I'd figure it be nice to see where people live on the google map, just to see how it looks like where you guys/gals live. Might give a clue on where/how people draw their inspiration from and whatnot.

You can find google maps here: http://maps.google.com/

I come from the town Bergen in Norway, so i simply searched for Bergen, Norway on this site.
Then i clicked the satelite version and made this link. (remember to press the "link" button on top of the map in order to get the link to your search results :) )

Here is where I live (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Bergen,+Norway&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=39.184175,76.025391&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Bergen,+Hordaland,+Norway&t=h&z=10)


I searched for a similar thread, but found none, so if there is one then I'm sorry if this is redundant.

Hi Njordys, I went to Bergen many (many) years ago, and loved it. Redrobes (a guild Software Developer) has a sort of google app thing (I don't know what it's called) where guild members can put in their location on google maps. if you look at the drop down list in the top menu (the dark brown bar) under 'Community', there is a 'member map' choice and you'll find it there!

best

Whoa! I looked at your street view and I thought it was RecklessEnthusiasm walkin down your street. You might have to check his profile to see his picture and then go pan across the street level view to see him :)

Oh, so i guess this was a little redundant then. Nice boardmap, btw.

Wow, somebody here has been to Bergen? It's quite a small city, so that was a little suprising ;)

Nice to see where you guys live. :)

Not really redundant. Under Community up in the menu ^^^^ there is a drop menu. The last is a home build Member Map. You can add yourself by plunking in your coordinates.
