mapRoute updates The latest application updates for map-route.co.uk https://map-route.co.uk/ Mon, 08 May 2017 19:00:00 +0000 Copyright (c) 2017 map-route.co.uk Geocaching.com API V1 (major) Geocaching.com have released a new version of their Application Programming Interface (API), which has made major updates to this application necessary. Here are the changes which have been made due to API V1: Faster return of geocaching data. Your logs are now editable within the app. Click on the Image to edit. The process is then the same as adding a new log. Delete one of your logs by clicking the Image. You will be asked to confirm your deletion. Delete one of your uploaded photos by firstly clicking on the thumbnail to show the image and then clicking the Image below the photo. You will be asked for confirmation. As well as a total of favourites for each cache, now finders who awarded a favourite point to a geoacache will be identified by a Image being displayed in their log. Other non-API V1 changes include: Added What3Word support. To find a location from 3Words Find Place word1.word2.word3 The map will be centered on this location providing a valid What3Words are provided. To find the 3Words use the crosshair to locate the location and then select What3Words from the menu. The 3Words will be returned along with the associated coordinates. Several other fixes and enhancements. Please note that this release involved a major code change you should ensure you check any download files on your mobile device before leaving home. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2019-05-20 2019-05-20 Encoding Geocache search names (minor) Several small fixes and enhancements including: Geocache name and owner searches can now contain special characters. i.e. The Ship & the Needle Stripped spaces from Geocache Code search. These are often included in copy & paste. Geocache filters are now permanently visible. Moved several commands (which were previously only available via keyboard shortcuts) to the menu to help beginners. Changed Additional Waypoints menu option to be prefixed with Show or Hide. The Image arrow which appears after a cache search is now removed if the cache is deleted. Removed V8 from the title bar. V8 refers to the Bing Maps versions rather than mapRoute. Separated FIT code out to it's own module as I am currently working on it. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2019-01-06 2019-01-06 Sites of Special Scientific Interest (minor) Fixed Personal Note export, so it always appears as the first log. Configured Gazeteer data so dual language names are found without a wildcard. i.e. Abergavenny required a search of Abergavenny% as Gazetteer stores it as Abergavenny/Y Fenni. Now just Abergavenny will find the town. Imported all official SSSI polygons for Wales and England. VIP users can now display this on the map. Intended use is for planning Geocaches to highlight additional permission requirements. Select Load SSSI from the menu to display all SSSIs within the viewport. Up to 100 SSSIs can be loaded at a time. Select Clear Static Layer to clear SSSIs. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2018-11-25 2018-11-25 Select Geocache download name (minor) All priviledged users can now use Geocaches along a route. Made Settings->Geocaching Trackables clickable. This will take you to the Groundspeak trackable page in a new tab. Also the full name of trackable is now shown on hover (when cursor is positioned over the trackable name) as these are often too long to display. Geocache download will now use the active route name in the download name when present. Tip: Create dummy route and name it as you want the Geocache download to be named. Otherwise you get the centre point of all downloaded Geocaches as it appears on the map. A few bug fixes. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2018-07-19 2018-07-19 Bulk add Geocaches to Ignore List (minor) Privileges members can now bulk-ignore caches. Select the caches you want to ignore in the Geocaches tab and click the Image button at the bottom and the selected cache will be added to your Ignore bookmark list. Note: Because the API generates an error if you try to ignore an already ignored cache mapRoute firstly loads your ignore list so it can disregard any caches that are already in the list. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2018-05-25 2018-05-25
