A.N.T.S

 Sample Map Reply
This is what your map reply will look like:

Welcome to A.N.T.S

Your membership has been approved.

You can now add your icon.

Steps to add your icon:

1. Go to the A.N.T.S map and sign into your Google account

2. Zoom all the way in to your street or intersection.

3. Click the "edit" button, which is located at the top left corner of the map.

4. Right mouse click on the spot where you would like your icon to go and pick "add a placemark" from the drop down menu. 

5. Your icon will appear on the map with an edit box to add a subject and description. We recommend adding your State, City/town and Username in the title area and adding the word "street" or "intersection" in the description area.

My icon edit box would look like this for a street marker:

Subject:             NC - Mooresville - Founderant
Description        Street - S Academy St

It would look like this for an intersection marker:


Subject:             NC - Mooresville - Founderant
Description        Intersection - Main Street and Center Street

This allows someone to find you even if your marker is out of place.

If you feel uncomfortable giving that much information you can just put the username and street or intersection info in the box like this:

Subject:             Founderant
Description        Street or Intersection, depending on which one you use.


6. After you enter your edit box information click "OK"



Note: If you move another members icon by mistake, an undo button will show up at the top of the map. Click it and the icon will be put back in place.


7. Click "save" and "done" at the top left corner of the map.

Note - When you reload or come back to the map, your icon will be on the last page. To get to it, scroll down to the bottom of the members list and click next.


Remember, you can choose to place your icon in one of three ways:

1. Place your icon on your street: If you use this method and you are caught in a disaster and cannot contact the group, nearby members will search for you by looking on your street for a distress marker.

2. Place your icon on any intersection in your city/town: This method allows you to be completely private. If you use this method and you are caught in a disaster, and cannot contact the group,  nearby members will search for you by looking for an stone or brick marker that you will place at that intersection. They will then use the information on it to search for you.

3. Place no icon at this time: If you choose not to add a icon at this time, you will still need to put one at a nearby McDonald's if you want to volunteer during a disaster. It is the only way we can create a supply route. You can remove it after the route map has been created.
