Valid Geocode Range

Per mapbox , here is some insight on geocode range (that I always have to google to remember): Latitude and longitude  are a pair of numbers ( coordinates ) used to describe a position on the plane of a  geographic coordinate system . The numbers are in decimal degrees format and range from -90 to 90 for latitude and -180 to 180 for longitude. For example, Washington DC has a latitude  38.8951  and longitude  -77.0364 . 

Turkeys and bugs

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we decided to ask Google for some interesting facts about Turkeys.  We learned that turkeys can swim, that baby turkeys are called poults, and most importantly that in the fall turkeys eat bugs.  To that end, we primarily focused on fixing mapalist bugs in November.  Here are just a few of the many bugs that our engineering team squashed.  Maps with more than 25,000 pins were not rendering well - fixed!  The pin filter was ignoring the icon filter but not vice versa - fixed! Pin search was failing when the icon key was not visible - fixed! When an address failed the geocoding process, the process was stopping - fixed! Also, in the spirit of the season, we’ve added some new holiday themed pins. Get to mapping once the tryptophan wears off. Many thanks, Benjy P.S. You can see the full monty of features we added this month and since this year’s reboot by checking out the ever updated release notes .
