West Lothian

Postby Kluseau » 11 Jan 2021, 12:17

With more of us active in Livingston, West Lothian, the existing zones are getting busier which is great. At present they are all on the north side of the town with very little south of the River Almond and nothing south of the town centre.

Is it acceptable to submit proposed zones in "what3words" format which tie the centre of the proposed zone to a 3mx3m square? The four below are two suggestions which extend zones slightly further south in Livingston plus two other notable locations, an ancient monument near Bathgate and the site of the "Livingston Incident" alleged UFO encounter which is marked with a plaque on the ground.

WLCollege: footpath from centre to West Lothian College:

ChainRunner: car park of The Chain Runner pub:

LiviIncident: site of "The Livingston Incident" alleged UFO encounter:

Well, as you get to see a map and which could be switched to satellite imagery it works about as well as a google map link. In Google you can get longitude/latitude which might be useful. Zonemaker would still have to know the city well or cross reference until they are looking at the same place in the zone creation tool.

Would be nice if you were able to create links that would open the spot in our tool. But until then I recommend in-app suggestion in cities which already have zones, and just highlight the area in a forum post.

These look good, we don't put zones on parking lots but I can see your suggestion is just beside so that's fine. And UFO landing sites are given! Look out for them tomorrow.

And thank you for the raft of new zones on the south side of Livingston!
