Chimp & See Talk

Where do we live?

  • yshish by yshish moderator

    Hey, everyone! 😃

    @TED91 from Disk Detective has created this awesome GOOGLE MAP for the whole Zooniverse community to share where we live.

    There's no need to have a Google account or be logged in. You can place a flag either anonymously, or write your user name or real name to the flag, and projects you contribute to.

    For now, there's just a single layer for all, but more layers could be added and a different colour assigned to each project, or they could be separated to Space, Nature and Other projects, if we wanted, so you could take a look only to those projects you are interested in.

    Have a look, maybe you'll find your neighbour being hooked by the same Zooniverse project!! 😉

    Feel free to add your pin! 😉

    For discussing the map, visit the general Zooniverse Talk here:

    Because I have no idea how to work with google maps, I had to google how to add the pin - maybe this is helpful to others:

    1. Open 2)
    2. In the left panel, click the layer you want to use (zooniversity community panel). The selected layer will be blue on the left edge.
    3. Search for the business, address, or point of interest that you want to add.
    4. To add that pin to your layers, click the result.
    5. You can edit this location by clicking the pencil icon. The first box should be the location, the description should be your
      user name and/or which projects you work for
