#2008 new defect

Default to a map of the whole world in the Slippy Map at /user/:user/diary/new and /user/:user/account

Reported by: avarab@… Owned by: rails-dev@…

Description

When adding a new diary entry or setting your location in preferences the Slippy Map will default to London at zoom 4 or 5:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=51.5&lon=-0.1&zoom=4

Instead it should default to a map view of the whole world:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=0&lon=0&zoom=1

We're getting more users outside London (and Europe) and defaulting to a view of the globe is therefore appropriate.

Using the user's home location might be a better starting point...

Replying to tom@compton.nu:

Using the user's home location might be a better starting point...

That's already done. This is the default when there is no home location.

Harry made this change for the user page at the recent hack day.
