Hi, I am trying to export a region of a map using the 'EXPORT' option, but as soon as click the button a broken link appears. I am using Internet explorer 8 as the browser. What can be the issue? I am selecting the region Gifhorn, Germany

I am getting "The load average on the server is too high at the moment. Please wait a few minutes before trying again." as error.

Maybe the server barfed because of overload?

The problem is that I was trying to export a large area. The export fuction worked for a smaller area. But there should be some warning or error message, when the selected area is too large
