Web Planner - My Library: points

In the web planner, I only see my synchronized tracks, but not the points.

I assume/hope its not forgotten, just not implemented yet, but in case it is, or I stumbled upon a bug, here it is.

When doing the first cloud sync, it did say that it was syncing points and then later tracks, so the data should already be there.


It is almost essential to see my points when trying to plan some route.

I know it's early days, and congratulations on releasing the 4.0! Started playing with it, and so far looks very nice. Can't wait for the Web Planner to get a bit more mature, and finally I can start planning hikes there. You just saved me from having to buy a tablet :D

The points can be accessed via an android emulator like bluestacks on a PC in the meantime

But yes, points in webUI will be excellent.

Hi and thanks for creating this idea. Viewing of points is not implemented, yet - because of tight time schedule. But, it is definitely on our "high priority" list. For sure there should be similar browsing experience as for tracks + some kind of possibility to display multiple points in the map (highly related to: https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/23769-web-planner-display-multiple-tracks)

There are a lot of things regarding displaying points on the map that have to be discussed (also internally within our team):

  1. Display all points
  2. Display only points of selected folder/group (or multiple of them)
  3. Previous solutions are not good enough and we need some more advanced filtering solution?
  4. Also technical and UX constraints have to be considered ... e.g. sending and displaying thousands of points would be just resources and map would be only covered with markers

Any ideas or more details how you are using points are welcome.

Hi,


I agree that this could tightly tie into the linked topic (displaying multiple tracks).

Personally, I like to have any number of points and tracks visible on the map, from multiple folders combined (but not necessarily all items from any given folder).

This includes downloaded tracks, my previous tracks (which should be all the same for this purpose), imported points and self-saved points (which again should be all the same).

Of course, I try not to show absolutely everything at the same time, but I don't mind if it gets a bit crowded -- I have those points saved for a reason: I want to use them for navigation.

If it gets too much, I think I'd be fine with some POI grouping logic on lower zoom levels.


As for the implementation/UI, I think I'd prefer the same or similar solution as we have in the app: checkboxes for each item in a folder, with "select all" "deselect all" and "invert" options (per folder).

And ideally the selection would be remembered across sessions.

Synchronizing with what's selected in the app is probably a bad idea (and far from trivial too, and multiple apps also don't sync).

Good to hear this wasn't forgotten, and thanks for prioritizing it!

"Synchronizing with what's selected in the app is probably a bad idea". Yes, there's no reason for it, selections are likely situation based...

Yes I agree, selection behaviour as in the app would be nice.

I think this is the only suitable solution. I'm not sure it would be possible to actually use your points if you couldn't individually select them or select them all etc.
