Maps not loading

Evenin' Paul/Helen,

The maps are not loading on any associated walk. I noticed it to begin with on the Ben Vuirich page, after trying a few more, looks like it could be most or all of them!

Have reset browser, cleared cache etc. Fault still apparent.

Mozilla Firefox 79.0 on Macbook Pro. All up to date my end.

Cheers.

Larry, assuming you haven't tripped the firewall, they are loading now as far as I can see.

I've explained in another thread the map server is under great strain from massive illegal bulk downloads (though software like Maverick or Mobile Atlas Creator, which let people bulk hit tiles and leave other sites with the associated bills)

Yep... all good now Paul. Just started working again.

Shame about those folk pinching the maps. :shock:

Cheers.

Hi, I'm having this problem today - affects my Munro map, as well as individual route maps. Fairly sure it was fine up to a week ago.
I've tried two browsers on laptop, as well as mobile.

I'm not really clear on the issues about bulk downloads or firewalls - is it a temporary problem that will resolve itself, or is there something I need to look at on my settings?

Thanks.

missing maps

Can't get the OS maps for any walks on any device or browser so assume your firewall is blocking because of illegal downloads, as previously explained. Just wondered what to do, is it just a matter of waiting a day or two and trying again?

The map server was overloaded last night by more of the bulk download attempts. It is running fine today though - so you only have an issue with being blocked if they are still not working.
