LoPoints are dynamic points of interest that can be displayed above any map. Each LoPoint marks the location and category of a particular place and contains additional information - e.g. opening hours, WWW, phone number, and other attributes. LoPoints can be navigated to and guided similarly to Locus user points. LoPoints are based on OpenStreetMap and Wikipedia data.
Online LoPoints are loaded from the internet and contain also photos from Wikipedia and from Locus users:
They can be turned on/off from the content panel:
Offline LoPoints are an integral part of LoMaps but can be also displayed above any other map. They can be turned on/off from the content panel as well.
Offline LoPoints (mapname.osm.db file) can be used only when a corresponding LoMap (mapname.osm.map file) is present in Locus/mapsVector/ directory. If the map file is removed (e.g. due to saving space for use of another map) the LoPoint file cannot be initialized.
You can browse offline LoPoints by categories, select a category and highlight it on the map.
LoPoints can't be exported.
You can search for LoPoints or their categories both from the LoPoints browser
and from the general Search
It works full-text so e.g. keyword “rests” returns all points with “rest” in their name, description or amenity. The search results can be highlighted on the map in the same way as described above.
To deactivate the highlight, tap again the icon in the topbar:
Photos are the greatest means of inspiration for other hikers, cyclists and other travelers to discover interesting places on the map. The most known objects are often accompanied by Wikipedia photos but the others can be equipped with snaps from Locus users. You can add your own pics but you can also browse and rate photos of others.
This option requires you to be logged in to your Locus account
If you decide to inspire through your photos, you can do so this way:
This can also be done offline. The photos are kept in temporary memory and uploaded when you get online.
All photos are checked by the Locus team before attaching them to LoPoints. It takes up to two workdays.
We recommend you follow the best practices for adding your photos >>
