To start creating your walk simply zoom the map to the start point and click on the map. Your marker has been added!
Add additional markers to build your Walking Map.
Use the ‘Undo’ button if you make a mistake.
You can use the ‘Snap to roads’ feature (Insert image here) to quickly and accurately build your walking map if it follows roads.
Tip: If the route doesn’t follow the path you intended, try dragging the route line. Also note: you can toggle this feature on and off as you are creating your walk.
Add the information to the right. A descriptive title and summary are very useful for other walkers who are searching for a suitable walk. You can also use the description box to add detail.
Adding points of Interest is exactly the same as creating a route. Click on the route to add a Point of Interest. You can drag these if they are not in the right spot.
Tip:zoom in to improve accuracy.
Adding a photo to each Point of Interest is a great way to improve the usefulness of this feature and will be appreciated by other walkers.You can add up to 40 Points of Interest.
The final step is categorising the walk.
Note: Your walk can be more than one ‘Type’ and may contain more than one ‘Feature’. In step 3, you can also add general photos to the walk. If you have a Picasa or Flickr account, consider linking a stream associated with the walk.
When you’re done, click ‘Publish walk’. (Insert image here)
