The map doesn't load. Do I need to install any software ?
I'm using Internet Explorer and there seem to be limitations
If you are still using Internet Explore 6 (you can find out by clicking on "About Internet Explorer" in the "File" menu) then you will not be able to use all features of SmartShanghai maps. You should be able to see the map, but no restaurants or other listings on the map. Basically, Internet Explorer 6 is an unsave, outdated browser and it's just too slow to handel the map properly. You should really upgrade to a new browser. Either install the latest verion of Internet Explorer (Version 8 is the latest as of this writing), or change to a good browser, we recommend either Firefox or Safari.
There are many streets missing on your map.
Yes, we know. We draw those maps ourselves, and unfortunately we don't have the resources to capture every single street and lane. That's why our map is limimted to major streets of Puxi and Pudong. We keep adding stuff, and we'd espcially apprecitate if you would help to identify wrong information on the map, but we are not trying to cover every small laneway. If you need a more detailed map, we still recommend you use Google's English language Shanghai map.
How can I add my business to the map
All listings that you see on the map (Restaurants, Bars etc) are pulled from our huge listings directly. Get your business listed through this link and we'll automatically add it to the map.
What software are you using for your map
SmartShanghai is using OpenLayers, an open source alternative to commercial maps such as Google Maps or Yahoo Maps.
