Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am actively looking for a job with careers.stackoverflow.com now. My use case is "find all places that are not far than XXX miles from YYY." And when I look through search results I see only the name of the city and the name of the country, like this "Munich, Germany". But I'd like to see map (e.g. Google-Maps) near by to check out visually how far this location is from original search request.

I realize that including map in search result can overload user interface, but it might be good idea to include the map into detailed job description. Anyway I have to open the detailed job description to decide whether to apply or not.

I came to that solution when realized that I'm keeping opened google maps in spare browser tab to identify job places.

UPDATE: Adding some details by request in comments. I see two cases here.

  1. I'm curious about job location because sometimes it's not evident by small city name where it is located.
  2. If I look for a job in the same city I reside in, it would be great to know how far the new job from my home or from the nearest underground station.

Why do you care the exact map location of the company? I'm curious how a more granular level of detail is more useful. Would you be willing to share more specifics about your searching? – Nick Larsen Feb 12 '13 at 22:49
