Fire and Iceland
Map: StylePlease choose a map style that you like from the top 3 options on the left. These can be changed at any time while you're viewing by clicking another circle. If a map style is greyed out, you've already zoomed in further than its maximum extent. All maps are provided by tile servers with their own usage policies, at busy times they may fail to provide tiles and that map will become blank grey. | LayersSelect one or more layers from the row of tick boxes in the lower sections after the horizontal line below the map styles. Multiple boxes can be ticked; selecting too many layers will slow down your display. | GPSLatitude and longitude of places have been supplied in case you'd like to add them to your SatNav. Many of these are approximate, but should bring you to the correct area. | UnitsValues shown alone - e.g. 426m - are elevation above sea level. Water depth etc. may also be specified in descriptions. Height (H), width (W), depth (D), area (A), volume (V) etc. are all displayed in metres (or m2 or m3) and litres (GL = GigaLitres).) | ZoomYou can zoom in and out of the map with the + and - on the right, or with a mouse scroll wheel if you have one, and click/touch and drag the map around after you've zoomed in. There's also a "full screen" option if your browser can handle it. Some maps will zoom in further than others; when you've zoomed past a map's extent it will grey out in the menu.
SoundHovering over a map icon will show a tool-tip which will disappear when you move off the icon. If the tool-tip has a < symbol then the full info contains a pronunciation. When you click the icon, if there's a white ▶ button in the pop-up marker, it'll play the sound of a pronunciation when clicked / tapped. | MarkersPlease click the markers for more info. Some places appear in more than one set, and some markers are close together. Hovering over a marker should bring it to the front so you can click it. | CirclesThe "Videos" category contains multiples in some places. These are represented by a circle with a number in it.
Hovering will show a blue polygon defining the area covered by the circle. Click it to zoom in to that area. Zooming in should split the circle into smaller ones.
Clicking a clapper-board icon will open a modal window containing the media.
| MountainsIt is outwith the scope of this map to provide all of the mountain names and locations. Those provided here are significant to us in some way - e.g. they will be referenced in our photos (when we eventually include them.) | TunnelsRoad tunnels are shown as an icon and also as a red line approximating the underground route. Planned works not yet completed are depicted by a dotted line. More info is available within the tunnel marker pop-up.
