Member maps are generated by looking up the location of each member's affiliation. If a member is not affiliated with an organization, or if the organization can not be found, then the pin will be marked in the city of residence. The lookup is not perfect, but it seems to place most people in the right place. Slight differences in spelling of the affiliation of members may place members from the same institution at slightly different locations.
This map only shows active members who have a public profile. To improve the location of your own pin, please ensure you have entered your affiliation, city and country in your profile. You can remove the pin by not making your member profile public. These settings can all be configured in your account.
If you have any questions or feedback about the member maps, please don't hesitate to contact us.
