Outdated Watopia map image

Hey,

when viewing an activity on zwift(dot)com, an outdated image of the Watopia map is displayed. In the December 2020 update (1.0.60239) more roads (e.g. KOM bypass) were added. These roads are still not visible in that activity view.

I am the developer of ZwiftMap and use these images as a background for the maps. For that reason, ZwiftMap still shows the old roads and routes go over grass.

It would be great if you could upload the up-to-date map to zwift(dot)com. I approached the Zwift support and a Zwift employee with this issue, but somehow things are still not updated after 1.5 years.

Thank you!

That’s weird, it used to be correct (i.e. was updated with the ‘new’ roads) if you went direct via ZwiftHacks’ map URL. They’ve changed it back for some reason.

Hi @andipaetzold

Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. I’ve reached out to a higher technical authority within the Zwift organization and I’m waiting to hear back from the team. I’ll do what I can to get some attention on this issue.

Thanks again!

Hey @Steven_D,

is there any update on this topic? It’s now almost two years since the new routes were released.

Cheers

Hey,

any update on this? The new routes were released over two years ago and the image is still outdated.

Cheers

In the meantime, here’s the updated map in png (taken from the native apps)

@shooj You bumped this issue one year ago - any chance you could upload a current version of map? With the latest update the routes goes out of bounds of the existing map image. When viewing activities that use these roads on zwift(dot)com, the page looks very broken now. Same for ZwiftMap which uses that image as well.

If it’s not clear, I am referring to this file: https:// cdn(dot)zwift(dot)com /static/images/maps/MiniMap_Watopia.png

Thank you!

Yup, sure can! Now that Watopia’s Southern Coast expansion is live we need to get update again.

While you’re at it, nudge those folks that do ZwiftGPS, too, please.

Came here to this old thread that has been necro’ed to report that the south coast map is missing; this is Tour of Watopia - Stage 5 - Coast Crusher today:

Wohoo, it looks like the map was uploaded as MiniMap_Watopia_2.png.
