  • To help you get your maps code up and running, Brendan Kenny and Mano Marks point out some common mistakes and how to fix them in this video. Look for typos. Remember that JavaScript is a case-sensitive language.

  • Check the basics - some of the most common problems occur with the initial map creation. Such as: Confirm that you've specified the zoom and center properties in your map options.

  • Ensure that you have declared a div element in which the map will appear on the screen.

  • Ensure that the div element for the map has a height. By default, div elements are created with a height of 0, and are therefore invisible.

  • Refer to our examples for a reference implementation. Use a JavaScript debugger to help identify problems, like the one available in the Chrome Developer Tools. Start by looking in the JavaScript console for errors.

  • Post questions to Stack Overflow. Guidelines on how to post great questions are available on the Support page.

I tend not to review many crime maps on Maps Mania. Mainly because I have serious concerns about how accurate they are and the possibility that some crime maps paint a distorted picture of the real levels and locations of crimes.

The Locals & Tourists map of Twitter users was inspired by Erica's own 2010 Locals and Tourist maps posted on Flickr. These maps show where (in a number of different global cities) photographs have been submitted to Flickr by tourists and where they have been submitted by tourists, based on how far the user's profile location was from a photo's location.

Like Erica's original maps Logan's map provides a fascinating insight into the areas of our towns and cities which are frequented by tourists and those areas which seem to remain only visited by locals. In the screenshot at the top of this post you can see how in San Francisco, in the Embarcadero and Fisherman's Wharf iNaturalist receives lots of entries from tourists. On the otherhand the trails around Mt. Tamalpais feature observations mainly submitted by locals.

The NFHL is made from effective flood maps and Letters of Map Change (LOMC) delivered to communities. NFHL digital data covers over 90 percent of the U.S. population. New and revised data is being added continuously. If you need information for areas not covered by the NFHL data, there may be other FEMA products which provide coverage for those areas.

The sheer amount of human effort that goes into Google's maps is just mind-boggling. Every road that you see slightly askew in the top image has been hand-massaged by a human. The most telling moment for me came when we looked at couple of the several thousand user reports of problems with Google Maps that come in every day. The Geo team tries to address the majority of fixable problems within minutes. One complaint reported that Google did not show a new roundabout that had been built in a rural part of the country. The satellite imagery did not show the change, but a Street View car had recently driven down the street and its tracks showed the new road perfectly.

It's probably better not to think of Google Maps as a thing like a paper map. Geographic information systems represent a jump from paper maps like the abacus to the computer. "I honestly think we're seeing a more profound change, for map-making, than the switch from manuscript to print in the Renaissance," University of London cartographic historian Jerry Brotton told the Sydney Morning Herald. "That was huge. But this is bigger."

The maps we used to keep folded in our glove compartments were a collection of lines and shapes that we overlaid with human intelligence. Now, as we've seen, a map is a collection of lines and shapes with Nick Volmar's (and hundreds of others') intelligence encoded within.

It's common when we discuss the future of maps to reference the Borgesian dream of a 1:1 map of the entire world. It seems like a ridiculous notion that we would need a complete representation of the world when we already have the world itself. But to take scholar Nathan Jurgenson's conception of augmented reality seriously, we would have to believe that every physical space is, in his words, "interpenetrated" with information. All physical spaces already are also informational spaces. We humans all hold a Borgesian map in our heads of the places we know and we use it to navigate and compute physical space. Google's strategy is to bring all our mental maps together and process them into accessible, useful forms.

Maptive is a cloud-based mapping software built on Google maps but with much more customization features. Maptive provides you with a wide array of options to design the perfect custom map for your needs. If you are looking for a mapping solution with more customizable map styles and mapping tools like a heat map generator, radius map tool, geographic boundary territory tool, and multi-stop route planner then this is likely the option for you.

I frequently use google maps to plan trips. My workflow is to move the view around to look for interesting looking locations and then search to see if there are restaurants, sites... near by. However searching for "restaurants" usually, though not always moves the view to my home location. I am wondering is there a way to tell google maps to not change the view when searching? If not I'd be curious if there is a logic to when searching changes the view or not? (One solution I'm aware of but don't prefer is to include location information in the search, for example searching "restaurants nyc", I'm not inclined to this solution as usually I'm not aware of how to ensure the scope of my search matches the view I'm interested in). I use maps on the Chrome browser.

I don't recall exactly what I saw when I set up Google Maps from the tile in the app, but I know that it did not send me to the gallery. When I tapped on the Maps tile in the app to set up Maps, I followed the directions and clicked on a button which took me to screen where I downloaded maps onto my phone. I never did need to go to the Gallery to find the Maps app. 041b061a72
