Phoca Maps ComponentPlugin

Phoca Maps is a Joomla! component. It is a small component which displays Google Maps on your site. This component doesn't include too much of parameters, the idea of using this component is a fast creation of map on your site.

Just go to Extensions » Maps » New, click on Coordinates button, then click on the place in the map you want to display and save it. Finally create menu link to this map.

If you need to set a marker or more markers, just go to Extensions » Markers » New, select map, click on Coordinates button, then click on the place in the map you want the marker will be set. Add description (you can include images too) and save it. Marker will be displayed in the map.

Use Phoca Maps Plugin for displaying map or more maps in the article.

You are able to select or set your own marker icons.

There are two different versions of Phoca Maps:

- Phoca Maps 1.0.5 - this version uses Google Maps API 2. If you need functions like GoobleBar, Continuous Zoom, Overview Map Control, then download this version.

- Phoca Maps 1.1.0 (2.x for Joomla! 1.6 or 1.7) or any later version - this version uses Google Maps API 3. You need not to create Google Maps API key for your site but some functions are not included (API 3 is still in Google Code Labs - not ready yet). This version is under active development and includes more new features.

This is the best maps plugin I've tried. You can set as many Google Maps as you need and you can easily place as many markers as you want in each map.
Highly recommended, specially with the plugin that allows you to inser the map in any article.

I added KML support myself to draw paths LINK REMOVED. Once this is "part of" I'll say it's excellent.

After a bit of a learning curve this was EXACTLY what I wanted; relatively easy to install, but able to crank out custom Google maps with multiple markers and the ability to generate route data!

It doesn't get much better than this!

Great component. Light and easy to install.
Note for developer : documentation for inserting google API is confusing, you should provide with picture.

Hi, thank you for your review.
Yes, you right with the documentation. This is caused by my freetime absence and my poor English skills.

If somebody is able to write any guide for some Phoca extension, it will be very appreciated.

Thank you, Jan
