This page allows you to create a custom link on Cabrillo's Cmap, which will zoom in on a spot of your choice, accompanied with an optional info window. There is also the option of creating multiple icons (example: bathrooms in the 2000 area), each with their own text box. We created this as a means of allowing Cabrillo staff and faculty to encode useful information; for example, a meeting location (example) that you could send in an email, or an office location (which could go on one's website to help others find it).
To create your custom link:
The links generated by this application can be used in a few ways. They can be encoded into a web page (as the examples above have been; if you would like assistance on how to encode your custom Cmap link into your web page, please contact the TLC), or you can simply copy paste it for one-time use it in an email, IM, etc.
*Note* the syntax for these costom links has changed since the initial launch, as such, links created before late Obcober are deprecated and may no longer function. We apologize for any inconvenience! This project is currently in beta; as such, there are a few things we're still working on. It doesn't yet detect which floor a user is on when they select their GPS coordinates, so if the location is on the second floor, it won't work quite right. We're welcome to feedback! Let us know if there's any bugs you've encountered.
Check the box below to prevent floor plans from automatically being made visible when a marker is over that building. This is typically desireable when the features being added to your custom map are not within a building, but may be near them. Due to the way the building overlays are interpreted, sometimes it will mistake a marker that is near a buidling for being within it, and make that floor plan visible when you don't want it to (which can be visually distracting from the pins you are actually trying to place). However, if the pin is representing a room inside a building, you probably should leave it unchecked, so that the interior will be visible.Don't automatically show floor plans under pins
Clicking on a building name will list the current departments. Clicking on the building boundaries will show or hide its map, if available. Continuing to click will scroll through the floors if the building is multiple stories
