Empty page

This is the slide in panel for the empty page. This should be copied and renamed to suit whatever page is in use.

The first heading

The search is map driven and initially is set on a location in central Scotland - near Stirling. So double click or tap the map to drop a pin from where you want the locations to be centered. Once the pin has been dropped you can quickly choose your minimum and maximum distances along with the radius of the search. The radius is only as the crow flies so that should be taken into account on any search.

Available locations

Once you have selected your search criteria, simply hit the 'Load Locations' button. Page is updated with the number of start locations and runs shown. A start location can have several runs listed. Below the highlight numbers is the list of start locations. Note, that if O is still showing then try expanding your search criteria.

Viewing the data

Below the highlight numbers are rows showing each start location. The number of runs from that location is shown to the left of the row. The distance given beside the start location name is the distance from the dropped pin to that location. Click or tap the row to open up the map and summary information.

The routes all have a 'Plot' toggle box that allows you to show or hide a particular route on the map. This is handy on multiple route locations where some shorter routes can be hidden by longer ones. Each route is colour coded to make it easier to identify.

Each route has summary information about the route, covering topics such as the elevation, distance etc. There is also a 'Route Details' button that takes you straight to the main route information page. From there you can access maps, elevation profiles, detailed directions, pictures and more.
