Where’s Greg?

Written By: der5er - Dec• 13•05

I just realized I haven’t posted anything yet this week. What a tragedy! What’s been keeping me busy, you ask? Well, it turns out that I’m not just a DIY mechanic. I’m also a geek. I’ve been creating and perfecting a Google Map Mashup for work. I’ve actually got my own API key and I’m creating the tool myself. It’s a very cool tool. It takes a list of all of our cell sites and plots them on the map, changing the marker color (red, yellow, or green) depending on how that cell site is performing. Clicking on that site opens the info window giving some basic statistics and a link for more detailed statistics. Need to gain access to the site? There’s a link for directions, too. Want to see my mashup? Sorry, I can’t let this one out of the bag. It’s internal only, proprietary information and all that. I’m very excited about it, and I needed to talk somewhere. Most of my coworkers are geeks, too, but not as much as me. I’m the only web developer (and I use that term loosely) in the bunch.
