What is the RouteViewer?

The RouteViewer is the detailed, interactive representation of a route. 

Check out this example.

The components of the RouteViewer

A route page consists, on the one hand, of a map with the route's trajectory and possibly linked places of interest. In addition, the RouteViewer also includes an informative section with substantive and practical information about your route as well as access to functionality to continue working on your route. The map view is on the right, the informative section on the left.

1/ The map

2/ The informative section

This consists of several items that you can open and close except for the summary information.

A. The summary information

Here you get a visual representation of:

B. Route information

C. Statistics

Here you get some basic statistics of the route:

D. Places of interest

Here you get a list of the places of interest associated with your route. This list appears in the order in which you encounter them along the route.

Thanks to the handy button   you can also immediately "Print the guide" here. 

If you are the author of the route, you can choose to disconnect certain sights/POIs from the route. You do that by clicking on the disconnect icon  at the POI information. Read more about removing sights from a route here.

E. Comments

Here you can possibly leave a comment for the author of the route. It can be a compliment, a comment or a question about the route.

The first response you get to a route is always one from RouteYou itself. This is what we call the RouteYou StarTracker. A short message with a lot of practical input regarding the route.

F. Activities

Here you can check who has already done the route and when. Or you can also indicate yourself when you plan to do the route or when you have done it and how long it took you. More information about this can be found on this page.

G. Nearby

Here you get input on interesting routes, places to stay overnight and services near your route.

3/ Sticky buttons: Getting started with your route

At the bottom of the left column you will find a bar with quick selection buttons. This bar and its buttons are 'sticky' which means that they remain visible and on top of the information presented in the left column. This is to keep them as accessible as possible. Through these quick selection buttons you can directly access certain functionality:
