Map Size - User Control?


#1

I noticed that the site can render maps in different sizes. I have a 19" monitor with 1280x1024 resolution, so the default map is fairly small. Could map size be a user option? I opened up a bigger one and it looks great, but I have to enter the URL manually.

We’re going to add the interface to do that, likely through a profile setting. You’re right that all the back-end technology for generating the map is there. I should mention that the server can actually authenticate your request for a different size (or flight/airport/etc) and the map team controls the ability to enforce that or not based on abuse that we’re experiencing, so tweaking the URL isn’t guaranteed to work.
