Cyclists Sharing Routes around Toronto
Apr 6, 2010 @ 18:32
Biking Toronto’s Bicycle Route Mapping Wiki Project has made some changes that make it easier for people to contribute their favourite cycling routes.
- New “Submission Box” makes it easier to add maps
- “You Can Help!” section is simpler - more links!
- Wider Format – Bigger Maps!
The New Submission Box.
If you’re a Biking Toronto Member (register here), you’re now automatically a member of the Map Making Wiki Project too! That means you can use the new fun, easier to use Submissions Box at the top of the Wiki’s main page. (It’s invisible if your not signed in)
Your name will appear, not mine
With the Submission Box you can:
- Upload a map from your computer
- Leave the URL of a map you’ve made
- Request a map
(see details in “You Can Help!”)
A Better “You Can Help!”
The “You Can Help” section in the sidebar is simpler. With new links and more options, it’s now easier to add maps to the Wiki!
New Wider Format – Bigger Maps!
The sidebar is narrower in the new format – so all the maps have been biggy-ed up to fill the new space. That makes it easier to see whether or not the map you’re looking at – is a map you need.
As before, simply click on the thumbnail map to go to the original interactive map where just like at Google Maps you can zoom in, zoom out or turn the satellite feature on. You can even change the map – and save your new, better version to post back at the Wiki!
Thanks to Joe T for all the help!
