With each individual new ferry, with each individual new route, our Philippines Ferry Databases grew heavier. With the arrival of the M/V Filipinas Jagna, you needed to load over 27 Megabytes just before you could take pleasure in the routes and ships. This experienced been much far too heavy. A friend from a Philippines forum gave us some hints. We thank “Carabao” for his superb kick in the but. Now we are down at 2.6 Megabytes – slimmed down above 90 p.c.
Very first we reprogrammed the route map. It now quickly zooms in to exhibit only the community of the ferry firm. This then seems like this:
The info about the ferry organization only demonstrates up, if a person wishes to see the data. You have to scroll down from the map.
And at last the ferries are still shown in a an overlay photograph.
We are now integrating the port info into the very same webpage. This ought to all over again speed up the loading of the webpages.
