Leaflet Maps Marker (Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, Bing Maps)
Create Map Markers Automation (9 posts)

    Hello,

    I am importing a number of locations using an XML file.

    The information is presented like this:

    <Location>
    <Latitude>
    ​49.​572​
    </Latitude>
    <Longitude>
    -​123.​225​
    </Longitude>
    </Location>

    Is there a way to create map markers automatically for each location?

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    thanks
    Andy

    Not the best way to do it but I have imported a tonne of locations using a CSV upload to the database via phpmyadmin.

    If you have phpmyadmin export your database to csv and then copy paste your information to match.

    Pretty easy to figure out.....

    Hi, I'm evaluating the pro version and am wondering if there is any update on this and/or a schedule for implementation? I love this plugin but the thought of manually entering so much data is a bit daunting.

    It would be especially useful if markers could automatically be created for posts that have a featured image with GPS coordinates.

    I'd like to use an import function also, though, for things like importing foursquare checkins, etc.

    I love, love, love that your plugin works with OSM and especially the Stamen Watercolor tiles...thanks for all of your hard work.

    Hi dirkse,

    I am currently working on the csv/xls/xlsx import/export feature right now - main advantage will be that you can edit your markers in a spreadsheet and import (or mass edit) all markers at once.

    Importing foursquare checkins through csv import might not work though - this would require an interface for converting the foursquare output into a geojson array which could be read by my plugin. I have this feature on my roadmap, but with a lower priority, so please be patient.
    best,

    Robert

    Perfect, thanks so much & thanks for the quick response. I'm especially glad to hear that foursquare is on the roadmap, at whatever priority.

    Best,

    @bajserek1: Leaflet.geoCSV wont work out of the box with my plugin - anyway: pro v1.4 with support for csv/xls/xlsx/ods import will be released next weekend...
