We sometimes get emails saying that they can not draw on the map. Instead of drawing, the map moves with the mouse. Sometimes the distance tool does not show the distance.

If this happens, run the application in a new tab or new browser window of Chrome. The reloading seems to be causing the problem. A new version will be out soon.

Hope it helps

GmapGIS V2

The current version of GmapGIS utilizes Google Maps API V2. The API V2 will not be supported by Google after May 19, 2013.
We are upgrading GmapGIS to new Google Maps API V3 so that new version of GmapGIS is up and running before this date.
It is anticipated that all functions and tools may not run smoothly from the day one. Possibly, links / files saved by the previous version may not work in the beginning. This is just because we are little short of time.
For this reason, the user are alerted that they should save their locations, shapes and coordinates etc. This is a totally free application. and we don't assume responsibility for any lost work.
The new version of GmapGIS will make use of several new capabilities provided by Google Maps API V3.
This inconvenience will only be for a short time.

How to Set home map view.

If you have come to GmapGIS through a map link, you will see a map drawing.

Clicking on will take you to a fresh map of the world.
You can move around on the map just as you would on the Google maps. To set you home loaction for the start up map, just move to place and choose right zoom level, and pick up down menu on the right side of  HOME button on the Tool bar. You will see a menu item: Set new home. Click this item and GmapGIS will always open the current map view when you visit

GmapGIS is being upgraded to utilize Google Maps API version 3. All known bugs will be fixed and new capabilities added shortly. Thanks for all the emails providing feedback and comments.
