Here are a few handy tip when drawing a route (Method 1):
- First, Zoom In by double clicking to where you want to draw
- Next select "DRAW" and click once to Add a point
- Trace your route by clicking once to Add each point
- Our map functions are similar to Google maps
- To move the map, 'click and hold' to drag the map
- Switch between Google map types like street, satellite and terrain using the dropdown (top right)
- Drag to Google Street View icon (yellow man) to see photos at street level
- Make the map bigger by clicking 'Full Screen'
- To Delete a point, select "EDIT" and double-click on a point on the map. Hint: Try Moving the point first
- Instead of deleting, Move a point, 'click and hold' on a point and drag to move
- Photos on your Walk & Key waypoints for directions:
- Add a photo or info (i.e. directions) to a point: 'click' on any point, fill in the form, upload a photo and submit.
- Point of Interest POI (i.e. a castle),
- To add a nearby POI, select "ADD P.O.I." and 'click' a point on the map, fill in the form, add photo and submit
- To add a new point to a route, select 'Edit' and click near the line between two points to add a new point
- If you've had enough and want to start again, select "DELETE ALL"...arrrghhh
- Please let us know if you find any bugs or run into problems at firstname.lastname@example.org
- IMPORTANT: remember to click 'SAVE YOUR MAP AND CONTINUE' when your finished drawing
Then fill out the rest of the form and click 'SUBMIT'
Method 2: Upload your own GPX file from you GPS device. GPX is a universal file type for GPS information
Method 3: Type the Ordnance Survey Map Grid Reference number for all key 'waypoints' on your route. To find a grid reference, use your paper map OR draw a point on the map above and 'click' it to display the Grid Reference (Irish Grid format) and Latitude/Longitude of that point.
IMPORTANT: again remember to click 'SAVE YOUR MAP AND CONTINUE' when your finished with any mapping Method.
Thanks and best of luck.
