new feature - My locations

 

This week I've been creating a "My locations" feature for the POI Factory. It gives each user account an area store a few personal locations (up to 50) and makes it easier for beginners to create their own properly formatted POI files.

Like other files in the POI Database, these files are built by typing locations into a web page. Users can choose to download as GPX or several CSV formats.

The system is currently running on a development server. It should be ready to move into production in the first half of next week.

Installed

I installed the My Locations feature this evening. This initial release is very basic, but it's a good start.

If you encounter any unexpected errors, please send me a note via the contact form.

Sharable?

Could those "my locations" be shareable on our profile page?

sharing

Right now, they're private to the user account. Eventually, I plan to expand the functionality to allow a user to convert them to shared locations.

Your thought of providing an option to show them on the profile page is also a good idea.

My Locations

As I stated before this looks very interesting and something I think I would want to do. I just saw the screen, My Locations, under my user name. I went in and saw lattitude, etc. Would this be something that you are talking about and if yes, would you be able to explain to me how to fill in my screen and why I would want to?
I am most interested.
Regards and thanks,
Alan

Added Features

We all appreciate the effort you and others contribute to maintaining this site with added features. My Locations seems like it would help a number of people. When I first saw the title I thought it was a place to save responses to topics. I keep finding contributors responses (procedures, references, etc) that I want to save for later use. Currently I copy them and save in a word file. It would be great if there was a place in the site to save these responses for future reference. I found if I don't save something I can never find it again in a few weeks.

Mike, I will have a chat

Mike, I will have a chat with JM about this and see if we can't make it happen.

I agree that this would be a great feature also.
