Just that when they created the new audax.uk pages they only put the link to the full mapping list, on the perm front page.  No link from each perm page.  But yes, be nice for them to take the data we have, and create the outlines on audax.uk. No doubt, at the reunion this weekend, it'll be mentioned that there's a shit  load of other stuff being done on audax.uk in the background and this isn't a priority.
Did you get any joy with links to allow everyone to easily access the map outlines (which we put a fair bit of work into) direct from each Permanent's page, Phil?

Now it’s on audax.uk , work to restore the links on each permanents page is next on my todo list. I’ll also look at getting the SR600’s data onto the mapping. Audax uk IT bods are amenable to this.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... This is a great piece of work. Thanks Phil. 😎

I'd need a list of control names and lat / lon locations to add, though seems the outline maps are pretty good if not searchable.
I have done another new SR600: SR04T on the sheet, @Lightening Phil (includes control site Lat/Longs where not on db already) and will complete Will's and Deano's shortly.

Phil - I have filled in Will's and Deano's SR600 data. I have not used all the actual controls but used places which effectively 'describe' the shape of the rides.
I could have sworn I saw a 'Thanks Ajax Bay' reply message from you but maybe now deleted (?)

You did but I didn’t delete it.  Sometimes get funnies that like.  Had it on other threads before. Anyway thanks for adding the SR600 data.

The perm map data now includes the new SR600 data.  I’ve pushed the changes to my Audax UK source control repository for perm mapping. So hopefully go live in new few days when our web content man has a bit of time.

I’ve also pushed my changes necessary to be able to provide direct links to the perm maps for individual events on the audax UK perm event detail pages. So hopefully those links can appear soonish as well. This replicates the linking we’d done for when the perm details were presented on aukweb.net.  It was just really dealing with the different way perm details are dealt with on audax.uk



I’ve also been working on streamlining the way you edit the existing perm map data or create new perm data for the mapping. It will allow you to click to add then drag controls around on a map to place them, plus a side bar form for the rest of the details. This is imminent in terms of being ready for prime time. Likely next week. So I have now made the Google sheet (for perm perm mapping data) read only, as it will no longer be part of the workflow.



Aiming to get this edit functionality hosted on audax.uk as well.

Edit function now live at audax.uk

Here’s what I posted on Audax UK organisers FB page.

Permanent Event Map

I’m pleased to announce that during lockdown the permanents event map has moved to a new home, now hosted on the new Audax UK website. It can be found at https://perms.audax.uk.

If you know the eventId then you can pull up an event directly with https://perms.audax.uk?eventId=<eventId>.  This the same format you see for the web address (url) of a permanent event detail page.

Editing the map data

I have also been working on a simpler way to edit the permanent event data. Either updating / correcting the existing data for an existing perm, or creating the map / controls data for a new perm. The original process worked well for crowd sourcing across all perms in phase 1 but now it needs an easier slicker process as it settles into its maintenance phase.

You can find the permanent map edit function at https://perms-edit.audax.uk .  To edit a current perm map details you paste the url of permanent event detail page and it’ll pull up what details we hold for the perm. To achieve the same you can also put the event id in the url , for example https://perms-edit.audax.uk?eventId=26 . The controls can moved by dragging them on the map, new ones added by clicking the map, delete controls or update other details via the form on the left.

At the moment it’s not integrated with the new Audax UK database. But we are pondering how to move forward so it can be integrated with a future admin backend. I’m keen on a backend API approach.  For now when happy with your edits you click the email button and it’ll generate an email which will open in your email client.  The email will have all the detail needed to update the map. You’ll just need to click send it to me, where I’ll take the update detail and update the perm map data. Then push the update up for our web content man to apply.

The data this creates is also exactly the data needed for validation by GPS. If the controls are placed precisely. So I’m pondering it also being able to generate the required GPX track in a future update.

Cheers

Phil
