Good evening,

I'm having trouble displaying Google Layers when using the CalTopo. Just wondering if it's an issue on my end or yours.

    Hi Zach,

    We have not had any reports of issues with Google layers. Could you be a little more specific about what kind of trouble you are experiencing with displaying Google layers? Are you on the web or mobile app? What are you trying to do with them- view them in the map viewer or print? Please provide more detail on the steps you are taking, what's happening and any error messages you receive so that we can dig more into it. Screenshots are helpful too!

    Hello Meghan,

    I believe the error is on my end. I was using the web version of CalTopo on my MacBook using chrome and safari. I was having trouble with getting google layers appearing as base layers for viewing. They are the only map layer I selected. I tried again today with a windows computer and it worked fine
