Setting Default Map View?

Setting Default Map View?

Greetings!

I was wondering if anyone knew how to (or where to change) in the code change the default map view from Map, to either Satellite or Hybrid using this extension?

Any help would be appreciated!

In the wagmp_map_1.js file, find the following:
function wagmp_map_1() {
if(GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
if(!document.getElementById('wagmp_map_1')) return false;
var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById('wagmp_map_1'));


and add this on the next line:
map.setMapType(G_SATELLITE_MAP);



The following is from the google map api introduction:
introduction.html


The following map types are commonly used in the Google Maps API:

* G_NORMAL_MAP displays the default road map view
* G_SATELLITE_MAP displays Google Earth satellite images
* G_HYBRID_MAP displays a mixture of normal and satellite views
* G_DEFAULT_MAP_TYPES contains an array of the above three types, useful for iterative processing.
* G_PHYSICAL_MAP displays a physical map based on terrain information.

Jason, that worked awesomely!

That is a great reference, I spent hours yesterday trying to find this, but nothing as specific and exact as what you have provided me with.

I will save this for future reference!

Thank you!

Much appreciated!

Jason, would this not be a good feature request to add in to the Google Maps pro extension as well as the ability to customize the zoom level setting of the map (a question that has been asked repeatedly in this forum)?

Having them as entries that can be filled out/selected in the wizard would be a nice upgrade!

Thanks again...
