Using the Wiki
From Dragon Eye Atlas
Revision as of 21:05, 3 October 2019 by Tom
The Dragon Eye Atlas is built much like Wikipedia, which is almost certainly familiar to you. Pages are hyperlinked to other pages so you can start anywhere and browse through the world. You can also start at the Main Page to find all larger topics quickly, or use the search box at the top.
The atlas is also a Semantic Wiki, meaning it understands relations between objects. When the page for Phonas tells you that it is located within The Empire of Vericum, that is not just text, the wiki actually understands that relation. Using Semantic Search or Inline Queries, the wiki can create dynamic lists and tables with data about the world.
If you have a user account (not available yet, soon available to Patreon supporters), you can also write your own queries and searches.
All maps displayed on this wiki are interactive. The Controls are:
|move / pan||hold left button and move mouse||cursor keys|
|zoom||mouse wheel or double-click||+/- keys (with shift for faster zoom)|
|rotate left/right||hold ctrl and left mouse button and move mouse left/right||shift plus left/right arrow keys|
|pitch up/down||hold ctrl and left mouse button and move mouse up/down||shift plus up/down arrow keys|
On a touchscreen, pinch to zoom and rotate.
On many pages you will also find named entities in the text linked to the map, like this which will move the map view to the entity in question so you can find it quickly on the map. For an example, click on one of the businesses listed on the Phonas town page.
