Please add locations yourself, and then let's spread the map to many people and get feedback.You can view and edit this map athttp://maps.google.com/maps/ms?vps=4&jsv=314b&ie=UTF8&hl=en&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=205634553696378389883.00049c4092a4a11d1ddebWhat you do is add thumbtacks (called placemarks) and use the color coding system below:Red = Needs a rackYellow = Racks Needs improvementGreen = Existing rackphotos can be added with "rich text" format.Add comments!
