We have added another new feature to the HeliTorque site - a Google Earth Member Map which shows where in the world all our members are, on a satellite and hybrid map!

You need to add your pin to be displayed on the map, so please check it out when you have a moment - it would be great to "see" where all our members are spread out across the globe.

Come on everyone - add your Pin to the member map.

To make sure you put it in the right place you can actually zoom in on your neighbourhood with the sliding scale on the left side of the map, the higher you go the finer the detail. Heck I could nearly pick out my actual street.

So come on, take a few mins and add your pin to the map.

Cheers

Where ever you feel most comfortable SuperF! Very Happy

You can actually log on and change your location whenever you like, in case you move around. Smile

Did mine, and when I pinned it I was sure it was bang on. Went in close, and I've put us in a hedgerow 1/4 mile to the East! Shocked

So that's it then, that's where we live, Brambly Hedge. Very Happy

It may be because I've inexplicably ended up there after one summer evenings revellry, but I'm not telling, with my reputation... Rolling Eyes

LOl; you're not actually admitting that you Whirlies live under the park bench are you? Wink I understand though, helicopters are expensive, that's why we're in the hedge! Very Happy

As for helipads...well I might buy one of those Robinson portable(?) helipads and put it on our roof, trouble is, I don't know how we'd get up to it or down from it. Crying or Very sad

I hope more Torquers put their pins in though, it'll be fun to see how many other hedgerow or park-bench dwellers there are on here!

This is great! My pin is in my front yard. I thought about putting it at the office, but I was afraid I'd be "stuck" there more than I already am. I

Thanks. It's quite an honor!

Why are you working on a Saturday night? Shouldn't you and Mark be out enjoying yourselves? Or are you recovering from a St. Patrick's Day that was too good to you?

Under instruction (from a forceful WG) I went to add my pin. It assumed I was a persona non grata & told me I could view but to place my pin I'd have to Log In (I already was) - and it assumed I was a new user..
I did get to see the nice West of Sheffield and north of Fulwood where I am, there is already a Fox House! Must be me then.. Funny thing though, it's in the wrong place - both for the REAL Fox House et ma maison aussi.. Maybe I'll have to re-register to be recognised?

Hi FF,

What do you mean? You have to click the "My Location" link to add the pin, then you find your area, click on the map, so a red pin appears, and then you have to click the "Save My Location" link.

You don't need to re-register. The labels and place names on the map come from Google Earth. They have nothing to do with the links we put in from this site.
