Google Map

Use this view to show one or more repeating items in your data as locations in a map with an overlay of roads and streets.

This view supports the default map type for Google with a flat map showing roads. It also supports the satellite map type, a hybrid map type and the Earth map type (this requires a plug-in from Google) Google maps support up to 20 levels of zoom and configurable markers for each location.

There is a known issue with HTTPS links in Google Maps when users are working in Internet Explorer 8. Internet Explorer prompts users, based on their security settings, to confirm whether they wish to see only secure content but fails to show the content if users confirm this option.

See Characteristics and Configure This View for more information on the requirements to use this view.

Configure This View

To configure this view:

  1. Configure the coordinates for items in Configure Data.

    1. If needed, change the path to the items you want to map in Select the Record.

    2. Set the field(s) that provide coordinates for each item:

      Choose Latitude and set both the latitude and the longitude.

      Or choose Point and select the field that contains a full valid location.

  2. If you want to have tooltips with additional information for the mapped item markers, complete the Infobox Template step. For example:



    Build a template for the content that should appear in the marker. Template combine tokens, in the form ${path/to/field/data}, that identify fields from each item to supply data for this item, literal characters and optionally HTML markup. Templates can contain multiple lines, as needed. For example:



    1. If needed, delete the default token.

    2. Enter literal characters wherever you want within the overall template. If you need multiple lines, simply start a new line where needed.

    3. To add data from fields in the item, select the path to the field you want and click .

    4. Add HTML markup as raw tags, such as <b>This will be bold</b>.

    5. Continue adding literal characters, HTML markup and tokens until you are satisfied with the template.

  3. Preview and save the view.
