Not sure who wrote your html for you but you REALLY need to rethink how the images are displayed. Right now, you have the full size (15000x15000) jpgs loading just to display the website and then you're using the IMG tag scalar to make them display smaller. This is bad form and a complete waste of bandwidth. You should use photoshop or some other program to make an acutal thumbnail of the correct size. This way, loading your page won't take so long and then the user can decide if they want to download the fullsize or not.grason1129 wrote:I used the Public Domain USGS topographical maps to create what I hope is a great resource for hikers in the Mount Hood area.
Please note the web page is graphic heavy and could take about 20-30 seconds for maps to load on broadband.
These maps are located on my new blog and it has a large section devoted to a multi-year west coast climbing tour of mine. Please ignore the unpolished nature of my site as it is a live beta at this point and only launched a few days ago.
Please hold off judgment on the site for a month or so and enjoy the maps!!

Why not download GoogleEarth? It's free.
Google Earth will generate 3D pictures - and even color in the terrain correctly.
