Maximizing Your Experience

Crafting effective prompts is a critical aspect of working with Radar, as it directly impacts the quality of the answers you receive. A prompt is a text input you provide that serves as the starting point for our response generation. It can be a question, a statement, an instruction, or any combination of these elements. The purpose of a prompt is to guide the AI in understanding the context and your request, enabling it to generate a relevant and useful output from the information held on Coast Radar.

Here are some tailored suggestions to help Radar optimise your experience.

1. Design your prompts carefully

The way you design your prompts can influence the chatbot’s responses. Make your prompts clear and specific to guide the model towards the desired response.

For example, instead of asking the chatbot, “Where is a good beach?” you could ask, “Where are the remote beaches in Cornwall?”.

This gives Radar more context to generate a more accurate response.

2. Combine requests

Ask compound questions to get more detailed insights in one go.

For example, “Can you recommend a pub in St. Ives and list nearby attractions?

3. Request comparative insights

Radar can compare destinations, places to eat, or attractions based on your criteria.

For example, “Compare the beaches in St. Ives to Padstow.

4. Delve into personalised itineraries

Share your preferences and let Radar tailor an itinerary just for you.

For example, “Plan a family day trip to Broadstairs focusing on walks.

5. Seek contextual recommendations

Radar can suggest travel plans based on events, seasons, or trends.

For example, “What’s a good destination for a summer dog-friendly beach?

6. Experiment with different formats

Information can be presented in various ways.

For example, “List 3 off-the-beaten-path attractions in Cornwall.” or “Make a table comparing amenities of the top 5 beaches in West Sussex.

7. Provide feedback and refine

If an answer doesn’t fully meet your needs, refine your question.

For example, “That’s too mainstream. Any lesser-known spots in that area?

8. Real-time data

Radar will not return real-time data in the chat, e.g. current weather forecasts and tide times. If you want this, request the location information like a beach; the link returned will be the information page that includes weather and tides.

9. Radar can get it wrong

Don’t panic. Radar sometimes struggles when we have limited data in our data set so that we may respond with a correct answer irrelevant to the user’s thought process. For example, if you ask for the nearest cafe to a beach, you may get an answer, but it may be 50 miles away as that is the closest we know.

We would recommend following any link and checking our interactive maps.
