Platform update: turn collections into routes and timelines

Routes and timelines can now be added to Humap!

A representational image of the routes and timelines feature.

Routes are the evolution of trails; curated records that tell the story of a long journey.

Whereas every waypoint on a trail is a record, this new feature allows the user to draw a journey and place records along the route. Waypoints no longer require records, making this feature perfect for plotting extended travel.

Timelines allow clients to build chronology into the fabric of their records, using time, as well as location, to curate them.

Combined with routes, timelines add more information and interactivity to content on Humap.

Similar to collections and trails, the user can flick back and forth through each record – or pick and choose from the list.
