Ok everyone, I've decided to go ahead and release this map. This thread will serve as the UrbanPlanet.org official development tracker for Greenville. You'll note that right now it's centered on Spartanburg... I made one for Spartanburg first because there is less over all development, I'm more familiar with it, and the amount of work needed to get it up and running was less daunting. My overall goal was and is to get one of these maps on each of the South Carolina subforums. I planned (back in October) to go through the Greenville forum and develop an up to date list of Greenville projects for y'all, but I quite frankly haven't had the time to deal with it (or Columbia's for that matter). 

My idea was to use Spartanburg as a template (which is, in turn, based on Charlotte's version of this map), but obviously to delete everything and make it all about Greenville. I think this is a very cool/useful tool to geographically track developments and link to the appropriate discussion threads. It will help lurkers and casual readers find the threads they are looking for and hopefully be something everyone can use. You'll see the way I have it organized is by color, but I listed each project individually, rather than by category, so that each individual project will show up in a defacto index when you view the map legend.

Anyone who is a registered user of UP can have edit permissions. You just need to let me know that you're interested to get it set up. Its a Google Maps based product, but I don't think you have to have Gmail as a prerequisite. I will retain access to it for moderation purposes but I will leave it in your capable hands to make updates. Obviously, UP staff will retain the right to boot people if they abuse their privileges.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

What browser are you using? It should work with any browser, though IE may have some issues. It works with Chrome, Firefox, etc. If you continue to have issues, please let me know and we'll try to get it figured out.

Also, I changed the default view to Greenville. Sorry about that. The data will remain as Spartanburg until it's changed.

The map in this article could be a good starting point for all of the planned hotels. I think there was a list floating around of all of the apartments/condos planned or under construction and then there are just a few other office/retail (Erwin Penland, corner of Falls Park Drive/Main St, etc).

I started making edits... I cleared out the project list, and started adding Greenville projects to the map. This is going to be a slow process but we'll get there eventually.

I asked our administrator and he said the only requirement is Java. My best advice is to tell you to make sure you have your browser software up-to-date and that you have java updated too.
