Ideas and plans to talk about

following

On May 19, all Google Maps v2 application will go out of service. This affects the following Opencaching sites

* Opencaching.CZ
* Opencaching.US
* Opencaching.org.UK
* Opencaching.SE/NO

which still run old Google Maps code and are facing a map blackout. I have contacted the PL and SE/NO operators to search for solutions, i.e. to find out which sites may be updated to current PL or DE code.

Three days left, if Google keeps the deadline.

Good (?) news:
The original deprecation period has been extended from May 19, 2013 until November 19, 2013


see https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/v2/reference

And maybe it works afterwards too. Here is a quote from flopps links above:
As of this date, all applications requesting v2 will be served a special, wrapped version of the v3 API instead. We expect this wrapped version of the API will work for most simple maps, but we strongly encourage you to migrate your code to version 3 of the Maps JavaScript API before this date.

Has this happened early? It was reported yesterday that the Google cache maps on opencaching.us are no longer working. I looked at opencaching.org.uk, and nope, not working there either. I don't know about .se/.no, if anyone cares to look. I believe you need an account on all these websites to see their cache maps.

Oh, I  might add, they're identified as V3 on org.uk. v2 still works, but for me they're centered on Poland (with no caches shown), and I have to pan over for Germany and The UK.

EDIT: I've since found that v2 was on the opencaching.us server, and I didn't even know it.  :D  However, we can say that v3 is broken right now.

Well, November 19th has come and gone. We have issues at Opencaching.us. As do our fellow U.S.A. based alternative websites gpsgames.org, and especially Terracaching.com, where there maps stopped working completely!

None of the 3 admins at Opencaching.us are programmers. Can anyone possibly help us? I could post our cachemaps.php files (cachemap version 2, and cachemap version 3).

I'm not a developer and I think I can't help you, but just take a look at https://github.com/OpencachingDeutschla ... s/map2.php This is the file we use in germany and it is running the actual google maps API. And don't forget to provide your GM API key at https://github.com/OpencachingDeutschla ... st.inc.php HTH! :)

Thank you for the reply. I don't know that would work, but I'd be willing to try it!!
