With this powerful extension you will be able to insert geo coordinates directly into the article parameters. The plugin automatically displays a Google map at the bottom of the article, with the geographical place assigned to the article through the geo coordinates.
The module collects in a single Google map multiple markers associated to the articles, the website visitors can choose the articles to read by clicking them on the map.
Plugin -> Google Maps with one marker in a content
Module -> Google Maps with multiple markers
Supports custom icons for markers, infowindows and all kind of maps (street, satellite, terrain, hybrid).
It doesn't require Maps API knowledge.
ContentMap Plugin and Module have been created by Turismo.eu and have been released freely under Gpl license.

Released version 1.2.2 native for Joomla 2.5

- Automatical grouping of markers
- Article text and image in the marker balloon
- Integrated system to insert the geo coordin
I would have liked the possibility to apply different markers, for example for linking different article categories. Hence "Good" and just not "Excellent".
Also I was asking for the possibility of several improvements and the replay was fast, positive and free of charge. I am impressed!!!! Thank you
I was expecting a button on an editor or something to that resort, but instead the article's "key references" field in preferences is utilized. If you keep a separate tab opened with geo location finder (google) to get coordinates - this is the only "downfall" to productivity I saw at this particular plugin.
The parameter sets are amazing and in-depth. Very clean look and polished interface for an admin.
This plugin works flawlessly. No waste of time!
I Thank You for keeping this plugin free! I will not bother removing that clean link under maps - KUDO's on great work!
Hi rushin2, in ContentMap for Joomla 2.5 there's an integrated system to insert the geo coordinates, so no more separate tab to get geo coordinates ;)
Hi marcods, in the module parameters you can find the parameter "In case of SEF activated". If you have SEF activated in your site and the module is published in a page reachable from a menu item of first or second level, it's necessary to choose 'Submenu item of first level with Sef activated' or 'Submenu item of second level with Sef activated'.
So this goes to the review before by andersgunnare: as I said, I'm beginner, but if I understood your problem in the right way, I think you should try jseblod, to get geotagging from the frontend. there you can build templates for your frontend users with address-field and google-map-field and if the frontend user puts his address in, you have geomapping from the frontend, havn't you?
Thanks for this great extension and opportunity and all the best!
The component is very good if it is ok to do the geotagging backend. Then it works really good. For me is it not so usefull because backend is for administration not for population/creating articles. My publishers have access frontend and it is from this place it is needed to get the paossibility to add geo tag to an article.
So for me it got rating "Very Poor", because I don't need a comp/plugin to create this ...
thanks for your feedback, in a very very next version of the module we will implement this feature :)
