Large Maps taking long time to load

Large Maps taking long time to load

ProMaps 1.05

I have a map with 16-locations which takes a lllllooooooooonnnnnnnngggggggggggg time to load.........we are talking in the minutes range, sometimes. This is using FireFox 3.5.2. Not it is not my connection (Comcast getting 13-17mb download speeds)

classes.htm (at the bottom of the page).

Also, Using IE8 and Chrome, the initial map does not load at the proper zoom/center. It starts with the whole USA map.

Another issue...........Can you please add an option to change the setCenter value when editing/putting in the addresses in DW? Having to remember to always go back and manually edit the map_1.js file is a royal pain. I have to edit the map.setCenter(point, 13) to change it to 10.

I am uploading the wagmp_map_1.js file.

Since you are using a HTML page, the points on the map are not getting cached. If possible, can you try saving the page as PHP then re-apply the map? That should allow the points to be cached which improves map loading time considerably.

I don't see any difference in load speed:

classes.php

It also doesn't explain the IE weirdness?

Its still not creating the cache file for some reason. Can you try making a blank file and uploading it to give the cache a starting point?

Make a file called _promaps_geocache.xml and upload it to this directory: /Resources/Mens_Fraternity/_promaps_cache/

Static Maps vs Dynamic Maps

I was reading on Google's API site about some of the capabilities of the Google Map API.

I seems that there is an option to have a static Google Map. Is this an option for the extension?

Also, I'm curious. To what level does the Pro Maps for Google adhere to or support the Google API in terms of all the functionality it provide?

It seems there is a ton of options but they are not provided for in Pro Maps. I understand why, but I'm curious what your thoughts are.

Still no difference. I even updated the map to add more locations, thus recreating all the .js/.php files. Nothing new appears in the "_promaps_cache" directory and the .xml file I added does not change. Yes, I checked permissions.

I am going to upload/attach all the pieces-parts including the page code.

Have you tried manually creating that file. If it is having trouble creating it, that will often make it start working... also if you use latitude and longitude rather than an address it will speed things up considerably.
