      I am looking to make some improvements to the Google Map display on the “Place hierarchy” page, similar to the ones already made on the individual pages Google Map tab involving making the map larger.

      I’ve made the change on my own site here: http://www.our-families.info/placelist.php

      Your comments and opinions would be very welcome.

      Couldn’t respond to your request for thoughts about the change to the Google Maps in the forum ‘Updates / New Release Announcements. It was closed to replies.

      Took a quick look at the new map layout and prefer it. It really fits well with the kiwitrees theme. Not important to me but one thing to consider; small screen users may have to scroll a bit more.

      Thanks. I forget that section was closed. I’ve moved it so now open to replies.

      I don’t think small displays should be an issue. Have you tried? It’s working ok on my iPad.

      I would expect it would look the same, but with different colours from other themes. Would you expect something more, or less?

      Checked out the new map page on a tablet; looks OK.

      As an aside, you have a Grand Rapids, Missouri pointing to Grand Rapids, Minnesota. I don’t believe there is such a place as Grand Rapids in Missouri. The only two I know of are in Minnesota and Michigan. I spotted it because I visit the Minnesota town quite regularly.

      I was not sure whether I liked it to begin with, but the more I’ve visited and used the new layout the more I am liking it. I think my biggest gripe with Google Maps is the “ribbon earth” of the Top Level settings where we see two Asia and two Africa. It’s a pity it could not kick off with something like:

      Thanks, Now fixed. It should have been Grand Rapids, Michigan, too many “MI”s 🙂

      Yes, I couldn’t agree more. I spent far too long experimenting with zoom levels and height: width ratios but none of them made the slightest difference. At least this version fills the area completely. The old version, on my data always had black bars top and bottom.

      The problem is caused by the number and location of markers. I have seen other kiwitrees sites where the top level has perhaps only 6 or 7 top level countries, and those all in (say) Europe. In that case the top level looks far better. But as you can see, my family (in the broadest sense) are really spread far and wide.

      If you zoom one step closer, as in the image you attached you actually end up chopping off Alaska and a bunch of tine Pacific Islands. So it seems ideally we would need a 1.5 zoom option! But Google (AFAIK) don’t allow for that.
