Get on the Map

I’ve been brows­ing through the links of Boston Weblogs by neigh­bor­hood, this week­end, and noticed that there are a lot of weblog­gers in Cam­bridge… Per­haps Cam­bridge deserves to be split into neigh­bor­hoods, like Boston? (Where are all you Boston folks?)

Adam of Boston Com­mon is putting this all togeth­er, and he is promis­ing a map for all those sub­ur­ban­ites out in the hin­ter­lands. If you’re not list­ed, add your­self, already.

A cou­ple of years ago, I was inter­est­ed in cre­at­ing a Boston weblog ‘T’ map, but it nev­er got off the ground. I still think it is a good idea– an inter­ac­tive map that dis­plays weblog­gers’ loca­tions. Alas, I have no time…

If you enjoy maps as much as I do:

UPDATE: Well, looks like Adam has been busy this week­end. As not­ed in his com­ment, Adam start­ed the map: Weblogs by T stop. This is going to be fun…

  • OK, check it out:

    Wicked rough around the edges (like, right now, just two actu­al sta­tions, Cen­tral and For­est Hills), but the hard part is done — the image map (ugh, I hate doing ‘em).

  • Wow, man. That’s fast work! Was it rel­a­tive­ly easy to imple­ment into your exist­ing CMS? It seems like you have a lot of man­u­al edit­ing and mod­er­at­ing to do — but, that’s what makes a good com­mu­ni­ty site, I guess.

    I couldn’t imag­ine doing the image map… they’re always tedious, but I’ve nev­er done one so com­plex.

    Heh, I just looked at the source code for NYC, and it is crazy — all absolute posi­tioned DIVs, and stuff. Some­one spent an awful lot of time in Dreamweaver…
