    Brief function overview for POIbase interactive map

    • Use the button “Place search” on the right side or hold the left mouse button to move the interactive map.
    • Zoom by rolling the mouse wheel while positioning the cursor over the map or use the symbols + and – at the map’s right side.
    • Click on the button “POIplaza” on the left side and check the two boxes for “Fixed speed cameras” and “Mobile speed cameras”, if you would like to edit both categories.

    • Click on any speed camera icon to view the "POI details".
    • Click on any icon and then press the button “Delete POI” to delete a speed camera. A window opens, where it is needed to provide a good reason, why this speed camera should be deleted. Otherwise, your deletion might be rejected by our editors.

    How to add a new speed cam POI?

    • First, search the location, where you would like to add a POI and zoom as close as possible into the map.
    • Left-click on the map to mark a position. A red cross appears on the map.
      Note: Try to be as accurately as possible when you determine the spot of the speed camera. The best location of a speed cam is close to the roadside, either on the right or left side, depending on the speed cam's direction.

    • As soon as the position is defined, click on "Add POI". In the next window, select the "speed cam category" (e.g. mobile speed cam, section control. red light etc.).

    • Afterwards, please enter the relevant POI details such as a "short description" defining the speed cam category (M=mobile, F=fixed, S=section control etc.)*, the "direction" in which the camera is active to target an approaching vehicle and the address.
      Note: Although the address field is filled automatically, it is recommended to check the input.

    • If this is done, click on "Next steps", check your entries and click on "OK". Now, your entered speed cam is displayed on the interactive map.
    • Do not forget to activate the direction for the speed cam. This makes your report credible!

    Remember to active the direction!

    • After a speed cam is added, it is still incomplete because it lacks a direction.
    • Click on "Edit POI direction" on the right side, after which two input fields appear. Enter either one or two values to align the angle for the alert (number range of: 1 – 360).
      Note: If you do not know the value, just enter any number from 1 to 360. A changeable light cone will appear on the interactive map.
    • Left-click on the light cone and hold the left mouse button to move the cone! Move the mouse up and down for easy orientation.
    • Click on "Save directions", when finished.
