    Well, now that I have time to breathe, I have been coding some changes to the website. There will be a forum upgrade coming soon but right now I'm working on something else on the shoot schedules.

    Now, this part it not finished yet but take a look at this map for upcoming shoots....

    www.3dshoots.com/shootmap.php

    I plan to change the balloon icon and when you click the balloon, it will open a window showing the club information with a link to shoot details.

    what do you think?

    That is pretty sweet Chris. Only thing that would be better is if the next shoot date was in the bubble also. I like it though...:thumb:

    The map may get a litle crowded if there are a lot of shoots that week, other than that, I like it.:rockon:

    you noticed that also??

    remember though that this is a holiday weekend so that may account for the low number of shoots......

    Pretty awesome :rockon: What do I have to do to get our shoot set up on there? Were not a club so to speak, but it is a benefit shoot for the Disabled and Youth hunters.

    Just click the Add/Edit Shoots. Register your benefit as the club name and then enter your event. It's really simple.

    OK, I made some more changes.

    Do you like it the current way? Need anything else?

    Can you make it so that a person can change the map from the next 7 days to the next 14 days?

    Other than that, I think it is pretty sweet.

    I'll look into that. Maybe make it with multiple options for date ranges. 7days 2weeks, 1 month.

    That would be useful. Especially in an area like mine where the surrounding shoots try not to schedule the same weekends. That way I could tell who was doing what when.

    Looks really good already though......:thumb:

    A related idea...if you can change the icons for the push pins, how about something a tiny bit smaller, but color coded based on how soon the shoot is?

    i.e. red pin within 7 days, orange between 8 and 14, yellow 14 to 21, and green 21+ days from today? You get location and schedule at a glance.

    Taking the icon idea one step further, you could even use a different icon shape for types of shoots: i.e. local clubs shoots, state, national....or ABA, FITA, etc.

    I use these methods in reports often at work.

    I'm trying to come up with something like this but I want it totally useful or possibly do a couple different maps.

    What I am working on right now is color coding based on the sanctioning body.

    Each of the following would be a different color
    Club Shoots, ASA, IBO, MAC, NFAA, NSGA, R100, etc.

    I think this would be better than color coding based on dates. I think the drop down for dates would be more helpful.

    But keep posting your ideas. Anyone one else, please post your thoughts.

    If you look at it right now, you will see some IBO and ASA shoots listed in the mix that would be a different color.
