Quick start

Start with determining your goal. We assume that either you have georeferenced locations to publish or you wish to view them.

If you would like to publish your own locations than the registration is mandatory. Please fill in all the required fields in the registration form. If you are an individual then you will receive a letter with a confirmation link. If you are a representative of a business, that your registration will be confirmed by our administrator.

If you would like only to view the locations, the registration is optional. However, the registration allows viewing locations shared specially for you. If you are not a registered user, you will be able to view public locations and locations accessible by the link only.

How to publish?

Once you are a registered user and you have acquired sufficient disk space, you can publish your locations. Just press the upload button at the top right corner of the page, choose appropriate data type and the file or several files. Choose the proper layer name. A location can contain series of layers. If you would like to remove particular layer in future, you will be able to understand what you are removing. Press the upload button at the bottom of the form and wait.

How to view?

Once a location is published, it can be viewed. Just click on its icon or name. Use your mouse for navigation (Shift, Ctrl, Alt modifier keys with double tap can be used for convenient navigation with touchpad on a notebook; or two-finger gestures on a touchscreen device.).

How to edit?

Once a location is published, it can be edited. Click on the pencil icon overlay on "My locations" page in order to edit layers, access rights or delete the location.

How to embed?

If you wish to embed a location as an iframe, view the loation and choose the desired point of view. Then press "HTML for embedding" button.
