Mapping the Nevada Test site

I have previously posted about satellite images about the Nevada Test Site (there are several other related posts in my Booms category). I found the area in Wikimapia and wanted to test linking to their maps:

OK, you will see that the embedded map is not the localized zoom that I expected. Furthermore, if I try to edit this post in Firefox, it hangs. If I switch to IE and leave the post in the 'compose' mode while the map loads, it crashes. If I switch to the 'edit HTML' mode before the map loads, then I can edit the post. This seems sub-optimal. Anyway, you can use this link to see the area. From there you can zoom and explore.
