Zoomable maps

Hi Tom,

When you display records (eg tetrad counts) on the zoomable map the roads are initially all white. If you then switch to satellite, and back to maps the main roads become yellow - which is much more useful. Could this be set as the default zoomable map?

Hi Jon,

Good idea, I'll investigate. A problem with relying on Google maps is that they are free to change things and do so quite frequently. I'm not sure when the two map variants started appearing - it didn't used to be like that.
