YellowMaps™ HELP

The yellow window to the right shows up on every map in the city guide. Just play around with the buttons: it is pretty straightforward.

For specific questions you may consult the FAQ page.

The YellowMaps map engine has been tested on PCs running Windows, and either Internet Explorer 4+ or Netscape Navigator 6.02+. JavaScript must be turned on in the browser options. Mac OS support is planned for September, 2005.

For you to test: your PC is fit for the YellowMaps Map Engine, if you see an image like the one below in the City Guide. Note specifically that the map engine works correctly, if you see this in the scale bar on the bottom left: e.g. '0.9km / 0.6miles'.

If you only see '0.9 / 0.6', i.e. without the km/miles in the scale bar, your computer in its current configuration does not fit the compatibility requirements for the YellowMaps Map Engine. This occurs on some Macintosh computers, or when your browser is not configured correctly.
