    There's more that's just off memory. I am NOT trying to make OKC look bad. Honestly I am impressed that my gut tells me downtown will be buoyed by the national trend into cities, and ride the storm around the rest of the state. I hope. But it's natural that stuff will fall off.

    Flatiron 2 is future development, not on hold. It was never expected to start soon.

    Canopy has moved to Bodyworks site and a new hotel is going in at Sheridan and Oklahoma.

    FNC is moving forward every day.

    Sycamore Square is moving forward.

    Dowell is already working on Dowell Center and everything else of his is complete.

    Civic condos are well under construction.

    Law Firm project in C2S is dead.

    Just did a massive update to this...

    For those helping with the map, this is a good checklist to make sure everything is covered:

    Is it possible to shift these to a different category or map once completed? It seems a shame to lose the coordinates and links on the site for projects once done.

    Default Re: OKC Development on Google Maps

    It would be nice to have a different color / category for complete, under construction and planned.

    Default Re: OKC Development on Google Maps

    We have Orange for u/c, blue for proposed(would proposed be planned?), so if someone wants to make one for complete feel free! How long should the completed projects stay on the map?

  9. Default Re: OKC Development on Google Maps

    I had actually added a "Completed Projects" category (colored light gray) some time ago, but it appears to have been removed. Completed projects could stay on the map pretty much indefinitely, as you can turn the display of entire categories on and off with just one checkbox, but we might want to standardize with adding a completion date either to the title or body of the info popup. If we do want completed projects to drop off, I'd say the time limit should be something like 6 months to a year or so...

    Also, how are we defining the cut between "Proposed" and "Under Construction"? Does a project flip to U/C when a permit is issued, or once dirt starts moving? My thought would be once actual construction begins, but what do you guys say?

  10. Default Re: OKC Development on Google Maps

    I went ahead and added the "Completed" category back.

    This is awesome!

    I did something similar a while back but it was too much work for just me to keep current.

    Thanks so much guys and keep up the great work!

    Here is how to add an image to the map for each project, which is easy to do and will greatly enhance the info.:

    1. To get the URL for the image (off the Urban Project Summary or from the wiki article; these are all sized at 375 px wide) , just right click on the image itself and chose 'Copy image address' to put it on your clipboard:




    2. Then, go to the map and click on the project. A box pops up and at the bottom there is a camera icon; when you click on it you'll see this:




    3. Merely paste the link from the picture into the Image URL box.

    You know, that has been an issue I have had. Since I'm no longer in Oklahoma, I can't be there to see if the projects have turned dirt or not so with the smaller projects I've just been making them show as U/C after a permit has been issued, but with the more high profile ones, I've been waiting for actual construction reports.

    I agree with you I'd wait until they actually start construction.

    You guys need to look into having only approved people make changes.

    As it is, anyone can change or delete things posted to the map.

  15. #65

    Default Re: OKC Development on Google Maps

    How would I go about doing that? I know there is a function where you can make it editable by anyone or only the person that started the map. Is there a way to select certain people?

    That is one thing that has concerned me is a troll going through and doing something stupid like deleting a bunch of stuff for no reason or the like.

    Click the Share button, then under Who has access, click Change.... Select your preference for how people can access your map - Either On - Public on the web or On - Anyone with the link are the options you want. This only changes how users can view your map. To change the Edit preference, change the Access: drop-down to Can view, then click Save. Finally, back on the Sharing Settings screen, under Invite people:, enter the user names or e-mail addresses of the users you would like to specifically grant edit access to.

    I'll go through sometime this week and add as much as I can.

    This is such a valuable resource and tool I created a page for it and embedded the map:

    Development Map - OKCTalk

    And for quick reference, it's now a drop-down selection on the Urban Projects menu:




    Thanks to all who have and continue to contribute to this project!

    There is some dirty movement on the south side of the new Autozone.

    I added the future commuter rail. This will be really cool to see come to fruition.

    What kind of timeline are we looking at for the commuter rail line?

    Default Re: OKC Development on Google Maps

    I have updated several projects on there to add pictures and fix broken links. PS, if anyone wants to edit just ask me, Pete, or Baralheia, the more people contributing the better. You don't have add pictures or even link. If you see something being built and can just add it to the map, I'm sure Pete, me, or Baralheia will fix it up. Cheers

    BTW, there is quite an impressive amount of construction going on. I want to see more on the southside though.

    PPS, does anyone want to see single family subdivisions or should we just leave those off? I have added a few notorious ones, but I can add everyone I see on Oklahoma City council meetings, it just takes more time but it's harder to place those in proposed and move them to construction or keep them categorized right as I don't live in the metro anymore and it's hard to know when they're actually under-construction.
