Speed Improvements for Mapping Site

Here is just a quick update on my site that allows you to map multiple locations on Google Maps. If you use the site regularly, you may have noticed that it has been slow, and sometimes unresponsive, lately. (Also, you may have noticed some very wonky behavior today, but that was because I was tweaking it).

The site has been growing in popularity lately, and that has been causing some performance problems, as the server it runs on just couldn’t handle the load. As of today, I have added a second server to help share the load, and keep you guys plotting your maps!

As always, please let me know if you experience any problems or have any questions.

    Just a side note that it is possible to plot multiple points on a google map now. Just save them under my maps and they’ll all show up and there’s no limit as to the number of points.

    Try mapping this:
    Carmichael, CA

    it comes up as Canada instead of California

    Ahh, you are right. That is one of the many quirks of the Google geocoding service that I use. ‘Carmichael, CA, USA’ will put the point in California, but it seems that Google considers ‘CA’ to be an abbreviation of Canada, so if there is a city in both California and Canada, it seems to go with Canada.
