The killing off of the TA.mod.uk website, subsuming it into the new Armyjobs.mod.uk one, has made finding out about the TA much more difficult. In particular, it is much harder for potential recruits to find out for themselves which units are local to them. The ability to find out which TA units are local to one's area is vital to our ability to recruit. Several posters on various threads on Arrse have pointed out how hard it now is to get that info. So, bearing in mind that the new Armyjobs site has been up and running, and doing its destructive business (from the TA's point of view) for two and a half months with no sign of an easily-accessible "TA Near You" function, I've had an idea. Go guerilla. Are there any technotypes out there who could tell me how hard (or not) it would be to produce something using Google Maps which would perform the same function? I've read about Google Maps "mashups" which combine info from various sites onto Maps in a richer, interactive way. See for examplehere. All we would need is for the locations of all TA units and subunits to be plotted onto a searchable Google map. Not as hard as it sounds. For the newbie, the steps would then be: 1. Google "Territorial Army" 2. Click on "Territorial Army Near You - a Google Map site" (there are tricks I know of to get that new site high on the list you would get from Google) 3. Enter postcode 4. Bam - an interactive map with placemarkers showing local TA units. Place mouse pointer over them and you get info about the unit and a hyperlink to their website. If you know how to do this, PM me. I am damned if I am going to let that fcking mess of a One Army recruiting website knacker our internet-based recruiting. Are you with me?
