Hi all, just a quick note that I am going through my Eurolights map (linked below) and updating and correcting cities one by one, starting at A and working my way to Z. I'll just be doing a few of these at a time. I'll post here with occasional updates.

At this point I've updated all the A's. If you've been curious about tipple zones I was able to add some pictures to the Arnhem pin. I also added some language to the Amsterdam pins to balance out what some might think is an overrating of the Walletjes.

Thanks Neurosynth. It's a great map and I reference it whenever I'm planning a trip to the continent. Keep up the great work. Thanks again.

Thanks IQ!

I've now made what I think are some interesting additions to Berlin...a great city.

It looks like Google may have banned public access to this map. Could someone try the tinyurl linked below and report?

Well this is very disappointing. Fortunately they didn't erase the map. And I immediately wrote it to a KMZ file, so I presumably have it backed up.

Could someone with a Google account try the following: First log into your Google account. *Then* try the link below. I'm hoping that will work and the Google people just want to make sure that users are adults. Or something like that.

(I would try to test these myself, but I'd worry that somehow Google would "know" who I am, or there would be something else I don't know about allowing my access and preventing others.)

Thanks for trying. Maybe this is the end. I could probably try some kind of whack-a-mole approach by moving the map from account to account. I might be able to redirect the tinyurl to give it a stable URL. Not sure. Bummed out.

My sympathies!

Maybe call them to ask under what moral obligation they restricted your freedom of speech.

(At least this one works, I just tried: United States: +1 855-836-3987)

I smell a rat. Someone must have flagged it.

Just to be clear, freedom of speech is a provision granted by the state; no such provision exists on a platform own by a business like Google.

Anyway, you mentioned that you have the data backed up right? So perhaps the data can be imported to another map service? I've done software development with map applications and I wouldn't expect it to be very difficult to do. Even if you could only make the data available for download to import it into an offline application like MAPS.ME, at least that would be better than nothing.

Hello guys

I am not sure why it would have been blocked, banned or removed because it's easy to find other, similar maps on Google.

For example, type in the search term 'der monger FKK map' and you will be presented with a URL to a map with similar content.

Hope you manage to sort it, yours has been developed quite nicely over many years and you should get a 'gong' for services to industry if you're a UK national.

I wouldn't count Eurolights as being dead yet, but I'm not optimistic. Companies like Google prefer to be silent and draconian, and appeals rarely succeed.

So I'm taking a few days to figure out what the next step is rather than firing off an angry note quickly.

Hope it can be sorted - I've found these maps to be a very useful resource in the past for which I thank you Neurosynth

Neurosynth, can link to or upload the KMZ file? I'm headed to NL later in the spring and planning to visit some new cities: Hague, Rotterdam, Alkmaar, or others. Your map would be very helpful. I've got a GPS app, so the KMZ file would be rad.
