Default Member Map - NEED YOUR HELP!

I am making some time to work on the member map. When I originally requested postal codes for those who wanted to be on the map, I neglected to also ask for your country. I have added a field (a drop down) to the user profile for you to choose your country.

WHY, you may ask... well the simple fact is that there are multiple countries which use identical formats for their postal codes. The US and Germany, for example, both use a 5-digit system. Not all ranges overlap, but it's not possible to positively resolve a location without the country.

SO, If you want to be on the map, we need BOTH your postal code and your country!

(PS - UserCP --> Edit Details, scroll to the bottom. THIS LINK should work.)

OK, HERE is the first iteration. A few comments:

The ad at the bottom will eventually go away. Once I get the map set up, I'll purchase the no-ads option for it.

The map doesn't like @ signs in the primary marker tag, which in our case is the member name. There are some members with their email address as their username (bad idea anyway...) which will not show up. I can change those usernames if desired.

Note that the map is not dynamically generated. That is, it doesn't pull from our database every time the page is rendered. There are technical reasons for that which I'd be happy to discuss, but the message is that I will be regenerating the map on some regular basis, eventually probably weekly.

Looks great Jeff, but it sure is going to get a little crowded in some places!!
