Map Position

The Google map seems to default to position left. Can someone tell me how to arrange for the map to appear on the centre of the page?

Thank you.

place the map in a div on your page that is centered.

create a div on your page that is the same width that you will use for the map, and add margin: 0 auto; to the div to center it.

add the map inside the centered div.

Hi Jason,

Thats seems to fix it - just had to margin auto all around as the 0, auto didn't seem to work (unless I don't understand what two of the four margin boxes I should change (I am no CSS expert!).

Just one other thing - the Google flag seems to be 100 yards from where it should be (across the street from where we are!

The Google Geocoder is not 100% accurate on translating your address to Latitude and Longitude coordinates.

if you want 100% accuracy, you will need to determine the correct latitude and longitude and enter that into the pro maps tool instead of using an address and letting the geocoder determine the values for you.

Hi Jason,

Thank you - I got there just before you replied. Using the actual lat/long fixed it!

Thanks again.
