    New detailed map of negril businesses and such is out

    A group of Negrilaholics, friends, and entrepreneurs got together a few months ago to begin a project that grew to be larger than they probably ever imagined with an opportunity to benefit more people than they ever thought possible.

    United under the cause of helping the children of Jamaica, these individuals exchanged hundreds of emails, donated countless volunteer hours, and walked the same miles of beach and road over and over again to bring the Negril Map Project to light.

    What resulted from this dedicated effort is probably one of the most comprehensive records of establishments, lodging, eateries and venues along the 7-mile beach and Bloody Bay that Negril has yet seen. And work is well underway on completing the project by documenting the West End Cliffs.

    The group felt there was a real need for this map - one which does not judge the establishment based upon advertising dollars spent or business membership level.

    They have made every attempt possible to include every legitimate business in operation at the time of accounting with very few exceptions, many of which are accidental oversights and will be incorporated into a future version when the West End is complete.

    The inspiration for this map was as a vehicle to help raise awareness of Jamaica's Children and the opportunities to help them by way of your generous donations, school supplies and personal care items.

    This map is offered free for personal, non-commercial use, license-free and without any warranties written or implied. Persons or Businesses may broaden the distribution of this map via electronic or printed means, however, the Map must be offered without charge or fee and unaltered from it's original form.
    Those who wish to become part of the distribution network should notify the group by sending an email to [email protected] so that they may keep you apprised of future updates.

    Presently the map is available at BostonMel's site at http://negrilinfo.com/negril.html and ohliz's site at http://www.alink.com/personal/liz/ne...pnegrilmap.htm

    The version of the map released is a public beta copy - a final copy is expected to be released when the west end is done - until that time, we appreciate your patience and your generosity towards the children of Jamaica.

    It's really cool, so much work went into, a lot by our own Sienna, who drove the roads and measured kilometers.

    If you plan to print it on a black and white printer, print this one: http://www.alink.com/personal/liz/ne...gril_Final.pdf

    ....it has been modified to print cleaner on B&amp;W printers.

    The Jungle is also open on Sat. nights where it attracts shall we say a more professional kind of crowd.

    Also it has recently become a great venue for high quality live music acts, especially on holiday weekends.

    Thanks Liz. However even though I see West End on the PDF file, the interactive map accessible from your website still says that the West End is coming soon. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/70402-thinking.gif[/img]

    Correct, the PDF West End is there but the Flash version is not.

    So use the PDF for now [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
