Google Maps should work better now with the new code contributed by wisi :)

Nice progress! If you click on EBT menu (when you get to google dot map of course) in top right corner, you can see choose to see your dot count, which then appears in menu title, and dot grid, which at least for me works faster than in Google Earth (plus it works for the whole world)

Actually I have also been wondering that for quite a while.
Always found the "city locator for entered notes" quite useful.
It allowed me to spot some "not so accurate locations" and ask for them to be corrected.
Any idea if and when we could have these features back?
Thanks.


Although the quote is older than 2 years, it is still a topic to me. I really miss the possibility to see the different locations of entered bills. Does any technical forum member know how to add this option to the Google Dotmap? It used to be my favourite :(

It is a gradual change of color based on the number of notes in that dot. I think that the scale is logarithmic. So your highest dot is red, but a dot with 1/2 times the number of notes of your red dot is probably only one step lighter than the red dot. The color on the map is personal, based on the maximum number of notes in your own map (if that is 500, this dot is red, and if it is 750.000 the dot is also red). This means that you cannot compare the color of a green dot between your own and somebody elses dot.

Yes, correct.

For the programmers out there:

Code: Select all

$colours = array();
for($i=0;$i<50;$i++) {
   $red   = (int) ((6*(50-$i) + 24*$i)/50);
   $green = (int) ((5*(50-$i) + 253*$i)/50);
   $blue  = (int) ((243*(50-$i) + 53*$i)/50);
   $colours[$i]=imagecolorallocate($im,$red,$green,$blue);
}
for($i=0;$i<50;$i++) {
   $red   = (int) ((24*(50-$i) + 244*$i)/50);
   $green = (int) ((253*(50-$i) + 36*$i)/50);
   $blue  = (int) ((53*(50-$i) + 0*$i)/50);
   $colours[$i+50]=imagecolorallocate($im,$red,$green,$blue);
}
$colours[100]=$colours[99];
...
if($count[$x][$y]>0) {
   imagefilledrectangle($im,
   (int)(getX($minlat+($maxlat-$minlat)/$ycells*($y-0.25),$minlon+($maxlon-$minlon)/$xcells*($x-0.5), $area, $type)),
   (int)(getY($minlat+($maxlat-$minlat)/$ycells*($y+0.75),$minlon+($maxlon-$minlon)/$xcells*($x+0.5), $area)),
   (int)(getX($minlat+($maxlat-$minlat)/$ycells*($y+0.75),$minlon+($maxlon-$minlon)/$xcells*($x+0.5), $area, $type))-1,
   (int)(getY($minlat+($maxlat-$minlat)/$ycells*($y-0.25),$minlon+($maxlon-$minlon)/$xcells*($x-0.5), $area))-1,
   $colours[(int)(99*log($count[$x][$y])/log($maxval))]);
   $dots++;
}

This is actually for the traditional dotmap (not Google Map), but the colours are allocated similarly in both.
