Providing your Location
MapAlerter specializes in delivering localized alerts that are relevant to you. To achieve this, you must identify a "mapped location" during the registration process so MapAlerter will know which alerts you should receive. This information is requested as part of the sign up process and you must provide at least one location to set up your account. Your location is fixed and stored in the MapAlerter system, so it is important to note that there is no "location tracking" used at any stage of the process. You can update your saved location(s) at any time by logging into MapAlerter. There are three ways you can quickly propvide yor fixed location during the signup process:
Provide your Eircode: This allows MapAlerter to quickly determine your preferred location. MapAlerter includes 96% Eircode coverage. If you happen to be one of the unluck 4% then you can use the other location options:
Pick a Placename: You can select a list of well-known placenames from your county and use a location in the middle of your local area. This is less accurate than your Eircode, but it is sufficient for getting local alerts in most cases.
Pick a Location on a Map: You can use a web map on the MapAlerter signup form to tap over your preferred location. This is a simple way to manually choose your location on a map without any address searching.
