The map presented by the Data Visualization / Network Map is very useful for programming codeplugs in areas we may travel, yet this map apparently requires a manual entry by the repeater sysops to add location and details. How can we encourage the map to be updated by repeater sysops? Any ideas? Does the live repeater database have any details that can be imported to the Network map?

You cannot require repeater owners to enter their exact location on the map. Owners can only be encouraged to do it. My opinion is that it will be in everyone's interest to have a complete and updated map but maybe not everyone's using the map. How about a promotion on the dashboard like creating a news article reminding sysops to update?

You can also contact the repeater sysop listed and ask him kindly to add his details. We will not enforce repeater sysops to enter a location for there repeaters but then also the benefit of some of the map features is also gone.

It would indeed be great to have as many repeaters GPS info entered by repeater owners. N5OMW,OZ7KBR: if we provide you with a list of the repeater callsigns that are missing GPS information on BM; would you be able to research their contact information and e-mail an how-to guide I already have prepared for Sysop to enter the coordinates of their repeater and follow-up with them ?

I'm not capable of doing that as I'm only a regular user of BM (with a big interest). You would be as good as me to do the above task. It just takes some time to collect the information and create the required contacts :-)
