Was thinking it'd be cool to know where folks are on Ragnarok, I started messing with some mapping tools and using the map from the Ark Gamepedia but I'm not quite understanding some of the API for OpenLayers. Perhaps google mapping API might be easier and less overkill.
This is just a proof of concept, and there are already bugs with the UI as I just hacked together something real quick to see what is possible, but you can see part of what I'm thinking of here. Will be more user friendly with GPS coords perhaps and different icons representing different things.
Any ideas for what to look at mapping API wise or whether this might be something useful? Before I spend too much time on this. :)
