About Treasure Maps

• Treasure Maps create a 'treasure hunt' style game using Google Maps and Street View. Follow clues to discover a series of places on the map.

• You can navigate either by clicking directly on the map or by clicking on the navigation arrows within Google Street View

• When you get close to your destination an image is displayed in the street view panorama, along with a 'You Are Close!' message in the top right corner. A proximity indicator shows approximately how close you are.

• Click on the image displayed within the street view panorama when you find a place. After finding a place you obtain a clue to the next place to search for.

• For extra assistance there is a bounding circle showing the area which contains the target destination. As you move closer towards the destination this circle will reduce in size.

• You can play one of the featured Treasure Maps below or use the simple editor tool to create your own Treasure Maps.

This is a beta project and may contain bugs. If you find a bug or have a suggestion to improve the game please contact us.


Create Your Own Treasure Map

• Use the Treasure Map Edit Page to add, edit and delete places from your Treasure Map and change various map settings.

• For each place you should choose the map location and then select a nearby street view that contains a view of the place.

• You should set a clue for each place and also select an image that is displayed alongside the clue and within the street view. The image is not mandatory but helps to create a better experience for the user.

• Please ensure that you have the right to use the image and where appropriate provide image attribution and a link which will be displayed beneath the image.

• You can also add a description and a website link for each place to provide supplementary information

• Each place has a field called 'order' which sets the order in which images are displayed during the game. A random number between 0 and 1 is added to the order each game. You can assign the same order value to multiple places and randomize the order that places will apear during the treasure hunt.

• The range value is the distance in metres where the place's image is displayed in the street view. The default value is 50 metres.
