Move your cursor around to highlight routes. I will eventually change it so you can open the routes when you click on them.


Nifty! :D

Now you can click on the route names on the top left or on the route lines and route descriptions will open in a new browser window. I've also added a progress % bar so we can see what's happening when the Flash file is loading.

Now that I have the basic functionality down, I'll start adding the others...

I cleaned up the way the hovering text-boxes look. I have Grays/Torreys and Elbert done and I'm starting to add more based this template. Note: If you're already viewed them today, you may have to clear your browser cache (not cookie cache) to reload the revised maps.

That is one of the most awesome online maps I've ever seen. Wow!

I think they will be very helpful! Once I get them all out there, I'll look for ways to integrate more data/pics/etc.

They are kind of large, but I'd rather have the detail.
