||The Guest Book map has been updated (finally) and it has been moved to a Google interactive map with panning and zooming. Please take a look at it.

||Wow, you did a great job, and I love the google maps zoom in and out and all about. Thanks so much. That is very cool, and I appreciate you taking so much time doing this.

||It looks great! I'm sure there are many others who have not signed the guest book. I am a mobile watcher - I watch it on my laptop whereever I go..

||Very interesting Tom. There are a lot of Osprey-watching "lurkers" out there who never post obs or messages.

||Tom: A technical question. How did you export the Google map to your own website?
I have a Google MyMaps of Blackwater Refuge, but I want to export it to my own web page. I've been trying to figure out the best way to do that.
It has overlays and placemarkers -- so it's not just a map. I need to export the KML file and embed it in the web page, but it's the embedding part I'm not sure about.

||great update Tom, but I feel very neglected......... ;-(
How could you forget little me, who has been messaging for three years on DPOF. I live in one of the best places in the world on the west coast of Canada.
Victoria, British Columbia to be exact, which is the Capital city of British Columbia. Victoria is situated on Vancouver Island which is a huge Island, north of Seattle. Pam can attest to how great this part of the world is.;-)

Victoria, British Columbia is in the file and rendered as a red marker since the entry is from 2004. If I blow up the map enough I see the marker on something called Langham Court off of Rockland Ave which appears to be in a residential area East of the business district. The latitude and longitude used for the markers are only entered to 2 decimal places from a search of the city in Google Maps. If you have more accurate numbers you would like me to use, please let me know.

||Thanks, Tom. I got my API key and found the Google Maps API documentation. I'll give it a go.

Big thanks Tom.
Guess I didn't know how to use the map properly. Some of us aren't as savy as others here. ;-)
Rockland Ave, by the way, is not too far from me so am very happy to see this area on the map. You couldn't be closer .

Marie: you are welcome.
