Multitouch Earth: Terminology


Points on the map with latitude and longitude coordinates are called waypoints.


A series of waypoints connected by lines (tracking past or future travel of a ship, for example) is called a route.


Overlay displayed on top of the map. Such overlays may contain additional information, such as points of interest, weather, etc.

Actual route

The Actual route is the real last route of the ship with the length of about 1.000 km to the current ship’s position (this route is built from the data supplied by the ship’s navigation system).

Captain’s route

The future route as planned by the captain (this route is built from the data supplied by the ship’s navigation system) is called Captain’s route.

Custom’s route (or User’s route)

The future possible route as built by the user is called a custom route. Such route can be built from scratch or created from the Captain’s route.


An alert is an important message which should be seen by the Multitouch Earth user.


A popup windows displayed by the program that provides additional (optional) information about a specific feature is called a balloon. Photo metadata and comments, for example, are displayed in a balloon.
