit" button to post your marker.


INSTRUCTION FOR EDITING A MARKER

When someone creates a marker on the map, the following dialogue box appears on the screen:



Be sure you copy and save the link. This is the only way for the originator of the marker to return and edit the marker. If this link is not saved, the map administrator is the one that has to edit the marker. (I am the map admin and will gladly do this for anyone as needed as I have time to do so.)

Lola (produced yesterday) has been added. Let's see if this grows fast enough to make permanent.

Very creative idea, thank you for doing this.
I look forwarding to adding my future TR vert to the map as soon as it arrives in Minnesota.
