How to use your new map

 

Your map is all finished, but how do you use it? Follow these step by step instructions that teach you how to make the most of this interactive map!

1.

Just type in the unique URL to access the map. On the 'landing page' you can choose to 'Launch' to see the map or have a look at our Facebook page. You can always return to this page at any time by clicking the house icon on the top left hand corner. 

2.

When you have pressed the 'Launch Map' button you will see this page. It is called the base map. You can zoom in and out of the map and move it around to see the whole thing. Click the 'Find' button in the top right hand corner to get started. 

3.

A list will appear which you can scroll through. Choose to find out where the toilets are or where you can find food and drink. You can also find quiet places at the event or even places to sit down for a rest!

4.

When you click on something you want to find small markers will pop up on the map to show you exactly where they are!

5.

We also extend the map to outside the event to show you the best ways to getting there. Try selecting information about travelling to the event to see what best works for you!

6.

Click on a marker to see more information. There is a cross in the top right hand corner to return back to the map. 

7.

If you want to leave a comment or upload a picture of somewhere you have just been, just click on the comments button on the right hand side.

If you stand where you have taken the picture or beside the thing you want to comment about, then when you use the comment button it will be put onto the map in the right place!

8.

When you press the comment button you can look at all the other comments that people have made or make your own by pressing the 'Add a comment' button. 

9.

When you choose to add your comment, you can fill in your name, your comment and a picture (if you want to!). Choose a picture from your own photo library and then press 'Add'. 

10.

When the comments and pictures are uploading you will see this screen. Don't worry, it may take a couple of minutes to upload!

11.

When it has been fully uploaded, you will be able to see your comment on your device. Once it has been checked by the Mapfactor Crew, you will be able to see it on the map with everyone elses!
