Currently, when a user clicks on a map, it opens up in a full sized modal that covers the entire size of the tab/window that the user was viewing. This is disconcerting to the end user to have their page suddenly hijacked when they just wanted to view the map. This type of modal is very large and cannot be re-sized; so if the user wants to see their map AND their article page, they have to right click and open in a new tab/window or use the hot keys as were implemented in T133787.
I propose to either make the action of the map opening as a typical modal that is smaller and the user can still view the article page below it.
Or, to make the opening of the map generate a real pop-up modal that is actually a new window that the user can easily move around to see the page below. If this approach is taken, any other map that is opened will have it's own new window to be viewed in.
