The FRC Teams of 2012 (Google Maps)

FRC Teams: https://www.google.com/fusiontables/...z=2&t=1&l=col2
FTC Teams: https://www.google.com/fusiontables/...z=2&t=1&l=col0

(Unfortunately Google Maps doesn't support overlapping points very well, so you can only see one team from each city)

Re: The FRC Teams of 2012 (Google Maps)

Neat. I don't see 696, but I wonder if the dot is in the same place as 589.

Yeah, there wasn't much I could do about locations that have multiple teams associated with them.

Re: The FRC Teams of 2012 (Google Maps)

Finally!

I have been dying for a resource like this. I think it's shameful that there isn't a map like this on the USFirst website for FRC, FTC and FLL teams. I've been trying to get my nieces and nephew exposed to FIRST, and having a terrible time figuring out what teams might be closest to them. Thanks so much for putting this together.

Great work, John!

Would you mind sharing the data set/KML you used for this? I've been wanting to create a similar demo using Cesium.

Was this generated manually or is it database driven?

If the latter, I assume the code is currently displaying the markers on the geographical center of the town/city/area. When displaying the data, have the code check if any other teams are from that same city; if so, add a small offset (a few hundred meters) to the display coordinates.

You could also create a geometric function on where to offset the team markers based upon the number of teams that need to be offset, almost like where the dots are on a pair of dice. If pursuing this option, be sure to leave the function open ended (have it automatically continue creating points), as there are some huge cities (both in population and geographic area) that have a large number of teams.

Re: The FRC Teams of 2012 (Google Maps)

This is pretty cool! Did you just take a list of current teams and plot them out one by one? I feel like this would take a few weeks at least

Have you checked out this page?
http://www.usfirst.org/whatsgoingon

Shows all FIRST programs and events, so if they're not at the high school age yet you can still track down some FLL teams.

I suppose it would be a fair bit more work to track down addresses wouldn't it?
That's unfortunate though... Hides a good 25 teams between Toronto and Mississauga in Ontario. Really cool visualization of the spread of the teams around the world though!

I parsed this into a CSV (Needed city, state, and country to be in the same column) and then imported it into a Google Fusion table.

Google recognizes the last column as geographical data and allows you to visualize it that way.

That is correct. Google Earth has the ability to expand overlapping points if you click on them, but unfortunately Google Maps does not. There is a custom Javascript plugin for it that would do the job, but that would require me to have my own hosting option.

Are there really no teams in South Dakota?

EDIT:
Also most of the Austin area teams are missing
