Geographical Locations
« on: November 17, 2006, 08:10:02 AM »
I about a week to 10 days behind on getting my most recent emails and communications up the the website due to other commitments.  I hope to catch up over this weekend. It heartbreaking reading all the e-mail I get - survival rates are not very high.

I also plan to start a page where I can keep track of cases by location and year so we can show which areas of Canada and the US people should be educated about Blastomycosis. I actually might do it in tabular form and include if the dog or person recovered. I'm sure I'll need help from you all for this feature.

I really think this would be a great idea!!!
I know that in Milwaukee there has been a ton of cases in dogs now.
Most people seem to think that they could never get it though.

Dirbike (coon-hound) lives near Muncie, central Indiana - we live in a flood plain on Killbuck Creek. Two ponds, lots of straw and mulch, wet forest land. Great vet: Dr. Darren L. Dell, Northwood Veterinary Hospital.
Hope you get a good response- so many times the patients do more research than the drs. The drs. can learn alot from people like you.
Thanks, Lisa-

Hello Lisa,

I agree with you in ref. to providing geophysical locations of incidents. It is most important.

Check http://www.thompsonbd.com/guestmap.php

The  script would likely work great for your site, it allows visitors to zoom to their location then double click on Google Maps to add a placemark with comments.

It utilizes MySQL for the database, Feel free to email me if you you would like help with installing or customizing it for your site.

I have recently started a survey and location db, its still in its initial stages of development.

With hopes more geographical/survey/location dbases will start to appear on the Net and finding a means to combine them would be fantastic.

Can we revive this concept?  We have so many members now if we include their hometowns we might have some interesting data.  Clicked on the jpwade link but it isn't active.
