Four things to remember!
Share Key Observation = Share 1 key observation on the spot
Share Track = Share 1 track (+ observations) at the end. Important: the track is only shared once a colour has been assigned to it
GPS Track = Record track (+ observations along the way) to directly share afterwards using "Share Track"
Conditions Map = Consult latest conditions on the map
Yes, it works fine for instance in flight-mode (and helps save some battery-power). Only the GPS signal is required. Your track and observations can be shared once the network is back, in the meantime they are saved on your phone
- To flag or remove a single observation, click on the (i) symbol in the upper-right corner of the fully-enlarged observation window
- To remove a track, send the track name (and corresponding region) by email to technical.supportATmountainow.net
Go to the website and login, then click on the wheel icon in the top right corner: The fields Pseudo, Name, Experience level will appear on screen. Make required changes and save. Note that the "Pseudo" field may be left empty (in that case, tracks and observations will remain fully anonymous to the public)
"Nearby" shows the latest posts in a radius of 30 km around you or around the place selected on map
On the website. Click on "Conditions Map", the latest posts are listed in the left column
Red: Danger; Yellow: Long-term (for an observation relevant in the long-term, e.g. fallen rocks); Violet: Key observation (with no imminent danger nor long-term); Blue: Observation that belongs to a track.
On the website, colour-markers are replaced by colour-frames; the thicker the frame, the higher the experience level of the observer that contributed the observation (i.e. thin frame for "Enthusiast" level; thick frame for "Professional" level)
- As a shortcut to add observations to a track
- The GPS signal is not good enough to enable precise geo-localization (during GPS-tracking)
Please set your MountaiNow localisation settings to "Always" on your smartphone. Otherwise, GPS tracking will stop everytime the phone is put to sleep
Only key observations remain visible at all times on the map, the ones associated with a track only show when the corresponding track is selected
A few days. Only observations tagged "Long-term" remain in the system for longer
Not for the moment. Whilst GPS-recording a track, the track remains visible off-line but not the base-map
No, at this stage, it is only stored in your phone. The track needs to be shared under Share Track/Use my GPS Track to actually show on MountaiNow
The post may take a bit of time to transfer depending on network connection - or - the "Share Track" process was not fully completed. The process is completed by giving a colour to the track
There is no recent observation associated with this track for now
Either the network is not good enough for data transfer, or this is a transition zone between two base-maps (the latter will be resolved gradually)
