It's just a compromise. We can also add an option for participants to show the exact coordinates of their stations to the public...

It is not necessary for me, I'm just wondering....

It does the same on mine with iOs 6.1.2, FR24 also does the same, safari is not very stable on iOS and crashes if the data rate is too high.
Ben.

NB it works fine on the iMac.

We already investigating this problem. It seems, it happens due to a bug in iOS 7 in combination with GoogleMaps. There seem to be other projects which have similar problems.

Hi Tobi,

i think safari did consume too much memory due to the number of placemarks (strikes) that have to be rendered into the map.

This exist on iPhone 5s with iOS 7.1.1 and iPhone 4 with iOS 6.1.3 too.

A possible solution temporalily solution could be, to render only strikes on the map, that are in the bounds of current view.
A second approach could be, to limit the time, that a strike is placed on the map.

The problem i have runned over with my own maps is that browsers starts to crash/slow down when the amount of markers (strikes) reach x amount. This level varys a bit between the browsers but from my tests are it somewhere between 1000 and 2000 markers. The only way to get around this is to limit the amount of shown markers to say 1500.

That is what i want to say Wink
The strikes on the map should be limited. When the limit is reached (user selectable) the oldest strikes should be removed from map.

The markers are already limited to a few hundred.

OK. Then its probably the animations and the recoloring of the markers what cause it. From what i have noted its fully possible such things needs to be forced shut off in (some of) the mobile browsers before things starts to work smoothly. I know, its a cool feature but i have runned over similar things with my own maps too, its a never-ending compromise between the coolness and core functionality.

All those animations and effects were already very limited on the mobile style. Since yesterday they are even more reduced. However, some animation is needed, otherwise you wouldn't see new strikes popping up and the real time map would be useless. So far we didn't experience much crashes any more on iDevices, but maybe that's also due to the lower strike rates now.

BTW: An own app would be great, but so far nobody want to write an official app for us. We could do it too, but there's no time for that. Rolleyes

Sorry, but there are currently no specs and no webservice. We are working on it, but it will take some longer time due to high amount of work.

As far as running it on a PC is concerned it runs extremely smoothly on firefox 29
I notice though that a link on the blitzortung.org page has been removed.

My Android phone shows the Live Maps display nicely and scales everything correctly. However, I do not see any new strikes at all. The Live Data indicator is flashing yellow very rapidly. The Background Map indicator is green and all of the selectors (Strikes, Detectors & Sound) have a check-mark in them.

I'm running on a Samsung Galaxy S3 using the default web browser on the phone. My connection is via my home wi-fi.

Any ideas what may be wrong? This is the first time I have tried to view the BO live map on my Android phone so don't know if it may be some setting I am missing or not.

Thanks Mike. Same issue on my S3. However, I do not hear the clicks on Lightningmaps.org. The note indicates it may not be available on all devices.

I'm downloading Google Chrome to see if it works any better.

Works fine with Chrome but still no audio. Seems to load and run faster than with the default browser on my S3.

Don't know what's going wrong. We've tested with an Android phone and emulators and found no problems so far.

Hi Tobi, as I mentioned above, it is now working fine with the Google Chrome browser but no audio. Audio works fine on other websites so not sure what may be wrong. This is really a great viewer. You've done a superb job putting all of this together.

I can't thank you enough for everything you and the others have done.

Tobi,

today no crash on iOS - scary, or did you solved something ?
I think it is really time, to go native on i Devices.
