Session recording

Session time: 
08/29/2008 - 15:00 - 08/29/2008 - 15:45


Using the Location and GMap modules, it is possible to quickly create sites with maps in Drupal. This BOF will address the ins and outs of using the Location and GMap modules to create a mapping mashup. This will be oriented towards end-users and will focus on configuring the modules and creating several maps using Views.


  • Installing GMap and Location--what you're getting and non-obvious details
  • GMap and Location out of the box
  • Generating custom maps
  • Basic theming of map markers and bubbles


People should walk away from this session with an understanding of how to create a simple Drupal-based mapping site.


This BOF will use the Location and GMap modules; participants will not need to be familiar with the modules beforehand.
