How can I use Google to identify Stack Overflow users in a city with a reputation higher than X?

I can get a list of Stack Overflow users in a city by doing a simple Google query such as the following: Singapore

Any ideas on how to enhance this query to rank by reputation or filter out all ratings below a certain amount?

This should be in Meta Stackoverflow. – Mk12 Sep 12 '09 at 6:06

Try querying the data dump:

SELECT Id, DisplayName, WebsiteURL, Reputation
FROM users 
WHERE Location LIKE '%Singapore%' 
      AND Reputation > '500'
ORDER BY Reputation DESC

In this example, you're looking for those over 500 rep.

What happened to this? I would like to find a great home improvement person in my area by querying but I can't. – Carson Aug 28 '12 at 21:46
