Tips to share a leaflet map with multiple ROIs

Do you have a Leaflet map? Yes. Can you panned and and zoomed to a particular event or ROI in the map? Yes. Then, how can you share that map zoomed or centered with ROI/events to your webpage or email as a link? One of the answers may be set the zoom level and set view near the ROI.  Alright, what will you do if you have a map with multiple ROI/events? Do you make multiple maps with multiple zoom level and view? You can, but probably not a good idea to do that. 

The solution comes here, leaflet-hash.js, solves your needs, it is a JavaScript library written by Michael Lawrence Evans, which appends the URL hashes to web pages automatically and the hash changes with Leaflet map on drag or zoom. The hash consists of map zoom level and latitude/longitude of the center of map viewport, everything you need to share the map with focused ROI as link in following simple steps:

Snippets on jQuery mobile swipping the contents:

 <div data-role="content" id="content1"></div>

 <div data-role="content" id="content3"></div> 
 //JQ script  
 $("div[data-role='content']").bind('swipeleft', function(e){  
           var next=$(this).next("div[data-role='content']");  
           return false;

How to display the MesoWest weather stations in Leaflet.js?

Snippet to display MesoWest weather stations in Leaflet.
 //Hold markers group  
 var mesoMarkersGroup=new L.LayerGroup();   
 //Get weather information from Mesowest for the state VA  
      function (data)   
      {  //Loop through all the weather stations  
        for(var i=0;i<data.STATION.length;i++)  
                 var stn = data.STATION[i];  
                 var dat = stn.OBSERVATIONS;  
                 var stnInfo =stn.NAME.toUpperCase();  
                 var elev=parseInt(stn.ELEVATION);            
                 stnInfo = "<b>Air Temp:&nbsp;</b>"+Math.round(dat.air_temp[1])+"&deg;F"+ "</br><b>Wind Speed:&nbsp;</b>"+Math.round(dat.wind_speed[1]* 1.150)+"MPH"+"</br>  
                 +<b>Wind Direction:&nbsp;</b>"+getCardinalDirection(Math.round(dat.wind_direction[1]))+"</br><b>Relative Humidity:&nbsp;</b>"+dat.relative_humidity[1]+"%"+"</br>  
                 //Add stations into Leaflet markers group  
                alert("Error! "+ e);  
      alert("Could not access the MesoWest!");  
 //Add markers group to the Map  

Where are my streets Chrome? Google Maps bug on Chrome or vice-versa

I was checking the route for nearest police station from my office around 3 PM MT using the Chrome. The  Google Map's street looks so funny and floppy. All the street lines and highways lines were wiped out. The interstate has some brown points, if you zoom in them the point looks like half circle. Which has the bug Google Maps or Chrome? Click on images for bigger picture !
