TOPIC: New Launches Page

New Launches Page 3 years 4 months ago #1

Total revamp of the Launches page. 70 windsurfing launches, 19 lake, 4 states and counting...

Launch Menu and Map Type
Lakes are in alphabetical order and their corresponding launches. The launch menu also has a scroll bar. Map type can be changed(top right). Roads can be turned on and off of satellite view(top right, satellite drop down check-box)

Lake Overviews
Click a lake in the menu or its icon on the map and it auto zooms/centers to an overview of a lake's launches.

Launch Popups
Click a lake's launch in the menu or its icon and it zooms/centers over the launch with popup info. You can zoom more or less with your mouse wheel. Popup info can be closed by clicking its top right X. If you explore and get off the beaten path just click the lake or launch in the menu to re-center yourself.

Street View
Drag and drop the orange figure.

Drop orange figure on any street or circle that turns blue.

Map will change to Street View. You can pan 360 degrees. You can also move up and down streets. Street View can be closed by clicking the top right X.

An example of a nice view from one of the blue circles on a beach.

Thanks to those for helping with launch site info. If you're asking, "Where's my lake and launches?", give a shout out and let's add that puppy. Also nothing is in stone and if something isn't right it can be changed. If you're saying, "Hey, some of those lakes and launches aren't in IL", don't worry about that, that's called launch creep.

More info and photos will be added to some popups.

Thanks again, and hope to see you on the water at one of these launches,

You are tripping my friend but keep it up, like it. Must take long hours.
