Remember this?

With bjango's permission I am taking over maintenance of this little side project, because I thought it was just too cool to let pass into obscurity. To start with, I'll be using the user markers from bjango's original file to seed the new one, but, anyone wishing to be included, please just step right up and say so!

As with the original, merely a city, or rough location, is sufficient. I'll put your marker in a neutral location, such as a park, body of water, or landmark of your choice (don't want any cyberstalkers being able to see right where you live...)

Also, for anyone wishing to be included but who have set "International" as your country on BOINC, I offer the following largely neutral choices:

90 degrees North latitude
90 degrees South latitude
Mount Everest
The International Date Line (somewhere in the ocean)
The United Nations building in New York City

I hope to have a first run of the new file within a week. Comments and feedback are appreciated. Cheers!

KSMarksPsych: You were. I have you in the new one.

Bird-Dog: Didn't know there was one before! The search in GE comes up as being near Middlesbrough. Is this correct?

Rod: Done.

Mike: Added, though Chum Creek is in an area that doesn't have a high-resolution image to work with. Instead of the lake, you're pretty much right on top of the town, as far as I can tell.

Bird-Dog: Found Norton. Your marker is in what appears to be a farm field near a residential area, next to a major motorway.

Chipper Q: Done. Your marker is on the world-famous beach. :)

Thank you. That road will be the A19, only about half mile away. Lots of farm land and tracks round here, nice for walking the dog.

The new Google Earth BOINC User file is ready, and has been posted to the Google Earth Community Forum. It can be found here.

There are a few changes from bjango's original file. First, users are listed in the file alphabetically, rather than by country. Google Earth has graphical search features that are more than adequate to show you who is situated in a particular city, state, province or country. Listing them alphabetically made it easier to search for a particular user by name. Second, there are the nifty new icons, in BOINC's unique font, which indicate special things about users listed. A blue "B" indicates a regular user. A gold "B" indicates someone involved with the operation of a project (i.e. an administrator, developer, or scientist, but not a tester or forum moderator). A red "B" indicates the founder of an established team of five or more members. This replaces bjango's original set of team "locations", which I felt were superfluous as even a geographically-based team can have members spread all over the map.

The BOINC project locations file included with bjango's original is not updated or present in this file. It is being maintained by another user and can be found at http://www.pcschmiede.de.tf/boinc/

Additions and corrections are sought and encouraged. I am especially interested to know of any user who may warrant a different colour icon (I have only two team founders, myself included, and only one project staffer) or users who have either moved or have stopped crunching BOINC, and can thus reasonably be taken out of the file. Comments and suggestions are also welcome. Enjoy!

The Google Earth view looks good, Raven.

Although I'm registered as "International," you can mark me in the middle of the duck pond at 39-59-40 N; 105-06-40 W. (Lafayette, Colorado, USA) Thanks!

You're there (blue marker, but didn't check to see if it was actually in Ohio); was taking a quick look this morning on an older machine (had to use Open GL, worked s...l...o...w). Saw lots of familiar names while looking at North
America from about 30 miles up :)

Kath, did you try clicking Raven's link, and then on the 'Google Earth' button from there? I think that's how the BOINC Users data in a 'My Places' file gets loaded, which has the names (alphabetically) and locations...
