map doesn't show photos

Railfan-Eric says:

I am trying to see my train photos or other's photos on the map but nothing much shows up. and my stuff doesn't. It used too. I even tried searching for Pittsburg KS but it says nothing found so i had to zoom in manually to the location. I find it weird that searching for a city doesn't find the city even though it's on the map. What's the point of tedious geotagging and adding photos to the map when the map isn't reliable at showing the photos. even when it was working it was hit and miss when the photos showed up on the map. some zoom levels they show up and other zoom levels they don't.

Your photos do show on the map, at least the 1,333 you have geotagged:

thanks for letting me know. Last night i refreshed the page multiple times and nothing showed up. Even when selecting everyone's uploads. I wonder if the map is buggy? I just checked again and the map still won't show anyones photos. I wish the map search controls wasn't in the middle of the map. They should be at the bottom of the screen not in the middle of the map. I hope the devs see this thread.

Unfortunately updating the map feature is quite neglected - there has even been a staff reply somewhere on this forum stating that the map is "low priority" or similar.

that's too bad. I am a map kind of person so I find it nice to see photos on the map. thankfully there's a railroad map website where it pulls trains pics from a certain train group on flickr and puts it to the railroad map.
