StackMaps - Interactive Maps of Stack Exchange Communities

https://johndbritton.com/stackmaps

What

Easily view users from your favorite Stack Exchange community on a map.

Why

I wanted to make it easy to browse the Travel.SE users by location, so I built this little hack as part of my 48HourApps series. It works for all Stack Exchange sites.

Who

Created by John Britton

Logo built to order by Chris Kennedy. Marker "spiderfying" by George MacKerron. Searchable dropdown using Chosen by Harvest. Google Maps, jQuery, and GitHub were used too.

    Is this by location specified in the profile? How do you get the exact location then? – Mechanical snail Aug 23 '12 at 4:27
  • Yes, the location is based on the profile. I use a geocoding library to place the pins. – johndbritton Aug 25 '12 at 2:05
  • When accessing I received the following errors: i.imgur.com/PiAJNg6.png – Steven10172 Jun 26 '13 at 22:06
  • Thanks for the note. This is probably a result of Yahoo changing their geocoding API. Pull Requests welcome: github.com/johndbritton/stackmaps – johndbritton Jun 27 '13 at 9:42
  • It's working again, I moved it to the Google geocoder. – johndbritton Jun 28 '13 at 10:03
  • Can you clarify in which order the users are plotted as one clicks the show more users button? – E.P. Feb 6 '16 at 17:54
  • I think it's based on most active, but it's been so long I don't remember. – johndbritton Feb 6 '16 at 19:52
  • Hi @John, if you have a moment, could you update your application to use the new version of Google Maps API released last summer? Right now, it doesn't seem to work properly. – Glorfindel Feb 12 at 8:34
  • I now get a popover that says, "This page can't load Google Maps correctly." and numerous errors and warnings in the browser console. ... Also, loading the app/site via HTTPS results in additional failures due to "Mixed Content". – Brock Adams Feb 12 at 8:40
