Where are you PAX Southers From? South 2016 Forumer Attendees Map

zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
PAX SOUTH COMETH!

As @Moe Fwacky and I have done in the past, I have set up a map for us to put our points on and discuss where we are from.

Map! http://fortress.maptive.com/ver4/paxsouth2016

For checking in your area: If people are in the same place very close to one another they sometimes get put on top of one another. Click on your own placemark and see if there is a "1 of X" with an arrow in the bottom right corner of the popup. This means there is more than one placemark on top of each other in that spot. Click the arrow to cycle through them to find people REALLY close to you!

To get a placemark added to the map
0) Check the map to make sure you aren't already on there! Many people submit early and then forget about it.. then they submit again closer to the show ;)

1) GO HERE: http://www.latlong.net/ and get the decimal latitude and longitude of where you want your marker to go. You do this by dragging the map around and clicking to move the marker. You don't need to make this your actual residence or anything that close to where you live, this is just to get a general idea of who is near who. I personally put in the center of the suburb in which I live.
Note: There are other places to get your lat/long, this one is just super easy and straightforward.

2) Copy the decimal Lat/Long somewhere, or write it down. Make sure you include any minus signs that may be present... this matters A LOT.

3) please submit this handy dandy google form. I'll be compiling the submissions about once per week... ish... into the map itself.

    I know PAX South is new and was kind of small last year. But just curious as to how far are people coming from to attend it again. I'll be there again, of course, but it's a no brainer since I live in San Antonio. ;X

    I'll be coming from North Carolina. This will be my first time ever attending any event like this and I'm pretty excited. I'll also be staying at the Grand Hyatt so I can be in the heart of everything. Looking forward to it and meeting some new peeps!

    I'm glad to hear people liked it! San Antonio works well because of all the things outside of the convention you can do, I believe.

    I'll be coming from California with a person from Washington. We both went to south last year.
    South is right around my birthday... So I hope to turn it into a sort of birthday tradition.

    I'm coming from Orlando, Florida but this is my first PAX. I have nothing else to compare it to in regards to other PAX events, but it seems like San Antonio is a wonderful city and there are lots of places surrounding it for food and other conveniences.

    YEE! That was pretty neat to see last year.

    As a side note, if you can make it try to join in on the pre-PAX pub crawl that I am sure will pop up soon. Last year was my first PAX and that really helped to make friends for the weekend adventure.

    @zerzhul - Thanks for putting this together! Very cool to look at the map and see where people are coming from.

    Driving in from West Houston (Katy, TX) for my second PAX South. I'm from the Tulsa, OK area originally and have 6-8 friends that will drive down from there to my house a day or two before, then we'll all carpool to San Antonio together.

    Really excited!
