pilots-only "Map This" possibility?

Postby davidtg on Fri Jan 01, 2010 10:37 pm

Hi, all --

Is it possible to pass a flag to the "Map This" link to show only pilots? There are usually a LOT of volunteers and it can be hard to find the pilot planes; it would be really neat to have a link or a checkbox (or even know a URL parameter piece such as "&novols=TRUE or similar to add manually) which would allow me to filter to only pilots.


TIA & Happy New Year
:-D

You can deselect the fosters in the box on the left side of google maps.

Alternately, you can zoom the pilots map from the main page into the selected area to give the desired results.

I tried that, and got only half way through the list before my left wrist, tabbing through a zillion checkboxes, started complaining -- and Maps, meanwhile, lost its mind and blanked everything. Ah, well.

I did that this time around. That meant a lot of scrolling and hoping that I was seeing everyone. Ah, well.

I think I may just settle for pullin gup the route and then clicking directly on every plane down the left side rather than trying to spot them on the map itself. If you ever come up with a "pilots only" (or "volunteers only") option, please let us know!


Thanks again & Happy New Year
