Would it be possible to have a larger Group Map? Currently, the map displayed for a group (240x240) is smaller than the map on the front page (396x336) of the site...!!

If you can see this, you're blocking JavaScript. Or I broke the maps.

It's in the works. Google has updated the Maps API (how the NG website talks to their servers) so I have to take some time to update that code, but I'd definitely like to put expandable maps on many pages.

I've updated the maps code to use v3 of the Google Maps API, laying the groundwork for bigger maps. This was a big change and there's the chance that I broke something, so please keep your eyes open for any map bugs.

Hopefully I can add resizing in the next few days, now that I've made this update.

Hey Harkins,

seems that the map no longer updates the people & Group flags when you zoom in or out whatever's there is there and nothing else.

Thanks for letting me know, this is fixed now. The API update renamed nearly everything, including the event that I hook to know when the map moves.

Please let me know if you see any other issues.

Awesome - I can't wait to get the bigger group maps now that the new API is used!! Thank you for your hard work on this!!

Bigger maps would be a great plus. Screens are getting bigger and on a 1920x1024 display the map looks realy tiny.

This suggestion was posted a year ago - any plans on implementing it?

Thanks!! RiTz21
