Online member mapping application

Postby dklotter » Mon Jul 15, 2013 3:43 pm

Good afternoon, I received a request from the Stake President to supply Ward maps with dots or some type of marker showing current Melchizedek priesthood holders with active temple recommends on individual ward unit boundary maps.
I know how to order the maps from church HQ, but is there a way to order or print them out from the online application showing only the above information?

Not with the existing tools provided on lds.org.

I could do that if needed in my own ward because I use data exported from MLS, my own geocoding of the addresses in my own database, and an inexpensive commercial map program to print the large-scale maps with markers.

There are several other ways to do this, or something similar. (Eliminating the requirement for printed maps in favor of browsing and analyzing on a personal computer would open up more options.) But every method I know of involves software in addition to what the church provides, and some effort to learn some other tools. The more computer skills you have, especially database skills, the better off you are.
