Stolen Scooters Google Map

Postby rob » Fri Jul 07, 2006 6:03 pm

I'm working on a Google map to depict the location of scooter thefts and scooter jackings (yes, they sadly do occur).

I've found info. on quite a few from scoot.net and local lists which can be seen here:
http://www.wmasa.org/stolen/

If you are aware of one that is not listed, please provide the following info:
-Year/Make/Model
-Color and other distinguishing characteristics
-Date Stolen
-Address (or nearest intersection) it was stolen from
-VIN & Tag (if available)
-Description of what happened

I'm hoping this will highlight areas where more attention is to be paid and any possible trends.

Please feel free to provide feedback as well. I'm hoping to add additional functionality in the future to allow users to add their own incidents and query by date/time.

If anyone's interested in assisting in this effort, please contact me.

that's what the markers indicate. i'm actually finding the location, then getting the lat./long. coordinates to use for the markers.

i don't want to put too much effort beyond what's there at this time, b/c it all needs to be database driven, which i don't have the skills to do myself.

It'd be cool if you could color-code the scooter jackings a different color than thefts and have a color key.

And whether or not the owner was a chick or a dude and, if a chick, if she has nice ta-tas as I'd be more willing to go help find the scooter.

Your ta-tas suck, that's why I haven't bothered looking for the LI.
