Map Game Day Introduces My Stadiums

Ever count the number of stadiums you have visited? Is it 10, 20 or perhaps 30 or more? Map Game Day, the online mapping site where you can view, create and share interesting college football places, has done it again. Check out My Stadiums, where you can track all your visits.

Here's how it works: All of the stadiums are listed on the left-hand side of the site, with the map centered. Simply go through the list and click on the stadiums that you have visited, then check out the basic distance calculator on the right-hand side. Enter your zip code and it will calculate the number of miles traveled (straight-line distance) and factor the overall cost at an average price of $3 for a gallon of gasoline (left).

For an example, Richard of Map Game Day teamed with Dave of Project 119. Dave, as you might recall, is trying to visit all 119 Division I-A stadiums. The top map tracks Dave's progress, with his total number of I-A stadiums at 37 as he prepares for an Eastern swing in the next couple of weeks.

My Stadiums also offers the ability to embed a map into your site, which we did with the Project 119 map. Other features include the ability to save or email a map. Images of the stadiums are on the way.

Map Game Day has also provided us with several other useful tools, including the incredible 2007 recruiting map, the recruiting summary and the 2007 NFL draft map.

And remember to visit our great billboard competition.
