How to use Geospeak
Using geospeak maps
All geospeak maps are based on Google maps with panoramic street views. There are different options to start to find places on map. They are your neighbourhood, local city, the whole world. Just choose the area you want to start your search. When you choose either of the options, on the left hand side of Geospeak site you will be able to see the latest messages from chosen areas. On the right side – there is a map. Dragging the zoom slider ( top left corner of the map) or clicking on the icons either end of the slider, takes you to closer or further away from a center of your view. You can also zoom in into location by clicking anywhere on the map. Dragging a map you can move to a different places on the maps.
Also you can use search option. To arrive to a specific place enter a name of the place, country, city or address in the search panel and press “search”.
To write a message you need to find the place that you want to comment on and maximum zoom in on to it until a red pin appears with a question mark. Then click write a new message.
