Little map with rectangular area with "Most North/Est/West/Southerly cache found" on stats page

+2 votes
How about adding a (popup-) map on the stat page showing a rectangle (depending on projection) limited by the longitude and lattitude of the most north/west/east/southerly found caches?

Interesting, I tried to use this query, with selecting my hidden caches, but the personal filter couldn't be inserted as it is possible in other queries. I already mention that I hope we could converge to have similar filter possibility in every query. By the way, it work with the multiple selection of countries!

I thought about such a feature myself and have created a Google Map of my own caches. I pinpointed the most NSEW cache co-ordinates and the "center point". However, drawing a rectangle is in my opinion not necessary and on many maps difficult to draw, especially, when you have been caching around the world. It will give curved lines instead of straight lines.

But having the NSEW/C co-ords visualized on a map could be a cool add-on feature.

Just an example how it could look like:

And with lines coming from the center:

+1 for this feature! Without the lines looks better I think. At what is the 'center point' in your case? Your home address? Or your cache centroid?
Well, it's not a feature yet, just my own visualisation of my caches. :)
But thanks anyway. "Center point" is the cache centroid, not home co-ords. I guess not everyone would want to display them publicly.
