Is there a reason why the Google map is totally zoomed out by default on this one?

I don't really get what you mean. I see a TWHS with 8 locations, so it will be zoomed out to the region these 8 lie in. Maybe you overlooked the light grey dots?

Actually I find the colour of T List locations the "least satisfactory" of the colours chosen for our maps.
Perhaps the result depends on one's display settings, the ambient lighting, one's eyesight and the surrounding "map colour" (light grey on light green as in many of the locations in this case isn't good"!) but the "light grey" in particular is so light that it is often invisible on a small scale map.
Could the darkness of both the main and the satellite T List locations be increased a bit!!

On that map in particular the light grey with white outline really does get lost in the map, due to the topography and white roads.

Perhaps a darker outline to the circles instead of white would help make them clearer, though I'm not sure if that look awkward on the all t-list map.

I've made them a bit darker, though I do not see a big difference yet (maybe the cache has to catch up)

P.S.: looks good already on my phone, anybody else already seeing a difference?

The coodinates for these seemed off because they point into the middle of the countryside. I only know these correct coordinate though:
Santa María del Agua de Landa 21.18381, -99.32149
Santiago de Jalpan 21.21703, -99.47369

More wooden church corrections, this time Wooden Churches of Maramures.

Plopiș is quite wrong, I think it should be:

47.59166, 23.77099

But reading els' review this position would mean a very near miss, so perhaps I am wrong.

These rest are just small corrections

47.5969, 23.76458 Șurdești
47.77408, 23.85531 Desești
47.73155, 23.94413 Budesti
47.46915, 23.92717 Rogoz
47.69889, 24.11341 Poienile Izei
47.67638, 24.23647 Ieud
47.82058, 24.05433 Bârsana
47.59166, 23.77099 Plopiș

According to the UNESCO site the cave is here:
16.27555, -89.25972
Which could be right because that is 7km off the border to Belize.

But I realize the cave is already listed with data under https://www.worldheritagesite.org/tentative/id/5739 :|

Solivagant and I were just looking at the locations of the new WHS Aasivissuit-Nipisat. I had copied the 4 locations that we had when it still was a TWHS.

According to the ICOMOS document however, it is 1 site with 7 key locations. And not the same as the 4 we had (they lie a bit more to the north). As they are so spread apart, I'd propose to include all 7 instead of one.

P.S.: according to Google Maps, Aasivissuit lies to the south of Kangerlussuaq. According to the ICOMOS document it lies to the north!

Nomination file to the rescue! https://www.researchgate.net/publication/315768522_Nomination_of_Aasivissuit_-_Nipisa t_Inuit_Hunting_Ground_between_Ice_and_Sea_for_inclusion_on_the_World_Heritage_List
