Hmm, when I checked your photo it seems that for some countries there is no detailed data available which is why the map is not displaying properly when it's zoomed in. Maybe I should take into account which country it's being posted to and if detailed data is available, ie Japan, US, etc, zoom in more, otherwise zoom out further by default.

"Today I can not post my photo because of this..."

This is optional. If you leave it blank you should be able to post a photo like always.

I think it would be good to have some instructions on using the location feature. I used Google Earth to locate where my photo was taken (http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Africa/Liberia/photo283236.htm). First of all it didn't take cooridinates with N or W. Then I found decimal coordinates. This worked but located me in the wrong place because Google doesn't put - signs on the coordinates. I finally got it right but I think that some instructions for users is necessary.
By the way I think this is a terrific feature. Thank you for the effort in getting this to work.

I have made a try tonight on a shot from my living place and I cannot precisely get the right place even using the google earth location on the view with their software (free) and with the indication from the official french geographic institute.
In a first time I falled on Didi's place in center France and then on Saint Brieuc which is 25 kms from the shooting place....
If some one get an Idea ?
