[Plugin: Google Maps via Store Locator Plus] Distances as the crow flies? (2 posts)

    I have a request, I am very interested in this product however I worry about the way you calculate the distances. You say it is in a straight line as the crow flies.

    What happens if there is a huge lake and the actual travel mileage would be 5x longer. It is for this reason and several others I would want to calculate the actual road distances. As the real google maps does.

    Is there any way we can make this happen?

    Also I would like to know how I could insert custom location groups (so you can have a different icon colour for different groups of locations).

    And custom fields on each location.

    Finally I do not know about the csv files. I have 1000 locations which need to be uploaded. I have a spreadsheet laid out as http://www.batchgeo.com advise with headings and seperate columns. Would this spread-sheet design be usable. Or is there a csv file template I could see?

    Thank you.

    We responded via email. The driving distance would require custom coding, we can do that for a fee. Groups/icons is available with tagging in the Pro Pack add-on. CSV file formats are posted at http://redmine.cbyersprocket.com/
