New placement for map controls
Donnerstag, 10. Februar 2011

Google changed the design and usability of the map controls for zooming and map type selection in their latest version (3.4) of the Google Maps API. With these changes, we needed to adapt the layout of our site, so we moved the map type selection below the main header and centered the zooming and StreetView controls on the right.

First we wanted keep these two controls (zooming and StreetView) on the top right, but a litte bug (or feature, we are still not sure) prevented us from doing so. If we can resolve these issues, we will move them back up.

And talking of bugs, we got a nice little bug report from one of our users, helping us finding a bug in the upload process (thanks Jo!). Meaning, if you ever stumble over a bug on our site in the future, please let us know! Just write a short mail to We are really thankful for these!
