    I’d like to redesign the display of the Google Maps tab to make better use of the available space.

    Have a look at this example and please let me know if you think it is an improvement:

    Yes, very much better. Is it also possible to redesign the GM place heirarchy location map? I seem to have two worlds with an abnormally large Antarctica! Also, place location flags do not have flagstaffs so appear to float some distance away from where they belong.

    Since I do not know how it looked before in simpl_theme I am not sure which part you changed!

    But guessing you moved the info belov the map? If yes – I agree – much better 🙂

    But in this way – what will happen with street view?

    Looks good to me. The map itself seems to fit the overall page better. It does seem to make better use of the space.

    The Google Map tab display is not theme related. It’s the same for all themes. But yes, you are right, the map now uses the full width with list of events / family below.
    Street view is not relevant here. It has never been an option on the tab display, only on the Lists > Place Hierarchy pages. I wonder if it is even worth having at all???? I think most people struggle to record GM coordinates, without needing to add Street View ones as well, surely?

    Yes it is possible, but complicated due to the additional options of street view (see comment above). But have you tried adjusting the map dimensions (Administration > Google Maps > Place Hierarchy tab) ?

    Also, place location flags do not have flagstaffs so appear to float some distance away from where they belong.

    Are you sure? I did adjust the locations when it became necessary to drop the flag poles and shadows. Looking at the ones on your world map (top level) they seem pretty accurate to me. Can you give me an example that isn’t?

    My flagpole comment was an old observation from webtrees which does, now, seem to have been corrected. Also with adjusting map dimensions … I tried to do so to my wits end a year or two ago and gave up. I shall try again. As for Street View … totally agree: I feel it is not needed in this application and would be happy to see it go for the sake of simplification.
