ZoomIn fixes and improvements
We’ve been working hard over the past fews months fixing bugs and making improvements to ZoomIn.
Here’s a summary of what we’ve been working on:
- Activity Feed – Here you can see the last 20 actions by our members on ZoomIn.
- Popular places – This is where you can see the 10 most popular places, today, this week and of all time.
- GeoRSS – We’ve added GeoRSS feeds for the latest places, photos and comments . (For an example of what the GeoRSS feed looks like, have a look at this example on Google.)
- Nearby places – On the information page, you can find out what’s nearby your favourite places eg. Here’s whats nearby popular 3c bar.
We been make lots of improvements to the functionality on ZoomIn.
- We improved our default URL system so that now you can directly link to a map of an address or place or link to information about that address or place. eg. Map of Arrowtown and Information on Arrowtown.
- Search – We’ve made improvements to the search, so that it’s more accurate.
- Design – From your feedback, we’ve redesigned the map results page to fix a number of layout bugs and remove whitespace thus maximising the map. We’ve also added a new navigation slider to the map.
- Photos – We added bigger thumbnails on the information pages and user profile pages. We’ve also allowed users to change the default picture for a place.
- Enabled custom IFrame sizes for users who are embed maps on their web page or blogs.
And a whole raft of bug fixes. We’ve got a more new functionality and improvements in the wings that will be released soon.
