Hi Mark! First of all, on the beta version, from the Flight Tracker section in the left column, when I enter KDFW as Airport Code and hit “View Airport Activity”, I come to this page:
which is obviously “Airport Information” instead. When I hit the “View Airport Information”, I get flightaware.com/live/airport/KDFW which is “Airport Activity”.
Note: Above is started from the Beta set-up via the Discussion Forum section.
Starting from root dev.flightaware.com/resources/airport/KDFW regardless of whether I click on “Airport Activity” or “Airport Information”.
I can get to KDFW Airport Activity when I go through the back door of tracking a flight number. Now I’m at dev.flightaware.com/live/airport/KDFW
Now when I click on the upper right map, I get the enlarged version titled, “http://dev.flightaware.com - FlightAware > Airport Activity > Dallas/Fort Worth Intl Airport”. I don’t see a way to get an address bar or a specific URL for this frame.
The frame is rigid is size. Resizing by grabbing the lower right corner does not work. The map seems to be complete, but there’s no scroll bar to enable display of the legend beneath the map.
The map is inert. There is no scroll, pan, zoom, filter or anything else to it. A left click changes the cursor to a small circle with a diagonal line inside it. A right click does nothing, but release of the click opens a standard IE menu. Selecting ‘Properties’ shows the following URL: "http://dev.flightaware.com/live/airport_status_bigmap.rvt?"
The browser I’m using now is IE6. (I don’t want to ‘upgrade’ to IE7.) When I posted the previous note in this topic, I was using Mozilla Firefox.
I’ve waiting a long time for this mapping upgrade. I do know what “beta” version means, so there’s no angry feelings on my part. If there’s any info I can provide to get this upgrade working, I’m more than happy to help.
