Website founder John Piears comments, “Our long-term aim is to offer anyone, anywhere the ability to plot and share routes on any suitable device - this is our next step towards this goal”.
“A key consideration in the design of the mobile route planner was ensuring that plotting routes was simple and accurate on a small screen. As most smartphones have touch screens, and finger tips don't make very accurate pointers, we have taken a completely new approach to interacting with online maps. Rather than click on (or touch) the map to plot points, our crosshair feature enables users to effectively 'fire' points at the map - just aim and shoot! And, taking this one step further, our unique Plot on Drag feature automatically 'fires' points every time the user drags the map, making it very quick to plot routes on a touch screen device.”
Since its launch only on 1 January 2014, plotaroute.com has become a very popular choice for planning routes for leisure activities, attracting tens of thousands of users every month. The launch of the new mobile website extends its reach to mobile devices, allowing users to seamlessly plot and share routes across different platforms.
