Failed to initialize WebGL
WebGL is a graphics technology that is supported and enabled by default on all major browsers. However, there can be issues with certain combinations of video/graphic cards, browsers and Operating Systems. It is a requirement of Azure Maps which eSpatial uses as its core mapping component.
Troubleshooting steps for this error:
- Get latest browser version
- Get latest video card drivers
- Go to:Chrome Settings -> Advanced -> ensure "Use hardware acceleration when available" is enabled.
- Go to:chrome://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist and enable this option, restart PC (restarting Chrome alone may not work with this change)
- (info gathering, as above in General Steps)
- Visit: https://get.webgl.org/ in each browser. Does user see spinning cube?
- Go to: http://mapbox.github.io/mapbox-gl-supported/ Does a map appear?
- If using Chome, enter chrome://gpu in the nav bar, copy content of page and send to support
- Test in another browser
