BioStar has quite grown (see Helping BioStar grow), and was wondering which users live in my area (Stockholm, Sweden). Is it possible to plot all users onto a Google Map?

We wait for Neil to put in his answer, so that we can all upvote his great blog post! (IMHO)

I looks (thankfully) like you must be a moderator to harvest other users' IP addresses.

I'm so glad that you asked this question :-)

See the blog post and the Github repo.

And no, you don't have to vote up this answer; perhaps it should be community wiki?

What happens if more than one person lives in a particular place?

good thing i told nobody in my lab about biosar! ;-) did you include all the users, or only from a certain reputation/regularity?

@dmeu: I put all the users.

Actually... I just realized I'm not the Stockholm dot :) I'm in a sunny Portugal :)

I saw it yesterday using the non-anonymized/private map. It is wrong ?

I guess I'm not there because I hadn't entered my location info yet in my biostar profile?

You've been mapped in Oslo from your last IP. node id2272293.

So there are 8 nodes on that single pin. Is that the 'resolution' you get?
