App Store Description

GardenMap brings a whole new way of enjoying gardens to your iPhone or iPad

With the GardenMap, you can:
• Browse the listing of available gardens - these could be public access gardens, or a private garden a friend has shared with you.
• Explore the garden with the garden map - this could be as you walk around the garden, or from the comfort of the sofa on a winter evening.
• Get details of specific areas of the garden, with photos to get the feel of how it is to stand in the garden in different seasons.
• Get details of any plant in the garden, with photos through the plant's life
• View the plant tags, to get all the cultivation advice, and see where the plant was purchased.
• Create your own garden, adding planting areas, plants, photos and plant tags

Using GardenMap:
• Select a garden from the initial list of available gardens
• Choose to view to garden details or garden map from the bottom navigation bar
TIP: Photos in Details are expanded with a Tap

Map View - Viewing:
• Tap selects objects (plants or planting areas), and shows the details in the quick-view
• Repeated Tap cycles down through overlapping objects
• Long Press a selected object (or tap the quick-view) to view the objects details
• Drag the map to pan - the focus item (plant or planting area) is featured in the quick-view
• Zoom with the pinch gesture

Map View - Editing:
• Tap ‘Edit’ (top right - if you have permission to edit) to enter edit mode
• Edit the map using the edit toolbar, or using screen gestures (this can be useful on devices with smaller screens):
Edit action gestures:
+ Repeated Tap cycles through the shape edit tools for the selected object (e.g. Move, Stretch)
+ Long press a selected shape for the context action menu to add new objects (planting areas or plants), or edit the selected object. Note Plants (without location) are added by editing a Planting Area.
+ Long press a corner point or edge in Point Edit Mode to delete or add a new point (unless you have a rectangular garden you’ll need this!)

Creating your own garden:
• New Gardens are added via Settings
• Edit the Garden details to (as a minimum) give your garden a name, and to set the location. It’s important to get the location close. Use the satellite map, zoom in, and Long Press and Drag on the initial map marker to get the marker somewhere within your garden.
• With the Garden Details done switch to the Garden Map to start drawing your garden map
• Follow the prompts to add a garden boundary, and use the shape edit tools and the satellite map backdrop to shape the boundary to match reality.
• When you’re happy with the boundary add some Planting Areas (or just one if you like).
• With Planting Areas and Specimen Plants, add first, then edit the new object to enter the details.
• General planting (without location) is added by editing the Planting Area and adding the Plants there.

Good to know:
GardenMap splits plants into two groups, based on how they are displayed on the garden map:
• 'Feature Plants': Plants that are plotted on the map individually, because of their importance (structural or emotional!)
• 'Plants': Plants (that are still important), but would take too much time (and would clutter the map) if plotted individually. Good for filling a bed with plants.

The garden map is built up using the following types of objects:
• 'Boundary': This is the first object in the map - it matches the real world outer boundary of the garden. Only 'Areas' can be placed inside the Boundary
• 'Areas': Areas of the garden that contain plants. Areas can contain other Areas, Structures, Plants, and Feature Plants. So, Areas might be 'Front Garden', 'Back Garden', 'Lawn', 'Bed' etc.
• 'Structure': Areas of the garden that don't contain plant, like paving, the shed, or the house
• 'Feature Plants': Plants that are plotted on the map individually, because of their importance (structural or emotional!).
