I'm having trouble displaying County Maps for Canada

+1 vote
22 views
I’m having trouble displaying the county maps.  I’ve tried it using IE and chrome, and different computers, and even asked friends to try.  All scenarios show the same results.

When I go to Tools / Map Counties and enter my profile name & Country/Region = Canada/Quebec and press filter, I get no map, but if I scroll down I do see the list of counties and the # of caches I’ve found in each (16 of 98).   The same thing happens for other non-Ontario provinces.

If I enter Country/Region = Canada/Ontario and press filter, I do get a map, but it is zoomed in and only shows the Waterloo county.  No other counties are shown.  Zooming in and out changes nothing.  If I scroll down I do see the list of counties and the # of caches I’ve found in each (43 of 49).   I get this same useless map if I leave region blank, and just enter Country=Canada.

If I enter Country/Region = United States/Michigan and press filter, it all looks fine.  I get a map showing all Michigan counties.  The ones where I have found caches are in green and the others are red.  Scrolling down I see the list of counties and the # of caches I’ve found in each (16 of 83).   It works fine for USA.

Other USA states are working; other Canadian provinces are not.

This is very annoying.

This looks like a bug.

Please help.

This is certainly a bug. The map is broken for Canada. In debugger, there is an error in generated Javascript code:

SyntaxError: expected expression, got ','  MapCounties:7428:31

The file:line points to this part, where are obviously missing border coordinates of the regions:

        var southWest = new L.LatLng(, );
        var northEast = new L.LatLng(, );

This is something Ganja has to look at.

The same code generatedfor Czech Republic has correct coordinates:

        var southWest = new L.LatLng(48.6165391, 15.5424246);
        var northEast = new L.LatLng(49.633255, 17.6470596);

Thanks for your answer and confirmation that it is indeed a bug.  I’m new to this support thread.  Who is Ganja and what do I have to do to get him/her to look at it, and fix it?
