During the last month Adopted Neighborhoods has become part of the Map Creator. The aim is that the user can contribute with their local knowledge to accelerate the moderation process of the edits considerably.
How do I proceed if I want to participate?
- Select an area on the map, for which you have local knowledge, by clicking on “My adopted neighborhoods” button in Map Creator and then click on “adopt your neighborhood”
- Then use a rectangle on the map to define the area exactly, then press “save”. You can now see if there are edits from other Map Creator users in “Your Neighborhood”
- You can now click on the number in the yellow circle (total number of edits) and judge the individual edits (done by Map Creator users) by choosing “yes”, “I don’t know” or “no”
- You can also define several areas and you will be informed by e-mail when there are new edits in the “Neighborhood”
Your Geospace: upload CSV files
In Your Geospace in Map Creator you can now upload your own CSV files in addition to the KML, GeoJSON or GPX files. There are many different use cases for this.
The CSV list must contain two separate columns for the Latitude and Longitude coordinates (in decimal format) and the names of the two columns must also be named “Latitude” and “Longitude”. You can then name the other columns as you wish before uploading and visiualising your data.
You can also view the list directly in Map Creator (via the symbol with the 3 points) or change the colour of the dots in the map.
Good luck and enjoy the new features in Map Creator!
