Pushpins in wrong states, zooming on wrong states

Pushpins in wrong states, zooming on wrong states

We have a page that has a dynamically loaded record set limited by each state. We have 2 issues though I think they are related:

1) Chapter_List.php?St_code=CO should be focused on Colorado (which it is) but should only have pushpins in CO, not CA. The zipcode in the database for the chapter is a CO zip but it being put in CA for some reason.

2) Chapter_List.php?St_code=WI has all the pushpins placed properly, but is zoomed on Texas instead of WI.

This had worked for over a year for us with adding a few new pieces of data each month. Not sure why is has stopped recently.

Found a way to make push pins appear in correct spot

It seems we either need lattitude and longitude or city and zip, it can't just be zip code in the data set.

I am noticing though in Firefox that California zooms in and out for a few moments before it settles down. Any way to solve this?

when it centers on California, it is because it failed to locate one of the addresses


the following code sets the failure default:
if (wagmp_map_3_obj.addressFailed) {
map.setCenter(new GLatLng(30, -98), 3);
}



you could change that to:
if (wagmp_map_3_obj.addressFailed) {
map.setCenter(new GLatLng(39.550051, -105.782067), 3);
}


to have Colorado be the new failure default.

Ok, understand on CA

Unfortunately, I can't really set it to any state as the code is dynamically used for each state depending on the variable passed at calling of the page. But I know understand why is shows CA. I might set default to be our main address in IL then.

The Texas/Wisconsin issue seems to be that 54701 and 54703 are not being recognized as Eau Claire, WI zipcodes, though 54742 seems to work. Not sure if the other zip codes are similar to something in Texas.

Thanks,

Cindy

not sure why it would return Texas for a Wisconsin zip code either, but the more information you give the Google geocoder (zip + state for example,) the more accurate the results will be.
