Map Issue

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed that some of the Google Maps features have disappeared, particularly the ability to choose satellite view in addition to terrain view. I can't figure out why this happened; I changed none of my code and one day they just disappeared. Other websites don't seem to have this problem.

Is there anyone reading who might be able to take a look at the code and tell me what is wrong? I'll be glad to send along my source code, or you could view the source on one of the map pages.

If not, I'm looking at rewriting the map pages again. I feel like I just did that not too long ago, though it's probably been a few years now, but I really don't want to since those pages all work other than the missing options. If I do wind up doing a rewrite, I'm considering moving away from Google Maps and over to something like Nokia's HERE maps. (Bing and Open Street View lack terrain maps, which are important for this type of website.)

Any thoughts or opinions?

Trip's Sudden Unexplained Absence

Just wanted to let everyone know that the sudden dearth of updates from me to the website in general is due to my purchasing of a house. It's eating every bit of time I have, and even time I don't have. Closing is tomorrow, then moving over the weekend (vacation time has been taken for it, too), then hopefully, shortly after that, a return to normal.

Want Net Neutrality? Support Broadcasting.

(Disclaimer: The opinions below are strictly my own, and are not necessarily those of Trip Ericson nor those of his employer.)



I don’t know if you've heard, but net neutrality - the basic principle that the “series of tubes” that carry the Internet to your home don’t discriminate between one source of content or another - seems to be on life support. The FCC’s proposed net neutrality rules would seem to destroy the village in order to save it, allowing for “paid prioritization” that would seem to completely undermine the core principle of net neutrality. The Internet has exploded in opposition; when John Oliver gave a call to arms on his HBO show earlier this month it reportedly crashed the FCC’s commenting site, and on Tuesday several Democrats in both houses of Congress introduced legislation that would go over the FCC's head to outright ban paid prioritization.
