When you follow someone else’s collection, it is added to your “My Collections” list and you receive updates automatically. You can still add your own fields and change views but only the collection owner can add and remove locations and routes.
Finding new collections to follow
To discover new collections, you can either find the “Gallery” section inside the app or browse the website. Inside the app, you can press the “+ Add” button add it to your “My collections” list. On the website you can press the “Follow” button.
This also works for web content published in the standard GeoJSON format. Various Open Data websites (and APIs) publish data in this format, so you can add this to your list of collections and always have them updated. Adding your own fields and views can help making arbitrary GeoJSON data much prettier and easier to digest.
Making your collection public
This is still a work in progress and only collections created by Maparoni can be followed for now.
