An eventful year draws to a close. We've made some essential Speed-optimizations recently and also revised the mobile version m.glotter.com to increase compatibility with the latest mobile operating systems.
Happy Holidays and a good start into the New Year!
As of now you can highlight entire countries on your maps. Automatically and uncomplicated. Just select a color in the Marker options to colorize the country in which the marker has been placed. It's really simple!
Here are some maps which already showcast this new feature:
We are happy to announce that users - who are friends on GLOTTER - now can collaborate on a shared map and add their individual placemarks. Just mark an entry as "Collab" and share it with your friends who are able to add their individual placemarks to the map.
The user who initially created the map still has full control and is permitted to delete placemarks. Have fun with the new feature!
As announced a while ago, the "Mapplets" feature had to be removed because Google does not support Mapplets anymore. The KML data still can be opened in your personal Google Maps User account, so the users should not experience any restrictions in embedding the GLOTTER Maps into different Web services.
4 years ago GLOTTER was launched and to celebrate this event, we implemented some useful design improvements. The "Description", "Videos", "Slideshows", the "Logbook" and "Map Actions" are sorted in an accordion and can be faded in/out which results in a much better overview in the Mapview mode and improves usability.
Furthermore the design of the map type controls has changed recently. In addition some minor code changes with positive effects on speed and compatibility in browers have been implemented.
Mapplets depreceated in the new Google Maps API and are not supported by Google anymore. That's why we decided to drop the Mapplets ("Embed maps in Google Maps") feature.
For our users not much will change because it's possible to view and store GLOTTER maps in Google Maps via KML. The KML link can be found below every entry and can be accessed with a single click.
