WFN launches new World Footy Atlas

Site

worldfootynews.com has unveiled its new World Footy Atlas. The new Atlas makes use of Google Maps and displays a small icon at each club or league location. Users can click on the icon to bring up the organisation's web address (if available), and the map automatically centres on the location too. You can use the zoom feature at the left of the map to have a look at the clubrooms or ground they generally play at, toggling between map, satellite image or hybrid of both. Please note a "feature" of the Google Maps is that to do a large zoom step and keep the map centred it is best to keep the info bubble open.

Of course, any such tool is only as good as the data in it, so we welcome (and need) submissions from Australia and around the world. We need your Australian Football club or league's name, web address and location (such as clubrooms, headquarters or usual field for playing or training).

Location should be in latitude and longitude, to 4 decimal places. You can use the map to find your location - when you are satisfied you're centred over it, use the coordinate readout below the map. Google Earth is another method - under Tools / Options / 3D View set the "Show Lat/Long" to Decimal Degrees. Send your information to us by email or login to WFN and add a comment to this story, and we will periodically update our database. Note that currently we are only displaying locations that also have associated websites, but if you do not have a website for the organisation you can still submit the details as we will build an equivalent database allowing that also.

Initially we have mainly entered some Australian clubs and some from the BARFL as their website provided the initial inspiration and their website administrator kindly provided some initial data. Over time we hope this will become a great tool for seeing the spread of Australian Football across the world.

Update 10 Dec 2007 - Our Atlas has been tested and should work under Internet Explorer 7, Firefox and Safari. It is not fully compatible with Internet Explorer 6.

The above clubs, Burnaby in Canada and the Auckland sides have all been added. It's interesting to switch to hybrid and see the different kinds of fields used - such as combined Rugby pitches in Burnaby, and similar as well as traditional cricket/footy ovals in New Zealand.

Next batch of updates will be this weekend, hopefully we'll get all of Canada
and the rest of the European ones in before next week.

Zooming down on Farum in Denmark is cute - you can actually make out the oval markings and goals / behinds I think. Judging from the scale, is the ground fairly small? The arcs normally at 50m look like about 20m from the Google Map scale.

Everyone else, keep the links/coords coming.

Ian can reply, but I will too.

The Farum ground isnt small as it measures around 145-150m in length and 100-105m in width. The arc is to my knowledge usually drawn at 35 or 40 meters.

Any specific reason why North Copenhagen Barracudas are not on the danish map?

Authored by: Aaron Richard on Thursday, November 08 2007 @ 09:41 PM ACDT

I'm not 100% sure. I put the information in for both NC and the Crocs, but NC
aren't appearing. It could be that I need to change the coordinates for one of
them slightly so they aren't overlapping.

I'll see if I can fix it on the weekend.

Yep, that looks like the reason - the flags are right on top of each other. I've separated them a bit now, but it is a difficulty - how to best show 2 clubs when they share a ground.

US clubs have been quiet - would love to hear from you and any others - Aussie clubs included.

I guess if you want two different locations, the this can also be used for the Crocs.

latitude 55.7018 and longitude 12.5694

This is where they have training during the season. They only play games at our ground.

Done, thanks Niels. The Falun link points at the club information page for the
time being, I'll switch it when they get their own website.

I've also updated all the web addresses for the Swedish clubs while I was at it,
should all be up to date now.

Updated the NDJAFL link and added to the map, although can you check those lat/long numbers - not sure they were exactly right.

Great to see your local product Scott Fleming doing so well.

Thanks mate. A bunch of club links fell off the map when we recategorised all our links a while back, looks like some of the New Zealand ones need to be checked/re-entered.

Thanks Jens, I've added Randers and re-added Arhus, whose link I think disappeared from the map by accident when we cleaned up our links a few months back.
