Tracks4Bikers now integrates Google StreetView images, both in GMap Builder and in saved tracks.
To activate the StreetView mode, press the StreetView button in the upper right corner of the map
The button background color change to yellow, indicating the StreetView mode. The StreetView overlay is displayed: roads which contain Street View data will show up highlighted on the map using blue outlines.
If you click the map, a popup window containing a streetview window will be displayed.
Note: the popup is displayed even if you click a road without Street View data. Remember to click only roads highlighted on the map using blue outlines.
To end Streetview mode (for example,in builder, to return to build track mode), click again the Streetview button.
You can embed a track into your website.
To do this, first show a track, then press the EMBED button, copy the HTML code displayed and then paste it into a page in your site.
Note: this feature uses a iframe; a lot of blog and forum engines skipped out the iframe tag. If you’re using one of these engines, you cannot use this feature.
For example, this HTML code
<iframe width="600" height="740" src="http://tracks4bikers.com/tracks/show_iframe/266"> <a href='tracks4bikers.com/tracks/show/266'>View track</a> </iframe>
As a alternative to export tracks in KML format and then use Google Earth, now you can use Virtual Earth 3D (Beta) and display tracks in 3D, directly in your browser.
To do this, first display a saved track, then select “Virtual Earth” in the map provider combobox and wait some seconds in order to load API (in IE, after a info dialog, you must reselect Virtual Earth again).
The Virtual Earth map appear. Now press 3D in the toolbar (note: in firefox, for some strange reasons, labels are hidden! Move the mouse near the VE’s toolbar and click when the tooltip indicating 3D map appear).
If not yet installed, a popup window will help you in installing the plugin
