    and what about doing those dots a bit more little? the italian ones are so close and it's hard to chose the right one.

    OK - I see it in Firefox. In case you are interested, you can't see the map with Safari.

    That's pretty cool! But is it possible to re-place the dots? One of my locations (Dropzone Airport Luetzellinden) isn't placed correctly (I could send coordinates or a screenshot with the correct location if you want). I think it would be good if there were a field for the coordinates in the submit form.
    Oh, and did you already mark all locations on the map? Cause one of my locations (Frankfurt Eastend) is missing.

    @ gemma81de

    Yes it is possible to replace the dots, unfrotunatley it has to be done by someone at LSI. It will be relocated shortly, and please drop a comment with the correct location.

    All of the published locations have not been added to the map but they will be, please endure a little bit more :)

    Best

    I am using Safari 1.3 on a Mac OSX. I still can't see it with this version of Safari, but every other browser works fine.

    I like the picture ... my guess is it was shot with a Horizon looking north from the CN tower in Toronto.

  24. gvelasco

    I added a location with a few extra pictures thinking I could delete the extraneous ones, but I was wrong. The extras were shot around the area of interest, but I would have preferred to remove them.

    @myloveletter: thanks for letting us know. have you tried updating safari. as right now it's at version 3.1.2 - 1.3 is a bit dated...

    How do we know when a submission has been approved?

  36. lucasjakobsson
    lucasjakobsson ·

    @ gvelasco

    As an editor has to check a submission before it is posted online it can take a few days for your submission to be published. At the moment there is no notification that lets you know when a post has been published so for the present Im afraid you will have to check in the magazine.

  37. -a-l-b-e-r-t-o-
    -a-l-b-e-r-t-o- ·

    Windows XP version 5.1 Service Pack 3 + Internet Explorer 7
    thanks!!!

    -a-l-b-e-r-t-o- ·

    With Mozzilla i can do it...some observation about dots location: 1) the location FROM SAPA to BAC HA is close to Lao Cai close to chinese boarder and not close to Da Nang, which is more in the south; 2) Chau Doc is not in Cambodia close to Siem Reap (Angkor Wat) but in Vietnam close to the boarder between Vietnam and Cambodia...
    thank u
    waiting for other locs

  39. -a-l-b-e-r-t-o-
    -a-l-b-e-r-t-o- ·

    dots location observation (DLO): the location Agkor Wat is close to Siemreab

    So I was touring the new map (which is fantastic by the way), and noticed a button in the genreal Montreal area with a location labeled 'Bourbon Street'. Thinking it was interesting that there would be a Bourbon Street in Canada, I clicked on it and found that it was indeed the (in)famous Bourbon Street of New Orleans, only placed waaay up north and probably at this point a little chilly. Same goes for the Voodoo spiritual temple location. Just thought someone might want to know...
