Changes to Google affecting Map

posted Aug 21, 2017, 3:53 AM by Simon Walker   [ updated Aug 21, 2017, 11:01 AM ]

Due to Google's decision to withdraw support for 'highcharts', we are sorry to inform you that the visual representation on the map will not work. With regret, we will no longer share maps via google docs. We have created a new cloud-based tool - if you would like to see how this works, please contact Simon Walker (

There have been a few changes with Google and we have adapted the first part of the tool to work with these. The mapping process has been ported over and we are happy to share the update. Please email me for info.

A busy week! I've set up another four accounts as well as answered some support questions. Great to see the use of the tool is still going. I am currently working on version 2 with the aim of launching in June. Does anyone want to BETA test?

Since the last post we have now had another 6 requests to use the toolkit, which is fantastic news. We are receiving requests from around the world as well as other institutions in the UK - the community is growing. It will be great to start sharing experiences of the tool and we are just in the process of developing our online forum. More to follow!

One week on

Well, it has been just over a week since the workshop and it appears things are going well. We have had a few requests for support and these have been completed plus a few new users! I have had a look at the Google stats for the site and we are generating a lot of interest!

If you are using the tool in your institution, or demoing it to a anyone, we would love to hear from you! Please email me any thoughts or comment on this blog. :-)

Thanks again!
