Searching for places of interest (POIs)

Table of contents


Using the search module to find a place of interest

Go to the places of interest search page via the main menu > find place of interest.

The Filter pop-up

If you go to the places of interest search page, a pop-up with all the filter options appears immediately.

Active filters

As soon as you activate a filter, the results in the background (list + map) are adjusted. You do not have to click on a 'confirm' button first. The active filters appear in a clear list at the top of the pop-up. You can also easily delete specific or all filters there.

If you have closed the pop-up by clicking next to it or clicking the 'Show places of interest' button, you can activate it again via the Filter button at the top. The red dot on top of the button indicates that filters are active. The number in the red dot indicates how many filters are active.

The filter options

By selecting the desired filters, the system will help you find the right route. 

Once you have set all your filters, you can view the results using the "Show Places of interest" button at the bottom.

The search results

At the bottom of the Filter pop-up is a button showing how many POIs meet your filter conditions. You can visualize these by clicking on the button. Or if you click next to the pop-up, you can immediately view the results.

The list

On the left you get a list view of the search results. At the top it is always stated how many POIs have been found in the selected map area

Sort results

Here you have the option to sort the found routes according to different criteria:

Concise view

The list view provides a visual summary of each POI: type, title, image, author, score and the start of the description. You can access the full description by clicking the info icon   on the picture.

Quickly finding your own places of interest

Discover how to quickly find your places of interest with the options below. Once you’ve made your selection, zoom to the preferred area. You can rely on the map to act as a filter. Click the place of interest in the list or on the map* to go to the location page. From there, you can add text or a picture or edit your text.

*If you use the map, just click the link in the description box that appears when you click a POI.

Option 1: MyRouteYou

  1. Log in
  2. Use your personal menu  0be47b7f1d37cc0646d859920597136a_9f46d24 to go to the MyRouteYou page. A sub-tab Places of Interest is located under ‘My home’. Click to get an overview (list + map) of only your places of interest.

Option 2: search module filters

  1. Log in
  2.  Go to Search for a place of interest from the main menu.
  3. Click the ‘Filters’ button and scroll to Author. Now you can filter by a particular author, e.g. you or someone else. As soon as you start typing in the search field, the system automatically generates a list that matches your search term. 

Desktop versus smartphone

The map and search module are side by side in desktop mode. Tablet and smartphone screens, which are smaller, don’t provide enough space for that. For that reason, small screens display a ‘Show map’ button  at the top of the search module and POI list below the search field and next to the filter button. Use it to activate the map. On the map, the ‘Show list’ button  is displayed on the top left. You can use this to return to the search module and POI list. The map also displays an additional icon  above the map feature icons; it can be used to turn on the filter module from the map without having to display the POI list. Aside from these differences, all other features are the same.
