Route Editing Options

To edit any recording or route errors along the map just click a white circle on the red route line to bring up detailed options, including the ability to delete points along the route, and split the path so you can edit a route at various mid-points. You can then drag a point with your mouse/trackpad to an intersection or area you wish to move the route.  When routing on a trail manually, turn off auto follow roads to plot a rough path of the trail (zoom in for this). Next, select the Snap Route to Roads option. Any navigable trails or side roads will automatically snap. *Not all side roads or trails will be able to use this feature.

Route Details

To the left of the map will be various parameters you can enter such as the amount of time it took to complete and the date of your activity. Appearing onscreen to the right is a map toolbox where you will find options for turning on/off auto follow roads, showing elevation data, turning on distance markers, an option to avoid highways, and more.*Routing in some areas will require that you turn off the auto follow roads feature. Auto follow roads is dependent on another option as well, the avoid highways checkbox. Auto follow roads can be turned on or off after already creating points on a map for easier navigation and creation. Enjoy using the site to log and route your activities!
