Here is the page on my wp blog: http://chavezpark.org/park-map-3/
Zoom to the flame icon near the center; the gps coords are 37.873113, -122.31783000000001
What you see is the flare station as it was in the fall of 2015. I’ve followed this facility in some detail and know that a new piece of equipment about the size of a bus was delivered there and set down alongside the old facility in May 2016. The brown condition of the vegetation shows that the image was taken in the fall, before the rainy season that commenced in October. At the first rain the park turns green and remains green through May or June. Conclusion: the Google map image was taken no later than the fall of 2015. The Google legend on the bottom of the map claiming a 2018 date is just wrong.
Now go to the same coordinates using a browser outside a WP app and you’ll see the new flare station, that was installed in August ’16.
The story of the flare station is here: http://chavezpark.org/the-landfill-gas-flare-station/
Glad to hear it. But then why do I get a version of Google Maps that’s three years old, when I use this and other WP Gmap plugins? And a current version when I use Chrome or other browsers?
I just updated to 6.4.10 of Maps and am running 6.19 of Pro Add-on.
I’m not sure this is the fault of the plugin. I checked two other WP map plugins and they give me the same result. My suspicion is that the API key that Google issues free of charge for embedding in third party apps only entitles the user to their old map versions. Possibly you can get a current map if you pay for a higher level API key. Just a hypothesis.
Thank you for the response. Please let me know when this upgrade is implemented.
While I’m grousing, it would be helpful if there were an option to make the infowindows on the user side not only appear on mouseover but also disappear on mousedeparture.
