I've now fixed the streetcar map problem, by changing all filenames and references so that they're consistently referring to 1939 instead of 1936. The fixes have been committed to trunk, and put up on the website.
The other two issues remain outstanding; PD will get back to me with the correct firemap URL at Malaspina, and we'll wait until the DNS has been changed before addressing the problem with Firefox and captcha, since it seems to be cookie-related.
PD has checked the new VIH site on taprlans/www, and reports only these issues:
The map itself has the date "1939" on it. The .map file (the basic definition file) is called "vicstreetcar1939.map". However. it contains pointers to images called: victoria-streetcar-1936.png victoria-streetcar-1936-key.png and this page: http://hcmc.uvic.ca/~taprhist/content/maps/maps.php has 1936 in its caption. However. if you go to the map viewer, click on the Maps menu and drill down to it. you see the caption "1939 - Streetcar routes". I think that: - The actual date is 1939. - The images are wrongly named, as are the pointers to them in the .map file. - The caption on the maps.php page is wrong. whereas the Maps menu in the map viewer is right.Waiting for PD to confirm my analysis before changing the image file names, the .map file, and the caption/link on maps.php.
The link on the page describing the 1885 Fire Insurance Plans of Victoria needs to be changed. The page in question is located at: http://hcmc.uvic.ca/~taprhist/content/maps/firemap.php The hyperlink should be redirected to: http://www.mediastudies.viu.ca/steeple/index.htm [The link currently points to an obsolete server - http://cdi.mala.bc.ca/firemaps/However, the new URL is about 1891 panorama images; it has nothing about the 1985 Fire Insurance Plans. Waiting for the correct URL from PD.
viHistory is a web site that is a teaching, learning and research tool. It's principally about the history of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, but it is also a vehicle for exploring the larger field of Canadian history during the late 19th and early part of the 20th century. It allows census, directory and tax assessment roll data from the late 19th and early 20th centuries to be searched in many ways. It also incorporates IMaP to display historical maps. The project director is Dr. Patrick A. Dunae.
