If it's apparent that the map was created with GLOTTER (e.g. backlink to the original entry) you can also embed the maps in external websites. Just click on the link "Embed in website" which you can find right by every entry-page and paste the HTML-code into your website-content. If required you can customize the size of the map.
You can collaborate with other users and allow them to add placemarks by selecting the category "Collab" in the Edit mode. Please note however that the collaboration is only possible with users who are friends with you in your profile.
Send the Edit-Link to your friends and invite them to support you. If an user sees the following icon it's possible for her/him to add placemarks!
Of course the user, who created the entry, has full control over the content and can delete inappropriate placemarks if necessary!
"MultiMap" is a simple Collaboration feature that "combines" multiple entries on a single map. It works with all public entries and placemarks created with GLOTTER. Just separate the entry-ids with a comma (,) in the URL - That's all!
Your own entries or entries that have a "Creative Commons" licence applied can be copied and adapted. Follow these steps to create a copy of an entry:
1. Sign in
2. Open the entry in "Normal view"
3. Click on the button
Finally the entry can be modified in the Edit mode!
Just use tags by adding keywords to the according input field when creating your entry. "Tags" describe your entry - relevant tags that still exist combine similar entries and display them in a Tagcloud. Furthermore relevant maps are shown besides the entries.
e.g. Tags that describe a world travel with photo slideshow (separated by space or comma): worldtravel summer 2007 photos slideshow
You don't have to worry about the coordinates of a placemark. Just use the Geocoder-function ... which is really easy ... and search for any address or place name (and the country name) - you can also drag n drop the Marker to adjust the position. Try the Geocoder at www.glotter.com/geocoder (no Login required!).
: Open a photostream or a group pool, scroll down and click on Subscribe to ... "Latest". Virtually every Flickr-Feed should work - just consider that the suffix of your RSS Feed must be "&format=rss_200"!
If you activate the Logbook function, all information from your placemarks (title, date, coordinates, description, etc.) are listed below your map. You can keep a "travel diary" or create a "Geo Blog" and download the calendar data in the iCAL file format and import it into your calendar application (e.g. Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise, Apple iCal, Google Calendar, Facebook, etc.).
Furthermore you can take a tour ("Auto-Playback") of your entry in Google Earth mode (Google Earth 5.0+ standalone or Browser Plugin required!).
1. Open the "Advanced Options" in the Edit Mode and choose a line color.
2. "First come - first served principle" ... A line is generated between two placemarks depending on their individuell timestamps. The timestamp (date and time) of any placemark can be edited manually in the extended Marker-Edit-Mode (e.g. 2000-12-24 12:00:00).
Create a new entry and activate "Logbook". Now you can view the tour in Google Earth 3D-Mode (Google Earth 5.0+ standalone or Browser Plugin required!) by clicking on the Play-Button.
A tipp: If you add the exact timestamp (date and time) to your placemark you can even see the correct position of the sun at the specific time.
