Might as well mark out most of Oregon & Washington. You can't throw a rock around there without hitting a microbrewery.

Unless you're explicitly throwing the rock at a moving train.

Update: Added data for Colorado, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota recently. I also added a map preview on the initial post. I also found out that each layer in maps has a limit as to the amount of data points it can contain. Luckily there are 3 layers in the free version which "should" fit all of the directory. New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Texas will be quite a few though. With that being said, if the map continues to be successful I will throw some money into the pro version to get more layers. That way I can put different types of employment on different layers (which would be nice since you can hide layers).

As far as the discussion on listing how many actuaries work where, it would be of little hassle for me to mark places with 10+ actuaries (listed in the directory). I'm assuming these places will have openings on a regular basis and may be a good starting point for entry-level candidates. Does anyone think a different number would be a better reference? 15, 20+?

Any other feedback is appreciated!

-Riley
