You have map / site location, approximate GPS location, darkness ...etc.
The weather information is iffy at times epically during monsoons but most
weather sites are now.

If you like you can select what you like from this site and put it on the
Google site.

Guys,
These observing location charts are super helpful and interesting.  What
would be great would be if we could compile a list of sites and include the
following information:

Site name
GPS coordinates
Elevation
Darkness rating
Road access (e.g. Paved, gravel, 4x4)
Horizons visible (e.g. N 10°, E 20°, S 5°, W 15°) Comments (e.g. PHX
light dome south, parking lot for hikers, only room for
~6 scopes)
