Demo01 - Pindown

Gå til indhold

In demo01 we see a map, that PinDown has constructed from 2 different things.
From images and from a csv-file.

The map shows some Scandinavian cities - some few with images and some with icons.
The markers created from images has text and links.
The markers created from the csv-file has icon shown in the list view and in the marker pop-up. It is possible for a csv-file to contain information for images - original and thumbnail. Demo03 (demo03A and demo03B)  is created from csv-files and yet you see images in list-view and in marker pop-up.

In the csv file is information for the population. This info is placed as a special information together with the marker type.
If you in the control in the fields for inhabitants in the from field set 5000 and then in the to field set 10000, you should see the cities/markers that matches this criteria when "Search" is clicked.

When reset (in the search section) is clicked, then all markers is selected.
As none of the images has information about population, then no images will be selected, when selection is on population.

If selection is on type (countries), then both markers from CSV and markers from images is selected.

Then try this:

1 - Open the Map-control, by clicking on the Control-button (in the top bar). Then click on top of Denmark (about middle of map). This puts the coordinates for the clicked spot in the map-control, as coordinates.
Then click the radius-dropdown (in the upper part of the control) and select 512 km. - and then  click "Go"
You will now see a circle with a radius of 512 km. drawn on the map, and only markers inside this circle is selected.

2 - now zoom out on the map, until most of Europe is shown. Then click somewhere on the map and click "Search" (in lower part of the control). You will then see the circle move and center of the circle is where you clicked. Now click near Scandinavia, and you will see the circle move again, when you click "Search". In milliseconds PinDown has drawn a circle, calculated which markers is inside the circle and placed them on the map and in the list-view. It is not a simple calculation as we all know that the earth is round.
If a map has many markers it will be more than a few millisecunds. In one of the demos where there is more than 40.000 markers, the calculation and selection could take nearly half a second.

3 - now click on the top of Denmark and click "Search". This should select markers in all 3 of the Scandinavian countries.
Then open the "Markers" dropdown.  You should see a list of all types, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
Choose one of the countries and click "Search". You should now see only markers for the selected country - and still only inside the circle.
Then click on "List view" in the top-bar. The view changes to a list of the markers actually on the map.

4 - In the Map control, fill in a from-value and a to-value in the fields for the inhabitants ("Inhabit").
Then click "Search". You will now see only the markers that has a number of inhabitants that is in the specified range of what is in the from and to.

5 - You can reset the map by clicking on reset in the Map control. The reset for the upper part will reset the radius.
The reset in the lower part will reset the selections.
If you click on PinDown in the top-bar, you will reset the map to its initial status.

6 - In list-view: Click on one of the markers "Google map" buttons. You should then see the location for that marker open in Google Map in a new tab.
Close the tab again.
Click on an icon or an image in the "Image"-column in list view. You will then see the map perform a fly to the location for the marker. In the center for the fly-to, you should see the marker.
Hover the marker, and information will be shown.
Click the marker, and a "Marker info" box will po up.
Now zoom out a bit and click somewhere on the map. Then click on "Directions" in the "Marker info". You will now see A route calculation in Google maps. The route is from where you clicked the map and to the center for the marker.
If you had the PinDown shown on a mobile where locationing is set on, you would  see the mobile turned into a GPS-navigation device, using Googles navigation. The navigation will automatic start from your actual position and guide you to the markers position.
This is what the "GPS off"/"GPS on" button is for. If used on a mobile device, you can set automatic GPS on or off.

7 - Click on "G-map" in the top bar. This will show the actual section of the map in Google Maps in a new tab.
8 - Explore the layers. In the lower left, you will on maps that is supplied with layers, see a walking man.
When that icon is hovered, you will see a list of kmz-files with a checkbox. If one or more boxes is checked, you will see the layer on the map. Drill_holes and churches is places. The Drill_holes will show a box with information when clicked.
The 3 "kommune" is areas.
Drivvejen and the railways is a kind of routes.
Try selecting the 3 railways and see how they are connected.
If you select the 3 "kommune" and the "Kirker" you will see that it shows churches in the 3 communes: Esbjerg, Varde and Vejen.

9 - If you want to send a link to a friend, where you will focus on a location, then this is possible by using the flyto parameter.
If a link to a map is like this:
Then you can make a flyto with the flyto parameter + latitude and longitude.
You could send a message like this:
"Just visited Berlin. Hope there will come no new war-monuments.,13.350116"
"Just visited Paris. Hope there will come no new war-monuments.,2.295080"
You can flyto wherever you want and on whatever map you want. There need not be a marker for that place.
"Ny Gothersgade and Gormsgade is an important area for some people.,9.856126"

This was an introduction to some of the possibilities PinDown offers.
Explore the rest yourself, and/or take a look in the help for PinDown (under construction).
