Google Maps Integration

Announcement February 27, 2011

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We want to hear your thoughts…………

Firearms Canada has the ability to integrate Google Maps into every Free Buy and Sell post. This map would geo-locate off of the posters IP address and would not give an exact location except in the case where a user specifically requests it to do so (ie. a gun store or other firearms business).

For an example of what this would look like, simply click on the picture above to enlarge. In the example above, you will notice that the map is about 12 miles away from where our office is actually located.

This feature would assist users in dealing locally and it would also help weed out potential scam postings that originate from a location other than from where the poster indicates.

When making contact with a buyer or seller with the “Contact” feature beside each ad, the IP address of the person making contact is supplied along with the message. Having the IP map would be one more step to help eliminate potential fraudulent use.

As an active member of the firearms community I take my privacy very seriously. Although I have no issues with a feature like this, the staff at Firearms Canada would like to know if you would like this feature implemented.

Thank you.
