Where are the Maps?

I'm not seeing any maps when I try to "explore data." I've had this problem since yesterday evening.

I was having that issue earlier. It cleared up for me, but here's what I did in the meantime:

Enter a bird and a location (that usually brought be to a blank screen with no map or markers. Then just type in a different bird. The map should then appear.

Apologies for the delayed response. We have been focusing on setting up our new Help Center in eBird (searching those articles will help answer most questions that crop up). We are now catching up on the email backlog, so apologies for the slow response.

I assume this issue has cleared up for you now? If not, please let us know.

I also have this problem, which began on 13 MAY. I click on "Explore Data", then "Range and Point Maps". Formerly, a map of the world would appear and then I could type in the species of bird I was interested in. Now, no map appears and when I type in the name of a bird species, no list of possible species appears. All of the other links and pages are working properly.

Is this an eBird problem, or perhaps a problem with my Internet Explorer settings (I've not changed any of the settings)?

Have you installed any kind of 3rd party security software lately?

Not that I know of. I'm having the problem on my work computer (a DoD machine). My home computer works just fine. My IMO says that as far as he knows, no security software has been installed or modified since 13 May. I checked other machines in my office and I can't access maps on them, either. Thanks for your response.
