The historical atlas of Québec electoral maps contains a lot of data that makes it heavy to download. This data is necessary to ensure the quality of information displayed. You may require several minutes to load the data, especially when you connect for the first time.
The presentation of the maps is optimized for OpenGL-compatible graphics (video) cards. Graphics cards that only support DirectX do not provide the same presentation quality.
