What is a 'Waypoint'?

Follow

Mark a specific place or particular intersection along a route as a "waypoint" and then record relevant information. Four waypoint symbols are available to denote which way to go or how a place is of specific interest.

Any waypoints you create will be visible to community members once the route has been published.

There are two ways to create a waypoint:

First Option: using the Route Planner

  1. Select a set point (e.g. D) along the route in the Route Planner.
  2. Information will appear showing the geodata of the point.  Select "Create waypoint".
  3. A window opens in which you can add a title for the waypoint, assign it one of the symbols and provide a description.
  4. Select "Save" to finish creating your waypoint.
  5. The point will now be displayed with its accompanying symbol.

 

Second option: whilst recording in the app

  1. Once you have reached where you want to create your waypoint, use the add layer ("+"). This sits above the map layer.
  2. After selecting "Create waypoint" the geodata is automatically set and a window opens in which you can add a title for the waypoint, assign it one of the symbols and provide a description.
  3. Select "Save" to finish creating your waypoint.
  4. The point will now be displayed with its accompanying symbol.

 A waypoint is always directly linked to the route. You also have the alternative option of creating a point that is independent of the route.
