What is a "Point"?

You can mark your favorite places on the map as points and then name, describe, categorize and add pictures to them.

How to create a point:

 On your profile page:

  1. From “My page“ → “Library“ → “Points“ → “New point“
  2. Choose the place on the map you want to mark.
  3. Click “Continue“.
  4. A window will then open in which you can assign a category to your point and add a title, description and media. Your media gallery will open when selected. You can choose between a previously uploaded picture/video or add a new picture/video.
  5. Select “Save“ to finish creating your point.
  6. The point will now be shown on the map with its accompanying symbol.

On the map:

  1. You can use the add layer ("more-button with 3 dots"), which is on top of the map layer.
  2. After you have selected "Create point", a pin appears on the map.  Move the map itself until the pin is over the place you want to mark. Once the pin is in the correct position, select "Create point"
  3. A window will then open in which you can assign a category (and thus a symbol) to your point and add a title, description and media. Your media gallery will open when selected. You can choose between a previously uploaded picture/video or add a new picture/video.
  4. Select "Save" to finish creating your point.
  5. The point is now be shown on the map with its accompanying symbol.

In the app:

You have the option of creating a point on the map by pressing and holding on the spot you wish to mark.


Good to know

Your points are only visible to you and whilst they cannot be published, you can share them with friends. 

In contrast to waypoints, a point is not linked to a route and can be set independently. Please note, however, that a point can also have the category “waypoint“ (just like the categories “mountain hut“ or “viewpoint“) assigned to it. These are completely unrelated to the waypoints linked to routes.

Click on your name in the top right followed by “Points“ in “My content“ to call up all the points you have created.
