This is our intended TGOC route for 2012
Well read on for a bit obviously. The first bit explains what a pain in the arse it was getting the map to work on blogger.
I was hoping to make it interacactive and I have now, but I had a number of technical issues.
Firstly Blogger insisted on putting a 2mm frame round each map segment, which made it look bloody ridiculous.
Then when I finally tried to publish it after the preview worked just fine, I started getting an http server error on the maps.
I am now investigating why this is with the technical folk at OS open source mapping.
I think the silly grid lines is a blogger issue, although there is a solution below.
I thought it was to do with the image frame, but I have now added some css stuff to stop that on pictures and it still does it on their bloody interactive map.
IF, I ever get a resolution from blogger, then I will publish how it should be done on here.
I have had a response from OS Opensource though and they say that the iframe solution is the one that they recommnd, so there you go.
And as you can see I have the solution which places the OS map that needs to be sited on another site, in an interactive frame works.
See Interactive frame below …………
(It was iframe idea initially from Alistair’s comment NICE!)
You can View/Download a PDF of how I did it from HERE
Use the controls or mouse and scroll wheel to scroll the map and also to zoom in and out.
You can go to 1:25000 beyond that you lose detail.
If you click on this link BELOW you will be able to jump to a bigger version of the interactive map on my other site.
Once there, you can use the mouse to scroll the map, and also zoom in and out down to 1:25000 scale
It is a not completely accurate and some bits
will change with the weather, BUT it is definitely accurate enough!
OK, the last day is seemples, and we are finishing at St Cyrus (again) but heh, look at the rest of it!
and the other two poor sods who are doing it are Myself and Dave Wilkinson.
This is Dave’s first and a pretty harsh intro it is too. 🙂
If the map above does not work for you then
