Learn about adding structures to the map.
- [Instructor] So, now we're going to add some buildings…to our map…and even though they are probably more buildings…than the ones we've indicated here in Great Thrilling…even though it's completely made up of course,…it's the important structures…we would be after, just the ones that will aid navigation.…For example, seeing the school on the right-hand side…after leaving the motorway or freeway…would be a good indicator,…turning right at the junction there…would be a good indicator with the cafe…and most churches in the UK,…if this was a UK village,…the churches are visibly for a long, long way there,…that would be a good one…and crossing the river of course…and then other landmarks as well…and the most detail normally applied…to the destination although of course,…the level of that is entirely up to you.…
So, let's add a new layer for that…and you can call that whatever you want.…I tend to call mine Structures…but you could call it Buildings or whatever you want here…and then we'll determine an appearance for it,…
