Due to large number of downloads, I will be temporarily disabling downloading of gpx files. I will re-enable this feature once I have a better way of managing the bandwidth.

Introducing the new Global Map feature

Posted on 2015-11-01 14:45:27 by daruthe

After getting a little frustrated with no being able to see a bigger picture of locations sometimes, I decided that I needed something more dynamic and on a grander scale.

Inspired by office/store locators, I set myself to the task and came up with what I'm toting as the Global Map.

It's not perfect yet, it takes a few seconds to load the locations once you stop moving around or zooming.

All locations will be viewable once you zoom right on in (for those so inclined at zoom level 15).

I am aware that it behaves a little odd when you are zoomed almost all the way out - I will fix this once I find out why Cool

Unallocated VIC locations have now all been allocated

All the Victorian locations have all been assigned to a region. I had to use some 'creative license' when assigning some of them in the part of VIC that I've been referring to as the 'Eastern Wilderness'. If anybody wants to offer better regions for some of those spots I am more than willing to make the adjustments.

Queensland will be my next target, with Tasmania to follow.

Next on the schedule will be Victoria
