View Open Source Sun Tracking / Heliostat Project User Location Map in a larger map
I have started an open collaboration map in Google Maps for the Open Source Sun Tracking / Heliostat Project. The open collaboration feature allows people to add a placemark to signify that they are making good use of the project. If you are one such individual, please feel free to add your location to the map. Doing so helps encourage other people to join the project.
There are two ways that you can add your location to the map.
The first way to add your location is to just leave your (approximate if you prefer) location in a comment on this page and I’ll add it to the map as soon as I’m able.
The second way assumes you have a Gmail account. If you have a Gmail account and are signed in, you can edit the map yourself by doing the following.
1. Go to this link. Open Source Sun Tracking / Heliostat Project User Location Map
2. Navigate (or search) to your location on the map.
3. Click the edit button on the left side of the page. (Shown in the below image)
4. After the edit button has been clicked, you should see three new buttons show up at the top left of the map. Click the “Add a Placemark” button which looks like a blue balloon in the middle.
5. With the Add a placemark button active, click on your location on the map.
6. After your location has been selected, a dialog box will pop up for you to add in your details. You can put whatever you want here really, but I used “Gabriel’s Heliostat Project” for the title and left the description blank.
7. After you’ve added your info (and you’re certain you haven’t accidentally changed anyone else’s) just hit the save button on the left side of the screen to finish.
That’s all there is to it. Thanks for you help!
