We install Community Remarks on our server for your community. This can either be in a folder on our server such as communityremarks.com/MyCommunity/ or you can have a custom domain such as www.mygreatmap.com setup on our server.
You provide us with the latitude and longitude for the map center and an email address to the person who will monitor the comments. You can also provide us with custom markers you would like to use.
You will receive access to the web-based administration (content management system).

If you would like to modify the look and feel of the pages, we will provide you ftp access to the template files. Here you can modify the HTML and style sheet. If you are not savvy with HTML, we can change the layout for a small fee.
Once we receive your map center coordinates, your application will be live within a couple of hours.
Adjustments to the layout could take several days, so please plan accordingly.
Once you are live, you will begin receiving emails from the comments posted to Community Remarks.

All comments are collected in a database that we can export for other uses. This spreadsheet contains the latitude and longitude of the comment and the title, category, comment, and image reference for each entry. We also track the amount of traffic your application receives through Google Analytics and provide you with monthly reports.
