While trying to move around on the map by dragging, the map and its navigator panel both turned to a pale solid blue, except for the Google Mapdata @2021, scale bar, and Terms of Use legend at the bottom. Oh, I see that the Navigator window has the "you are here" rectangle, too. Restarting LRC didn't help. Lightroom Classic 10.2, per Help menu.Screenshot 2021-05-21 151925.png

LR is showing you a location over the ocean. Your screenshot doesn't indicate one way or the other whether a photo with GPS coordinates is currently selected, since the filmstrip isn't showing.   "It began working a few hours later." Probably because you then had a photo with GPS coordinates over land selected.

Replying to my post to add: I restarted Windows 10 and I opened Lightroom Classic as the first application. Blue screens like I illustrated at first.

 

Then I opened a new Test catalog. It is empty, but the Map tab looks the same, blue.

I'm not entirely sure what you think should happen with a dynamic Google Map in a static image editor.   From where I sit, they are incompatible.  But in any case, you posted this in "Using the Community" which is for questions about using the forums.  I'm moving this to LR Classic.  Hopefully one of the experts there can help you.

I expect to see the map on which Lightroom shows the geographic locations of the files in the catalog.

It began working a few hours later. I suppose it was a service outage.

You've got it! Thanks. Not exactly, though. A photo was selected that had bogus GPS coordinates I had unintentionally dragged the photo. I've no idea why LR moved it so far: I found the photo that shows blue on the map and zoomed out. It was many miles west of Pt. Arena. 

 

When I realized it had been dragged, I tried multiple UNDOs, but alas, apparently that operation is not undoable.

Four photos in all are misplaced, though the other three are within a few miles. Apparently, you can "fling" photo and it really flies! What a misfeature. Yet, I haven't tripped over it before, and I've been using it since LR 2 in 2008.

 

I will recover the camera's GPS values from backup files.

I hide it when I am not relying on it. 

 

Thanks again.

Glad you got it resolved. I remember being mystified there first time I saw an all-blue map.
