When on the map, you can access help at any time by clicking the 'Help' link in the top right of the map.
How do I move around the map?
Locations are marked on the map to provide landmarks as you go along on your journey.
You can move around the map in any of three ways:
How do I switch between map types?
To alternate between map types, click either of these icons on the top right-hand side.
How do I open and close articles?
Icons represent attractions or areas of interest. Click on these to read about the people and places associated with them.
Click on thumbnail images in the text to enlarge. This will open a new pop-up window.
To close an article, click the 'X' in the top-right of the article area, or click on another pin on the map, or navigate to another point on the map.
The text on the site is too small for me to read. What can I do?
On your keyboard hold the "ctrl" key down and press the "+" key once or twice. Depending on your browser, either your text will increase in size or the whole page will.
If you have to increase the text size so much that you run out of room, you can instead read all the articles outside of the map by clicking here. Now you can increase your text size as much as you need, as you have the whole width of the page at your disposal.
