Geotagging Your Pet Listing Just Got Easier

Following on from my previous post announcing the addition of geolocation information to the free lost and found pet listings we have been watching how people are coping with marking the location of their loss or find on the map.

It seems that most people found the process of manipulating the map to get an accurate location quite tricky and when I got a submission this evening which placed a poor lost cat in the sea off the coast of Cork, I decided it was time to take a look at what I could do to simplify the process.

I have now added an interface below the map where posters can enter an address, street or road name, suburb or townland and county and we will have Google try to locate that area on the map and zoom in on it which should take most of the trickier manipulation out of the geolocation process for users.

Hope it helps.
