We had some discussion about what features make CMS a GeoCMS with GeoPress and Drupal geo developers in State of the Map, and a list should be published soon. Based on our discussions I decided that Midgard should also make it easy to actually display positioned data on maps.
During train ride from Manchester to Birmingham I made a quick PHP wrapper to make map display even easier.
Now to display an object on a map site builder only needs to do:
<?php $map = new org_routamc_positioning_map('my_example_map'); $map->add_object($article); $map->show(); ?>
Multiple objects and arbitrary map points can also be shown:
// Add some positioned objects $map->add_object($article); $map->add_object($another_article); // Add arbitrary marker $marker = array ( 'coordinates' => array ( 'latitude' => 52.4827, 'longitude' => -1.89739, ), 'title' => 'Bergie', ); $map->add_marker($marker);
Grab it from SVN while it is hot!
