No good on Netscape 7. Just get an error message, requires IE 5.5 or
higher.

Why do people build sites specific to 1 browser only?

Standard html, xml, java, etc should work with any browser.

Wasn't the saying something like "the best thing about standards is that
there are so many to choose from" ? :)

The application closely resembles what has been adopted at my work -
our applications are slow (a helluva lot of data), but nice. It uses
ESRI's enterprise mapping products - ArcIMS and ArcSDE.

Make of that what you will!

Pity the developer is probably of the kind that doesn't look at logs
-- they'd see a large number of people getting as far as the error
page and going no further.

dunno, call me old fashioned , but give me a map I can spread out & take it in all in at one go.

Topography lines would be nice, after all it is 2005.

What about DTEI in SA?

They've got contours!

or to see some wacky contours go straight here:

Contours would be handy. I looked at the Vicroads site and tried an
alternate wiggle on my trip to work. I wound up doing a couple of km worth
of climbing in a couple of hundred metres. On a topological map, the contour
lines would have been getting awfully cosy.
