What problem does this solve?[edit]

Organizing a Wiki Takes... a city can be difficult. Where to start? How to create a handy tour?

What is the solution?[edit]

The solution depends on what basic information is available of the locations in a city. To organize a photo tour effectively, you need to know the locations of the objects you would like to have a photo of. The location can be defined by coordinates or addresses.

With coordinates[edit]

  1. Project the coordinates on a map.
  2. Project logic routes on the map.
  3. Create a map with arrows how to walk the route.

With addresses[edit]

  1. Group all house numbers of a street.
  2. Group streets which are close together and create groups of streets. In this way the (area of the) city is divided in zones. It is easy to give easy zone a name.
  3. Create a logic route for each zone.
  4. Create a map with arrows how to walk the route.
  5. Create a list of all streets of a route, with each street all house numbers of that street, and place the streets in the order of the walking route.

Things to consider[edit]

  • People get tired, routes/zones with 100-150 monuments are doable.
  • Create short and long routes so participants can choose.
  • Let participants create groups of 2 or 3 people.
  • Have each route only be used by one group.
  • Make sure routes have the opportunity to discontinue before the end.
  • All routes start at the same location. All routes end at the same location. Start and end location can differ.

When to use[edit]

  • Apply this when you have a list of known locations with addresses or coordinates.
