But who governs what is input into the text field? How would you plot an input of "Massachusetts" vs "Townsville, MA"? the only reason that i suggested the layer was that poor vroom
woudln't have to deal with some messy GD routine. (If a monk changes places, every dot would need to be rewritten.) I imagine that the layer routine would simply simplify! :-) I would keep the scale to about 100 miles per dot. This number would retain maximum usefulness while maintaining anonymity. Of course, that's not for me to decide, but I feel that it would be much easier in the long run (programming, how to use the map, etc) to have a submission image map where you *click* and you're done. I don't have any idea what my current latitude nor longitude are- anyone new would be discouraged from entering anything. Something would have to check the user's input. I still find a quick click on a world map much friendlier.
