Mapping location of members

For trade associations, it would be great for companies to be able to indicate where they are located, so everyone can search for local companies.

then to sort and map companies by their indicated locations, would be phenomenal.

        You can use BatchGeo.com to map members on a Google map. Just export the required fields from your membership list to Excel, then copy/paste from Excel into BatchGeo maps. Send or embed the link to the map in your website. Users can search and filter by any attribute. It's easy.

        Members want a locator page with map and pins so customers can find them. My membership association is for professional with retail outlets. A Google Maps page app would be great so members can pin themselves. Allow members to add themselves but public can only view.

        I think I would be useful for admins to be able to reachout to a specific group of people in a radius. I have chapters in 4 different states but I have members from all over the country.

        There seems to be some people who would want zip code only and some with exact addresses, so an option box when the admin adds the map to the directory would be to choose "use zip code" or "use street address".

        Yes! So glad this is gaining traction. we are an island state and it would be wonderful for our artist members to be able to look at a map and see who else is a member on their island.

        Do it!!! (please :) )

        We have members from six counties and parts of two other states. This would be awesome!

        This would be an awesome option for our professional organization. Currently we have to manually create a map.

        I would want to be listed by postal code as that is safer than a full address.

        We are an artists membership organization scattered throughout the various Hawaiian islands - most members live in rural areas. Having the ability to see fellow members who are near to you would be a very valuable service to our members and help us meet one of our core goals-build community among craft artists throughout the state. Zip code info is fine (vs full addresses).

        My clients are clamoring for this and, for at least one, it's close to being a deal breaker. I would hate to see them leave because of this one feature... and would love to be able to tell them it's on the horizon for 2017. The functionality that they want is not complicated. A visitor to the site would enter a zip code in the (in our case) lawyer search box, select an option for how many miles away, get results. Please and thank you!!

        Yes, This could be very convenient way for students and their parents/guardians. Chose a music teacher near to them.

      • Lynda T.Lynda T. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Map of Registered Music Teachers would be a great idea. Nearest intersection would be the most helpful in locating a teacher close to home.

        I would not want my personal home address located on the map, but not everyone knows where my little town is. I would recommend location by postal code. It is safe, and still provides a general area for new students to find a teacher close by.
