Hmm, yes ....
All maps have certain commonality, but also their own 'control' functions, and this map has more than most for navigation.

So ... worth mentioning

Zoom ...
+/- buttons top left zoom at map center.
<double-click> zoom IN at cursor.
<scroll-wheel> zoom at cursor.

Pan ...
'grab' map and drag (day / night catches up when you let go)
'grab' and drag crosshairs - map centers on location (Crosshairs are always map center. Co-ords above 'Fire' button)

GoTo ....
<click> on marker to zoom in and center
<click> on user in table to zoom in and center (click on website link = new window)
Country - start typing in options box in header at top. - map does 'best fit' (see also below)
find anywhere - click magnifying glass top right and start typing (very powerful, but sometimes unexpected results)
lat / lon - with options panel right-hand side open, enter decimal coordinates in boxes next to green 'GO' button.

Reset map to best fit of ALL markers - <click> top section of users table.

There are probably a few more possibilities I've forgotten.

Minor tweaks ...
Lat / Lon 'headers' changed to red.
lat / lon code modified to give decimal (+/-) co-ords.

It seems that unless you are actually trying to access google data you can use the map tiles as much as you like (no API or key) :o

So, unless someone with a big stick says differently ... Satellite option is now google maps with extra zoom 8-)

Some of you may want to tweak your coo-ords :geek:

This year the W.H.O. has enlisted the help of the worlds greatest logistics manager to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to over 400 drop-off points.
These will be delivered between 10:09 24 Dec (UTC) and completed by 11:00 25 Dec (UTC)

Progress can now be viewed on the map http://beteljuice.co.uk/CuMap/index.php

Hint: Select the layer called "SANTA ..." :D

Experiment ...

Previously RED marker was for NO website - but everybody seems to have one !
... so
When link is used with ?userID=yourname not only will the 'Home' button appear and you have 'Zap' immunity, but also your marker will be RED in the sea of green.
Santa version only 'til I get feed-back, ie. back to normal after Boxing Day.

It does not work for me: not red and no home button.
Is this a start to make a distinction of tools?
