google maps should have a default zoom of 8

Reported by Scott Downe | June 15th, 2011 @ 11:39 AM | in 0.7

Right now we default to zoom that shows the whole planet. Zoomed all the way out.

Really, there is not much point in doing this. Just default to 8 as that has proved to be the most usable.

Another idea, is if they have a valid location plugged in, default to 8, but if they don't have a default location, zoom out to the whole planet. If we don't know what to zoom into, don't zoom in. Might be too complex, so I am fine with always defaulting to 8.

This is pretty low priority, but I felt it should be filed.
