I apologize to Mr. Peng who wrote to me to complain that there is an error on my Shanghai Map. He searched for Zhong Shan South Road II and come to my site since mine is the first in the result. According to my map, the place is somewhere near Xi Kang Road. He took bus No 113 there only to find the road he was looking for is at the other side of the city.
I apologize for the inconvenience my map caused. I put a disclaimer on the map with red font and put it on the top of the page. It reads:
注意：本地图上的点信息由网友提供，任何人都可以添加一个点；没有人进行任何核实。它可能会帮助您尽快地在整张地图上找到您要找的点，但是一定要先在原始地图上确认再使用。Note: All the point information on this map was contributed by readers and is not verified for ts accuracy. Please reference the map image before use.
The map is built with two ideas in mind:
- A map should be simple with less interface and load fast.
- A map should be built with community effort
So I simply put the tiles of the maps and enable people to pinpoint on the city map and scroll using the errors.
Then I opened the right to add a point to anyone who has access to the page. This is built upon the Wiki concept. In the previous version, I enabled people to write description to any point and delete any point but it is not included in this version.
The point information is not accurate. I guess about half of the information is wrong. I will find a better way to control the quality to make it usable, but now, I guess I don’t have time to do it. So a disclaimer is the best solution that I can accomplish within five minutes.
I don’t have an English version map. I know it is highly demanded and many readers asked me for that. I’m afraid I don’t have one.
Actually, the copyright of the map is the SMI. I have contacted with them and want to make some progress to get a usage license before I use. We made appointment to meet before but didn’t find the time.
