Some people have commented that they like viewing my maps with
routes, while others have suggested they would prefer just
viewing the maps and playing some armchair O, and would rather
not be distracted by my routes.
Inspired by a
thread on AttackPoint, I've decided to start drawing my routes
in Route Gadget rather than how I had been doing it, which was using
a photo editing program on the virgin map image. This will allow
others to play armchair O on the clean map with my online map collection, going forward, as well. Further, visitors are free
to use the Route Gadget program to draw their armchair routes
on any maps in the database and compare with mine, ignore mine,
or compare with anyone else who happens to drop in and draw routes.
As new maps are added, a link to the map in Route Gadget will be
provided alongside the virgin map. Right now, I just have a
couple in the Route Gadget
database for testing that visitors are free to draw on if they
want. I'm not sure how many from the past I will add in, but I
will take requests.
There are probably tons of bugs in the scripts that make this
work, and in the end, it may not work, but it seemed cool, so I
decided to give it a try. I think I'll prefer drawing in Route
Gadget myself, anyway.
