Can I remove the cache?

Took out the code

I went ahead and took out the code that gets the LAT LONG by address in the wagmp.cfm file I use.

Did not see any difference in load speed.

I will now look into loading the map first then the points.

My wagmp.cfm file is now this....
<cfquery name="qry_members" datasource="#application.dsn#" username="#application.dsnuser#" password="#application.password#">
SELECT [mem_id]
FROM [memberstbl] LEFT JOIN [tblmemLatLon]
ON [memberstbl].[mem_id] = [tblmemLatLon].[PK_ID]
WHERE memberstbl.delete_status <> 1
AND memberstbl.mem_id <> 171
ORDER BY memberstbl.member_name
function WAMapRef(mapObj) {
this.obj = mapObj;
this.directions = false;
this.icons = [];
this.markers = [];
this.addresses = [];
this.points = [];
return this;

function WAMapPoint(theMarker, theAddress, theIcon) {
this.icon = theIcon;
this.marker = theMarker;
this.address = theAddress;
return this;

function wagmp_map_5() {
if(GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
if(!document.getElementById('wagmp_map_5')) return false;
var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById('wagmp_map_5'));
wagmp_map_5_obj = new WAMapRef(map);
map.addControl(new GLargeMapControl());
map.addControl(new GScaleControl());
map.addControl(new GMapTypeControl());

This is the smallest I have done yet!

I see other maps around that load faster, what is different with this method?

For those of you that use ColdFusion, yes, for some reason I needed to put my query at the top of this page even though the code generated did not.
