Very excited to see how this all works. And mostly it works very well. A few things seem to be harder than they might be, or seem to be missing. Perhaps I have not found the proper documentation. I see lots of wiki style pages, but it is a mix.
First, when I am in edit mode, I see a photo overlay, perhaps from satellite images. I go out of edit mode and all I have access to are line modes. What happened to the images? How can I turn on the images in View mode?
Second, I thought I could search for something, see that it returns 10 results and then, you know, radical thought here, see all 10 results on the map. I only see how to select one search result by clicking on it. So, pick one and lose all the other results? But it is a map and can show more than one search result, yes? But how?
Third, I have an idea and wonder if there is a forum to go to or some way to find interested people. I want to map retail food sellers. I am in the US so I would start there and understand the US markets better. My sense is that there are differences in “square feet (or meters) per person” for grocery stores, fast food restaurants, convenience stores and so forth. It has been suggested that people in poorer areas of the US have more access to unhealthy processed food and less access to basic food stuffs, like produce. Certainly many urban areas have almost no grocery stores, but lots of bars, convenience stores, pay-day loan stores and such as that. It would be interesting to see how this maps out.
Please point me to the correct forum for these kinds of questions. Otherwise, I would appreciate your patience with me and your forbearance.
