Summit Info / Google Maps Links


#1

Why is it that for some of the links for Google Maps from the list of summits you end up looking at totally the wrong place.

Try the one for GM/WS-001 to see what happens.

Seems that was one of the number of threads that I never looked at.

I have found a way that seems make Google Maps go where your want it to, this would require a change to the web site code to generate a different URL.

It effectively gets the Google Maps site to Downloads the KML from the Sotawatch site and displays it, here is an example for GM/WS-001:

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sotawatch.org%2Fsummits.php%3Fsummit%3DGM%2FWS-001%26download&ie=UTF8&z=8&t=h
