Map pins not displaying

Post by bekateen »

Hi Jools,

When I look at various pages in the CLOGs, I don't see any map pins.

Cheers, Eric

I think this has something to do with it. Google made it more complex, but it should still work for a while. Given, I've not changed any of this code from some years there is something in this that must have broken it.


Bah. I need to do some rework....

OK, so the specific method we were using to draw pins on the map was switched off by Google. There are many new alternatives and what I've done is implemented a simple one. For now, this is half fixed because I still need to work out how to differentiate between type localities and occurrences (purple and green).

Cheers,

Jools

Thanks for update. :-)

To be honest, I like the old stars for type localities, but we work with what we have, so a color difference works too.

Cheers,
Eric
