Maps - Performance

Postby DNA » Sun Apr 04, 2010 6:18 pm

Any suggestions for improving the rendering of these maps, the PCT in particular. I have a good internet connection, reasonably fast machine, and am running IE7. Every click, whether to zoom, reposition or whatever, generally takes > 30 sec. It's very painful. IE reports a CPU sucking script running, and asks if I waht to kill it. This would appear to be the painting of the trail line, so I leave it alone.

The drawing of the trace is quick and painless.

It sounds like you are trying to load waypoints, which really slows down a machine.

It could also be the mileages. If you're on a older PC you might try turning off the mileages.

Additonally, FireFox 3 has a javascript engine that is far superior to any other browser. So if you do a lot of web browsing you might consider that as well.

I haven't intentionally done anything with waypoints. The location type box at the top has nothing selected.

HUGE difference with Firefox however. No pain now. Thanks much. Great to be able to follow the trail this way.

+ Login, go to the maps.
+ Select the marker type from the ''Location Type" list box
+ Click the "Edit Markers" link just below the list box.

You are now given a form to fill in. When adding the lat/lon you can either drag the marker to the desired location or type in a lat/lon in decimal degree format, ie: 40.012 -120.987

That's about it!
