If you zoom in too quickly, Google Maps may claim that it does not have the needed maps. Zoom back out, wait a few seconds to allow maps to load in the background, and then zoom in again.

If more than one point is mapped for the marked individual, the map also displays chevrons to guide you from the first sighting (shown as a green icon) to each subsequent sighting over time. The chevrons do NOT represent a path of travel, just a sequential link across time.

Jua-Mari Strehler
"There are many things on this planet that seem larger than life, and they remind us to know our place on this earth and have respect for creation. Whale sharks are the biggest fish in the ocean, and they happen to be my favorite animal, and I think there are many reasons to protect them, including that whole tourism industries are based on their presence and they are beautiful and majestic. "
