Tips on using the map

  • Click on the map once to recenter and zoom in. Do this to help separate locations that are close to one another
  • Click and hold while dragging to shift the map in any direction you choose.
  • Put the mouse over a marker to cause the short description to pop up. The short description has the location name and brief details.
  • Click on a marker to zoom in on the location and pop up the detailed description.
  • Click on the "Satellite" button (upper right) to see a satellite image of the area. This is useful for pinpointing exactly where the courts are and how to get to them.
  • Click on the "Map" button (upper right) to see the drawn map of the area. The drawn map includes street names.
  • Click on the "Hybrid" button (upper right) to see a satellite images along with street names.
  • Click on the "+" button (upper left) to zoom in.
  • Click on the "-" button (upper left) to zoom out.
  • Click on the arrow buttons (upper left) to shift the map in a certain direction.

What do the links in the details window do?

  • "Satellite" changes to a mode where you can see a satellite image of the courts. (Click "Map" in the upper right of the screen to go back to a normal map.)
  • "Zoom In" zooms in one step for a slightly closer view of the area.
  • "Zoom Out" zooms out one step for a slightly broader view of the area.
  • "Zoom Way In" zooms to a close in look at the location.
  • "Zoom Way Out" zooms back out to the default city-wide view and using the normal "Map" style (as opposed to "Satellite").
  • "Link" can be used to copy the address link for this location. Put the mouse over "link", press the right mouse button, and choose "Copy Shortcut". Then, you can paste the address into any document you like.

How can I search for particular locations?

  • The search input box is on the upper right hand side of the page.
  • Type in all or part of the name of the location. You can enclose search terms that include spaces with quotes ("). For example, searching for "Anderson High School" will only bring back a location that has the entire name of "Anderson High School", but searching on Anderson High School will bring back any location that has "Anderson" or "High" or "School" in the name.
  • The search also looks at the Address, City, Zip, and Notes for each location. So, for example, you could find all of the locations in one zip code by putting in a single zip code in the search box. Or, you can search for all of the locations on a given street.
  • "Reset Map" - the link directly underneath the search bar will clear the search results and show you all of the locations in the region again.

What do "public managed" and the other classifications mean?

  • Public Open: is open to the public for free (e.g. public park).
  • Public Gated: is open to the public but is sometimes locked (e.g. high school.)
  • Public Managed: is open to public but reservations and fees may be required (e.g. tennis center in public park).
  • Public Locked: is locked at all times but keys are available to the public.

How do I correct or add information on a particular location?

  • On the Add Update page, enter the information that needs to be added or changed. Please provide an e-mail address so that we can contact you with any questions we may have.
