Using Placemarks

Posted by Doug Shidell, May 4th, 2015

I’ve been using the Placemarks feature on the mobile Twin Cities Bike Map to locate puzzle clues for new CrossRoads Puzzles. Note the orange pins around Randall and Underwood Streets in the Fairgrounds.

The pins turned into clue locations in the State Fairgrounds CrossRoads puzzle. Placemarks can be easily exported from your mobile map and imported into another PDF map on your phone. In my case, I imported them into my GIS mapping software and used a smaller scale to show more detail.

This image shows pins around the Stone Arch Bridge. Those Placemarks form the base for the Stone Arch Bridge CrossRoads, which is under development.
