To add a place in Mapstr you can:
- Type the name or the address of this place
- Add the place immediately near you by using the geolocation feature
- Scan the printed address (in a magazine, on a card) of the place
- Long press the map at the exact location you want to add this place
Once you’ve found the place you want to add, you can add as many tags as you want to describe it and organize your map, choosing in your tags list or creating new ones.
The only mandatory attributes of a place, are its name, address and at least one tag.
You can add a comment to the place (if you want to remember the source or any other type of information).
All other place attributes are automatically filled in by Mapstr. You can change them or add your own information, such as the phone number, the website, and your own pictures: click on the « more options » button at the bottom of the screen.
You can also choose to make a place private if you don’t want your friends to see it.
In Mapstr, you can add your very own places, even not-listed ones, such as your friends’ homes, a sightseeing point or any other place you can think of: select the « create a new place » option when adding the place.
