Yahoo! MapMixer + Quick User Guide

Yahoo! MapMixer + Quick User Guide

What is MapMixer? "The world is a big place. There are thousands of maps out there that provide unique details about any given destination. MapMixer is a new site that combines those maps with Yahoo! Maps to give you a better view of the world. It's easy to mix your own map. Upload an image of your map, use our layering tool to align it with Yahoo! Maps and we'll do the rest! Your map will have all the features of Yahoo! Maps (zooming, panning). You can also syndicate it on your own site or blog."

Quick user guide
Sign in to Yahoo.
Upload your jpeg,gif or bmp.
(no tif support at present.)

Yahoo Map Mixer Georeference Point
Two Points are needed to estimate the geographical position of the image.
Traditionally in a GIS environment this is at least 3 points.

*Top Tip - use the opacity setting

Yahoo MapMixer Georeferenced Opacity Setting
Use the control points on the edges of the image. Yahoo Mapmixer allows you to unpin your image which enables the moving of the yahoo map base


Yahoo MapMixer Georeferenced Rotate Image
Use the green circle to rotate the image - this helps to get an exact fit of the image.
*rotated image exaggerated here for example of the function.
