I think the idea is to submit your edits or additions to a human who will verify and add/correct as necessary

Even so, it would be far easier for EH staff if "add or edit destination" is a form that submits to a database rather than an email link. That way, they can simply commit additions and changes using a confirmation page rather than having to type or copy/paste into some other interface.

Having said that, bear in mind that the tool is still brand-new. I remember when Google Maps was a shell of its current functionality - Google made it what it is today by listening to users and adding features incrementally (i.e. ship early and ship often).

The Walk There! tool is an excellent start for Hamilton, and will only benefit from a similarly incremental approach.

My advice to anyone who would like to see features added - especially if you have some programming expertise yourself - is to contact Beatrice and offer to code the feature yourself.

If you have a programming business, EH can probably offer you a tax credit for the value of the work donated.
