You can add your own routes to the map in a number of different ways. Click here to find out all the different methods.
Here we will outline how you can draw routes onto the map using the web platform.
1. Make sure you are logged into the FATMAP web platform.
2. Navigate to the area of the map you would like to draw your line and then click on the Create a New Adventure button (the pen symbol) on the bottom right-hand side of the screen.
3. Choose your activity type from the drop-down menu.
4. Select the Draw a Route option.
5. By default, the SnapTo option on the top of the screen (highlighted in the screenshot below), is turned on, allowing the route to stick very easily to existing trails on the map. If you prefer to draw your line freely, click on the SnapTo button to turn it off.
6. Begin by clicking on the map where you would like to start your route.
7. You will see you can now move your cursor to create the route and click to place the next point. You can place as many points as you like.
Note - You will see that as you are drawing your route, the statistics for the route will appear on the bottom left-hand side of the screen.
8. To finish the route, simply hit the Enter/Return key and you will see a finishing flag marking the end.
9. If you would like to extend your line further, you can continue drawing your line by double-clicking on the end-point, and clicking to place another point.
10. You can add points anywhere on your line by holding the A key and clicking on the line.
11. Even after you've saved your route, you can always go back in and edit it at any time.
12. You can delete points on your line by simply selecting them and hitting the Delete/Backspace key.
13. To delete multiple points, select the first point, hold the Shift key and select the last point. You will see all the points in between these two points are now highlighted and you can hit the Delete/Backspace key to delete all of them.
14. Once you have finished drawing your route, hit the Save and Continue button to add details to your route. Find out more about adding details to your routes here.
