Better late than never into a thread. We also have ovens in Malaysia, Thailand, Sweden, Bahrain, Saudi, and Grenada (off the top of my head).

Here's a question. Do you think FB should set up a Wood-Fired Oven map where you could post your oven photo and location? There is the other map out there, but we have not worked together on it, and it hasn't had much traction.

What do you think? Worth it? Would be get enough members to post their ovens to make it useful?

James - are you referring to the Frapper map? I believe all of the Forno members would participate. The existing map had a few of us on there - it just keeps losing visibility.

Hi Les,

I was thinking of the Frapper map, but would want to do better. :-)

I think I can use the same mapping service that I used for the wood-fired pizzeria map to build a self-registration map for home WFO owners. It would take some time, but I think I can do it.

What do other folks think? Would you use it?

Sounds really cool to me. I'd be on it all the time - though I love maps. Goes back to my youngest pre-pubescent days.

I registered on the Frapper map but it wasn't very user-friendly or accesible. I would certainly participate in a FB map.

Is there some way to use Google Earth? Or does Google Maps have this feature?

I think that we would all use it - or at least enough of us to justify the time and energy.

Thanks JW. The services are based on Google Maps, and the service providers add the software the allows users to add their own map locations, photos, comments, etc. Google added a programming interface to their maps to enable these types of services.

I will start looking at it more closely. It would be fun to see where all those ovens are located.
