CVD has been experimenting with the GoogleMaps module. There are some features that we really like but the angle we are looking at is how to generate maps as blocks so they can be displayed anywhere in the site. We also want to be able to author polygon overlays through the module admin area. We have found you can create polygons through GoogleEarth and save these in a kml file then call this file in the googlemaps templates but we are looking for all functionality to be provided within the module.

Much like the X Basic Graphs module we recently released this will be aimed more towards developers. We will probably call this X Basic Maps and the aim will be to expose developers to the methods used to incorporate Google Maps into your own module creations.

Sounds like a good idea. I can think of a hundred uses for google maps integrated with other modules.

Re: More experimenting - This time with GoogleMaps

now if a GMap could be tied in with mxdirectory so that a whole category could be displayed as a google map... nice
