Another "Show on Map" issue

Postby jdlessley » Mon Mar 12, 2012 4:01 pm

System: Win XP SP3, Firefox 10.0.2

When the "Show on Map" link is clicked the pop-up is displayed but the map does not render. There is a red balloon location marker in the middle but no further display information in the map area.

If you zoom out it will show that it is a location off the coast of Africa for me. I am located in Arizona, USA.

That is where it is mapping. I was wondering why there was a blue background. Of course the ocean is mapped as blue. :rolleyes: I didn't know my location was due south of Ghana and due west of Equatorial Guinea. :rolleyes:

As has been mentioned in another thread, the obvious bug is that the map popup is defaulting to a latitude,longitude coordinate of 0,0. That point is where the equator crosses the prime meridian due south of Greenwich. Which is off the coast of West Africa.

The link to open the map window is not being built correctly. This is fixed and will be deployed with our next release.

Thanks for the reports.
