Eclipse Committer Map?

The Eclipse Foundation staff recently added latitude and longitude fields to the Eclipse Portal.

If you’re a committer, please log in to the portal and set those fields. If you don’t know your coordinates, get them from MultiMap.

My dream of having a world wide map of Eclipse committers is one step closer. It will be interesting to see how globally diverse we are using a visual aid.

Our map will need to be sexier than the Gnome map though.

    You aren’t posting your residency in this case, simply your coordinates. Plus, all the information you have on the Eclipse Portal is kept confidential and isn’t in the public domain. I’m sure when they launch the map, it will be done in a way where it’s discrete.

    Well, and how do I get the coordinates from multimap? I found my address and now?

    It is not obvious from the portal coordinate fields which format thy expect….

    zx: done.

    Michael: scroll down. The coordinates are listed on the right-hand side below the map.

    FWIW, Google Maps provides this too: find your location, then click the ‘My Maps’ tab left of the map, turn on the ‘Get Lat/Long’ tool, and click anywhere on the map for detailed location info. ‘Distance Measurement Tool’ is pretty handy too, as are the mapping tools at bikely.com. But I digress… 😉
