Table of contents
- If you are still using the RoutePlanner, you have to save/submit your route first. After submitting your route, the route is converted to a print version and several GPS formats.
- Select Send (menu on the left in the RoutePlanner)
- After 1 minute, you can visualise your route using the RouteViewer. Select from the Main Menu the option My Space. Select from the list My Routes the route you want to view/print.
You are exploring your route using the RouteViewer
Look at this example to see a route in the RouteViewer.
- You get to see an overview page.
- A print window will pop up requesting to print the overview page. Select cancel if you don't want to do this.
- You can select a more detailed set of maps by selecting the option Detail at the top of the page. (see an example here)
-Select the maximum nr of pages you want to use for your print (selecting a higher number, e.g. 25 pages) will give you more detailed maps at a larger scale.
-The route is represented on a sequence of small maps. These map areas are selected along the track of you route.
-When reaching the end of your route on map (A), the next map (B) will show the continuation of that route.
-Below the map, you will see the POIs (Points of Interest) represented with their information, a picture, the distance along the route, the type,...
-If you don't want the POI information, but just the maps, you can deselect the box next to POI at the top of the page. In that case, only the maps will be shown.
Play with the options
Changing and printing your "detailed set of maps" in 3 steps:
- At top of the "detailed set of maps" you find an option boxwhere you can select options to change the view of the detailed set of maps. Play with the check marks there
- Attention please! To activate the changes, please click on the show button. The result appears after a couple of seconds below the option box
- Are you satisfied with this set of maps? Click on "print this page". Aren't you satisfied, repeat step 1 with the other options that we explain below, and step 2.
The possible options
- You don't have the same options everywhere! It depends the area and the type of routes. Please take this into account in the explanation below.
- Maximum number of pages: The more pages you choose, the more details you see on the maps (it determines the scale of the maps).
- Show maps:
- You can indicate there whether you want maps or not (switch this of if you only want a list of instructions with street names or cycling junctions on a A4)
- You can also choose the type of the map (not the same for every country)
- Show POIs: If you have POIs on your route, you can choose whether to show them or not on the print-out
- Show instructions
- You can choose here whether to visualize the instructions of the route or not (e.g. turn left after 450 m (Kerkstraat).
- Attention please!
- If the route isn't routed (planned in the RoutePlanner), but it is a track, you don't get instructions with street names
- If the route is routed on the cycling junction network, you get cycling junctions instead of street names
- If you used a combination of routing options in the planner, you get different instructions too
