The old map had a lot of issues and I took it down shortly after it went live. This new one is based on google maps and works much better

So far only two of us in the State of Delaware. I am the only Pentax shooter I know of (I also shoot Nikon) in our camera club of 250 to 300 members.

Very interesting and useful feature, thanks very much.

I can't believe that in Europe the nearest Pentax Forum member is 380km away from me and the only other one in the whole of Spain!

The map really brings home how sparsely we populate the globe. If an asteroid strikes, we are probably all safe!

Last I looked, the map shows only 506 Pentax forum members out of 73,569 members altogether (about 0.7%). The map doesn't show where the other 73,563 members live. In fact, if you extrapolate the same ratio of 2 out of 506 members shown on the map as being in Spain to the whole membership, that gives around 290 members in Spain.

As a GIS Analyst I fully approve of this new feature!

Now where are all my fellow Pentaxians on Delmarva?!

Technically I don't count since I was told the entire state of Delaware is not on the Delmarva. I live in Newark which is north of the Chesapeake & Delaware canal. I was told the Delmarva officially begins south of the canal.

Is the photo club you are referring to the Delaware photographic society? I am thinking of joining as soon as my busy schedule will allow. I have gone on birding outings with the Delmarva Ornithological Society and there are at least 3 other pentaxians in the group. We are not alone!
