The POI-Push pushes your POIs and/or the most important POIs along your route when they are within a "limited distance" of your route (default 300m). It's a great way to enrich your route and to get more information what you can see along your route.
Two simple steps allow you to get POIs pushed along your route.
Login and go to your route and select the Pencil (Route Edit) Button above the route (see figure below).
Select form the Edit-menu the option "Add places of interest"
After several seconds (sometimes minutes if it is very busy), your route will have obtained POIs along your route.
You will also receive a notification/email to let you know your route has new/extra POIs (so you don't have to wait). You can always check the routes via My Space
We recommend you just to try the default and see what happen. If you just use the default settings and hit "Confirm" you get the message that the POI-PUSH is activated. In most cases, you get the result in 10 seconds. When it's busy, it can take a minute or more.
This option is switched on as a default. It means the following: If there are POIs along the route already, they will first be removed from the route (NOT FROM ROUTEYOU!, so you will still have the POIs on the RouteYou-platform. They are NOT deleted).
This is useful if you want to start from a clean slate. Whatever POIs you put before along your route, the new setting of the POI-PUSH will become active and you get the POI-SET accordingly.
Suppose you want to create a route with POIs that tell something about culture. And for you "culture" covers the following topics: architecture, art , literature, film . Then you can proceed as follows:
In this way you can easily create a route that explains very specific aspects.
Look at this example that is made this way: London through cultural stories.
This option allows you to select the maximum number of POIs along your route. We advise you to limit the list to 30. But if you are an info-geek, you might like to flood your route with many more POIs.
The " Owner" option allows you to make the following choices
" Your POIs and the best of others (=default) : This option first adds your POIs (if you have any) , and then adds with POIs from others till you reach the required number
" Only your POIs : only your POIs are added along your itinerary
" Do not add POIs " : then no POIs are added . This option can be useful if you want to delete ALL pois . In that case select also "First remove all POIs"
Remark: This option is available with a MyRouteYou Plus account or higher.
Select here the maximum distance to add POIs to your route.
You can look at an area from different angles or dimensions: e.g. culture, history, architecture, geology ...
We created the POI-PUSH in such a way that you can add POIs based on a selection you want to make. E.g. based on a characteristic such as 'child friendly places', or a theme such as 'geology'.
Ofcourse, the POIs have to be labeled with this characteristic or theme or group. Read here how you can do this.
An efficient way of reusing POIs in several routes is to use the following working method
The POIs which are pushed are coming from the POIs available to RouteYou. These POIs are created by users on RouteYou, partners, or by ROuteYou itself.
Not everywhere, we have POIs available. But the system is growing fast, and you can help.
We select the best 30 POIs along you route, but depending on the area, there are not always 30 interesting POIs along the route.
If you don't like the POIs, you can still manualy remove the POIs via editing your route. CHeck out the video below
There might be no POIs available along your route in the language you selected. Or they might be of a very poor quality (not passing our threshold value of quality).You can always create and add your POIs.
There might be a few reasons for this problem
In case there would still be double POIs, it probably means that you have double information stored in the POI-database. Although RouteYou implemented a deduping-process, that process is only triggered at regular intervals. So you can better manually remove the double POI info. Read here how to do this.
The reason can be the following
