Geo Mashup

Include Google and OpenStreetMap maps in posts and pages, and map posts, pages, and other objects on global maps. Make WordPress into a GeoCMS.

This plugin lets you save location information with posts, pages, and other WordPress objects. These can then be presented on interactive maps in many ways.

Examples

There's a community sourced list of examples in action.

Key Features

Geo Mashup, like WordPress, has a simple interface for basic features, templates for control of output, and APIs for endless customization options. Some popular features are:

  • Use different map providers: Google Maps v3, OpenStreetMap, Leaflet
  • Global maps can present your posts in many ways They can show just one category, custom taxonomy term, or custom post type, for example Clicking on a post marker shows a customizable summary of the post or page in an info window
  • A Geo Search widget enables searching for content by distance from a search location
  • Marker clustering for Google maps
  • Location can be saved for all post types (including pages) users, and comments
  • Synchronize Geodata with the Geo location mobile client and other plugins
  • Support for both standard WordPress shortcodes and template tags to add maps to your site.
  • Reverse geocoding to fill in address information for locations
  • GeoRSS automatically added to feeds
  • Attach KML files to posts and pages
  • Connect category markers with a colored line

Comparison to Other Mapping Plugins

Geo Mashup was one of the earliest WordPress mapping plugins, first released in 2005. Eventually the author began using it for freelance jobs, which he still does. As such Geo Mashup is more tailored to customization and hacking than ease of use, but many user-requested features have been released over the years. Geo Mashup creates three tables to optimize location searches.

It's just crazy how many mapping plugins have sprung up since then. If all those developers had worked together we'd have just a few much better plugins. I've been guilty of not reaching out to other authors. If you are a developer interested in working together for a better WordPress mapping future, contact me via my site and I'll work with you.

Support

The author monitors WP Questions, and there is a public Google Group. The author doesn't promise free support, but is amenable to questions that contribute something to the community.

Translations

Translators welcome.

Beta Features

There are often two versions of the plugin available, stable and beta. The beta version includes all the stable version features, and also new features that need further testing. See the current Beta Documentation for more.
