Google Maps for ExpressionEngine
The complete geolocation and mapping toolkit
What you get is scalable and maintainable code that your clients and users will appreciate using. Google Maps for ExpressionEngine can simplify your publishing templates and take the burden off your clients. The amount of time and money you would have to spend to duplicate these features would far outweigh the cost of a single license.
We plan on adding an overlay to undeveloped parts of the property and/or drawing some polygons. What a timesaver you add-on is. We went from a few weeks to a few days.
By the way, this version is nothing short of amazing! It's really awesome!
Google Maps for EE is the most simple and efficient mapping solution for both our clients and developers. It's really shined throughout this entire project.
Since this project relies heavily on JSON, asynchronous, and syncronous connections is important that it is used on a server with PHP 5.2 or later. You must also have the cURL library installed for the use of any method dependent on these libraries. This project has been thoroughly tested across many server environments in many different countries. That said, if you have any issues, feel free to contact us with your specific issues.
