GMap on a Trip Report (20) Top Level

  1. Find a Gmap link
     Here's how: There is a GMap link on every Trip report page. For trip reports, I'm going to use my trip around mount Callaghan. Click on Mount Callaghan Circumnavigation.

  2. Click on the link
     You are now looking at the trip report page for the Mount Callaghan circumnavigation. Click the GMap2 link at the top of the page. Now you see a topographic map. The default map is a scanned version of the familiar 1:50,000 NTS topo map published by the Canadian Government.

  3. Note the Purple trip line
     Note your map shows a purple line showing the route of the trip.

  4. Info links
     Note the small brown "info" icons along the route. Note that as you hover over them, you see waypoint descriptions.

  5. Note the Roads and trails
     Note your map shows various orange and green lines. These are roads and trails. Note that each one has one or more small green number icons along the route. Click on these to go to the road page or trail page.

  6. Notice the mountain icons
     Notice the mountain icons superimposed on Gmap. Note you can click on them as well.
