Thanks a lot for your kind words!!!

Yes, and it is really beautiful because you can see the tracks reported by
all the volunteers that cluster themselves around it :-)

Not yet, but we will soon :-) We are working on it, hehe. Regarding your
question, if I'm not mistaken these tracks will be used to analyze again
those areas and see what is going on.
I can put you in contact with Michael Doser about this specific issue, he
will be happy to answer your questions.

Thanks a lot Peter! Let me know when you blog about it, so I can retweet it
