- Better look & feel
- URL now encodes the map type (street, satellite, topo, etc.) you're looking at so if you share the URL with someone they will automatically load the correct map
- Support for GPX files. You can upload a GPX file (up to 2MB in size) and it will display the waypoints, tracks, and routes in the file. If your GPX includes a bounding box it will recenter the map in roughly the center of your waypoints. If it does not include a bounding box, it will center at Batsto and you'll have to find your waypoints. Waypoint data (names, URLs, etc.) should show up in popups when you click on the pins.
- Icons for print & email, as well as loading the default map centered at Batsto.
I've just made some changes. Now you can hide the lat/long input box, GPX upload, and credits to give you more screen space for the maps.
If you look at it in Firefox or Safari you'll see that the controls float over the map. In IE7 you'll see that they hang out on the right side, and when you click the "hide" button the map grows. Mark, if you read this, can you look at my CSS and code (I'd be happy to mail it to you) to see what I am doing wrong.
I've tested this with IE7 (Windows), Firefox 3 (Mac), and Safari (Mac). If it's broken in something else, let me know.
It may not work the first time you try it, so just refresh the page. All it did on Safari was disappear and the map did not get any bigger. A refresh solved the problem and moved the controls to the right side, and then the hide button worked properly. A very very nice addition to that page. Thanks Ben!
