Max Zoom

Oct 12, 2010 at 7:23 PM

Hi, could someone share with me the code that needs to be changed to get the max zoom out of Google maps, i notice that this control does not zoom in as close as the regular Google maps.

Thanks Mark

I noticed this also.  i just set the max zoom for everything to 20 because it does not seem to be detecting it correctly.

I am not so sure that there is no way to find the max zoom. Google appears to do it - if you look around on the satellite view they have areas of different resolution, and adjust their zoom scale when you move into an erea with more or less detail. I also see that they get http 404 errors (but hide them by displaying an upsized lower resolution tile) when you are at the edge between two area with different levels of detail. This is something that I would like to dig deeper into when I get some time - unless someone already has done that. Until then I have set max zoom of 21 for the google maps, and live with getting http 404 errors some of the time.
