Bob, Your efforts look great - one question, do you plan to incorporate GPS coordinates into your COMPLETED version?

The Google maps are great in that you can select the Sat view to look at the places, as well as the 'street view' that Google has been adding all over the country...

My son happened to be outside his home in Sacramento one day when a Goggle Street View auto drove by - it had a GPS antenna mounted on top of a special 360 degree camera on the roof...some have called this new technology kind of creepy, in that anyone can look at your front yard!...I now have found that our County Govt. is using Street View linked to their property tax records as well...Big Brother is all around us, and overhead too!

For the time being, there's no plan to incorporate GPS coordinates. Too time consuming to translate all that info. There may be an automatic way to do it using extended features of Google Maps, but I haven't checked it out. I used Google Street View and Satelite Photo views to locate each point. If you go into a particular point and switch to Satelite View you can see the layout of the campground and have an idea what being there would be like. Plus, I confirmed most points with up to date info from web searches for the particular spot. Where prices for camping are involved, I researched to see if they were current and updated them as needed.

I think maps for each state following this template would be an incredible asset. I'm just not prepared to spend hours and hours and hours doing it all myself then give it all away like I did with the lists.
