Pie and Mash(up)

After a lot of head scratching and brain-fading have managed to add an extension to the basic venue mapping which I think (IMHO of course) is quite nifty. If you look at any city page (eg http://www.thursdayclub.com/london) there is now a ‘map’ tab. This lets you select multiple venues (based on the current filter) to show on the map at the same time. You can click on the
venue name or the little ‘pushpin’ to pop up an info box with the tel number, pic and link to the venue details.

Couple of things to note (as I finished this very late last night so it can be a bit temperamental).

– Not every venue is geocoded yet. Most are, but some places (like Hong Kong) are painful to get automatic geocoding for right now. Hopefully Google or Yahoo will extend their API.
– There’s an issue where if you click on the map tab before the page has finished loading the map won’t show. Click the map tab again and it should be fine. Will look into that.
– Will add a better filter device and allow tag searching for the venues.

Still, seems good so far 🙂
