GoogleMap is a robust Google Map Pixelpost addon that puts a great amount of control in your hands. And most importantly: It doesn’t matter if your images have embedded GPS data or not.
The GoogleMap addon is a Pixelpost addon that allows the owner to give GPS locations to their images regardless if they have GPS equipment or not. The addon was created with the casual photographer in mind, who may or may not know much about GPS or even what it stands for!
GoogleMap is based upon the jbgMap (short for Jon Bulavaâ€™s Google Map) written by Jon Bulava. Jon has done an excellent job of providing the basic structure. Since then I made several updates to his code and decided to rename the whole project to GoogleMap starting from version 2.
The administration side allows the owner to navigate a Google Map and manually place a marker where each picture was taken. The GPS data of this marker is stored in the Pixelpost database and processed without any sticky conversions or in-depth knowledge. Once a photo has a location, itâ€™s ready to be shown on the main map that your viewers see.
You can see an example of the users point of view at my photoblog. (Note: the current version on display is the development version!)
THIS VERSION IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH JBGMAP. IT WILL HOWEVER UPDATE EVERYTHING TO REFLECT THE NEW STRUCTURE. YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR TEMPLATE TAGS AND YOU CANâ€™T GO BACK TO THE OLD ADDON!!!! READ THE MANUAL CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING!!!
