Dear all,

We have just added Interactive Google Maps to the roster. The code is automatically generated by clicking the "http://www.anthrogenica.com/dbtech/usertag/images/location-pin.png" icon on the third row of your post display.

There's several ways of making use of these interactive maps:

1. Outline a specific province, town, village, or other location

Simply enter the name of the location as is recognized by Google Maps into the generated code. For example, the town Maykop in the Adyghea Republic in Russia is listed as "Maykop, Adyghea, Russia". Entering this in the wrapping gives:

Maykop, Adyghea, Russia

2. Distances between locations

Enter the names of two locations (as recognized once more by Google Maps) into the generated code, separated by a "to". For example, Washington DC in the USA to Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada would be "Washington DC, USA to Winnipeg MB, Canada":

Washington DC, USA to Winnipeg MB, Canada

3. Coordinates

Once you've pinpointed a specific region in the world you'd like to share with other members, click "Menu", "Share or embed map", remain on the "Share link" tab, and remove all the characters around the two digits (coordinates) shown following the "@" sign, placing these digits into the code.

For instance, Mount Ararat between Turkey and Armenia generates the following link: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/search/yerevan/@39.7419301,43.9049131,10.42z

Following the instructions above and entering the resulting coordinates into the wrapped code will produce:


We hope the community finds these additions useful! Special thank you to user Caspian for kindly suggesting this.
