The River Tweed is now plotted with Mile Markers.
New - Quick Links
Open a Paddle Point, choose Create Quick Link
This will then appear in your Quick Links list (on the map toolbar) so you can jump to your favourite places real quick.
Have as many Quick Links as you like.
More rivers and canals are now plotted - all with mile markers.
More to follow........
Mile Markers have been added along the plotted rivers, so now you don't need to go through the route planning/drawing phase to get a rough idea of how far it is between two points.
To view these, open the map, open Plotted Rivers from the toolbar, and choose your river/canal.
They will not show if zoomed out too far as it would just be a mass of yellow. Zoom in and they will appear
More rivers/canals now plotted :
The Trent and Mersey Canal is now plotted on Paddle Points including tunnel indication.
93.5 miles long
Image shows the Barnton and Saltersford tunnels
Paddlepoints has a new feature we have called Plotted Rivers. We are in the process of plotting all the major rivers and canals (initially in the UK) from source. Not only is this actually quite interesting to see where rivers start (even if they are not navigable at this point), but it also enables us to provide a useful tool in route planning/recording.
You can see which rivers have been plotted on the home page, or if on the map, open the Plotted Rivers, and you can switch multiple rivers on.
You can then use the new Auto-Route feature to plan your routes - watch the video to see how this works.
If you would like your favourite river or canal plotted, let us know and we can move it up the list....
When searching for a location on the map, you have always been able to enter a postcode, or town, but now you can enter an OS Grid Ref too.
For example, Holme Pierrepont is SK608389
This can either be entered in the search box, or added to a url such as this :
You may have noticed, when viewing Paddlepoints, we are now calculating the nearest postcode and OS grid ref (UK only).
The postcode should only be used as a guide though, as most Paddlepoints do not have postal addresses, but it can be useful when getting to the area or carpark for a paddle.
The OS grid ref though is bang on!!
Paddlepoints has had a complete rewrite which paves the way for many new features. The new version should be quicker and more responsive to different screen sizes.
A few immediate changes.....
Now the system has been transferred, we will start to release new features which we have been working on.
