Question:
How do I use the Google Map displayed on the Individual Page?

Answer:


  • Click on the Event Number pin to open the map in a new window.
    If you are using FireFox, you can right click and open in a new tab rather than a new window.
    On the map in the separate window, you can get driving directions to or from this location.

  • Click on the Google Earth icon to view using the Google Earth desktop application
    once you have downloaded and installed the application on your desktop.

  • Use the + (plus) to zoom in on the map and the - (minus) to zoom out, or you can use the slider to control the zoom.
    If the Google Map server returns a message that no map is available at that zoom level,
    then you must zoom out in order to get the map to display.

  • You can also click the Hybrid button to view the map as a satellite picture with names.

  • Click the pin number on the map to get the description, date, and location of the event.
