"When you hover an icon, its thumbnail (320) is downloaded and stored in cache" - waiting every single time for a new image would be irritating. Maybe it would be feasible to start downloading at least some subset of thumbnails without manual action from user? Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 16:59, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

You need to click on the icon to see the image and whenever you do that, the thumbnail of the next and the previous one in the sequence is downloaded. So I think that to the only problem is if someone starts clicking on random icons. Also, downloading a thumbnail shouldn't take too long. Maybe, if a thumbnail is downlaoded, the closest ones toit could be downloaded too. Nokutu (talk) 17:27, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Ideas suggestions

Mapping with mapillary pictures would be easier and more similar to mapping with geotagged images, if you could add the following features:

  • whenever the mapillary layer is visible, make the mapillary icons selectable even it the mapillary layer is not the active layer;
  • in the image viewer, add a button to center map view on the selected image;
  • in the image viewer, add a button to switch zoom between best fit and 1:1.--Kaitu (talk) 14:15, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
About the first thing, the problem is that I can't modify the standard clicking system, so if an image is close to a node for example, I would have to override the whole clicking mechanism. About the other 2, they look pretty nice so I'll try to implement them as soon as possible. Thanks. Nokutu (talk) 08:31, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean with overriding the clicking mechanism. If you mean that when an image is close to a node (for example) there's a risk to select both the picture and the node with a single click, that's actually the way it works whenever a Geotagged images layer is set to visible. This problem can be managed by zooming the map enough to separate the photo pointer from the node. A bit annoying, but I still find it far more convenient than continuously swithching betweem data and photo layer --Kaitu (talk) 21:36, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
