Want your users to place their own maps on your site? Do you want them to have the ability to just fill out a form, and it just shows up. Well they can now.

With the GoogleMaps macro, any content editor in umbraco can place a dynamic map directly into the page that they are editing. All they need to do is specify the address, and a couple other data fields, and a dynamic map shows up on the page. It is that simple.

Known issues:
- Multiple maps on a single page fails.
- Javascript error with pan control enabled. Everything still works though.
- API Key is domain specific.
- Flow breaks in Firefox unless you use css manipulation. May try embedding an additional div.

* Corrects the closing of the Script tag in Umbraco v.3.x

Download the GoogleMaps Package.

You will need to obtain a Google Maps API Key and edit the XSLT, replacing the text labeled as API_KEY_HERE.

If you are planning on implementing this on multiple websites, you will need to implement the API_Key as a parameter, and pass it in per website. The Yahoo!Maps control does not have this limitation.
