Your place could be a club, a festival site, someone’s home, a recording studio, etc. Don’t worry if your venue has been demolished – you will just pin it approximately where it used to be.
1. You will need to create an account
by registering with us. This helps us stop spam on the map, but your memory will still be anonymous.
2. Hit the map. You might want to click ‘Find Me
’ just to help you orientate yourself. (To use this feature your location services on your device will need to be switched on.)
3. Centre the map
on the location you want to add a place to. Use the zoom button to get as close as possible
for maximum accuracy.
4. Next click ‘Add A Place’
. If you can’t see the ‘Add A Place’ button click RESET MAP
at the top of the page.
(You may also prefer to use the Google Maps ‘Satellite’ view
. You can toggle between the main map view and satellite view using the white buttons in the top left hand corner of the map.)
5. Give your place a name
, i.e. The Haçienda, and then move your pin to the exact location
where you want to drop it. You should zoom in using the + sign as much as possible.
6. Hit save.
You can now pin a memory to the map. To record a memory:
1. Click your pin
to bring up our recording facility. First give your memory a good title
to catch people’s eyes. You can add the club night name below if this is relevant.
2. Then choose a category
for your memory. You can choose as many as you like i.e. ‘drugs’ ‘music’ ‘politics’.
3. Next click ‘record’
. You have a maximum of 60 seconds
to share your memory!
4. Make sure you listen back
using the play button and record it again if you are not happy.
9. DON’T FORGET TO SAVE!
