Saturday, April 11, 2015 : Interactive maps are back !


Hello all !


Interactive maps are back, even better than before ! This is the first batch, covering our trip in the West in August 2010 and the first four days of our Spring 2013 trip on the East Coast.


Maps work roughly like they used to :


  • To display a map, click on the roadmap icon  roadmap us

 

  • To zoom a map in or out, you can use your mouse thumbwheel or the zoom control, on the left side of the map :

  • You can move a map with your mouse, or with the arrows in the upper left corner of the map :

  • Click on the icons. They will show you may details about our trips : hotels, travel, visits, and even Google Map Street Views.

Some routes pass on roads closed in winter, like in Acadia or Yellowstone, or on interrupted roads, like US-89 near Page, AZ. They are mentioned by a warning icon attention. Click on it, it will tell you its secrets.

 

The next batch of maps, May 27 to June 13, 2013, should be ready in a few weeks, when I'm done playing with Zh Googlemap.

 

We are still preparing our next trip, August 27 to September 24, 2015. The roadmap has changed a little, with a few modifications and new hotel reservations. It can be seen here :

Have fun on the site, and see you soon !
