Problems loading map
I don't get imagery at any zoom level. I did it for the demo site and also for my house and for my house I know that Google Maps has it down to lowest zoom level. I think something is broken.
I wonder which version of Google Maps is being used because the version I use directly should have on the map Street View, Map, Satellite, and Terrain.
Interesting. I've not seen that problem before. Regardless of the version used, the imagery should be the same. Can you post a link the map in question?

I looked it up in our database and found your "YourMap":
It looks fine to me -- great photos all the way down to the highest zoom. Is that the one that's not working right for you?
I'm not sure what has happened to my machine. Now I don't get satellite imagery for even my house. I get it for map and terrain but not for satellite. This has happened since I started playing this app. When I initially clicked on the demo map, I didn't get imagery. Then I entered my house and I did get it. Now I don't even get imagery for the whole US.
Actually, I saw this happen several months ago. I was helping a friend on his computer and we couldn't get imagery using his account on the local computer. Then we went into his wife's account and we could get it. I can't explain how this can happen. I have changed nothing on my machine in the past hour except turn cookies on.
I am using an ubuntu linux box with Firefox. Let me reboot the machine with an older version of ubuntu and maybe with a windows ME boot. I almost wonder if I set up a second account for myself on this machine, it may all come back. That would tell me that Firefox has been screwed up.
I have an Ubuntu box at home I can try (gOS -- good stuff for an old machine), though I imagine it works on there. It's probably some hiccup in Firefox, and I have no clue what it could be. If I find something out, I'll let you know.
I tried two other operating systems on this machine and get the same results, no satellite imagery at all but terrain, map, and street view all work.
Then I tried it on two other machines in the house and am experiencing the same thing. This tells me it's either my provider or google itself. However, if you are getting satellite imagery and I am not, it means that google is fine and something weird is happening at my end.
It's not just Firefox. I tried it with Internet Explorer and get the same thing. I even reset my router to see if some condition is affecting it. No luck. I'll see if some of my friends nearby are experiencing this.
Wow, that's really odd. Maybe a connection issue between your PC and the satellite tile server? I really don't know.
Please keep us posted, as this is quite interesting.
