Hi Chris, thanks first of all for these wonderful videos. I've learnt a lot just watching a couple videos. I'm really interested using mapping in drupal. If mapping is also interesting for other members, maybe you could also make a video about mapping, such as open layers modules.

cheers,
Yosia

Hi Yosia,

I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying the videos! Mapping in Drupal is a lot of fun, and I would love to give it some coverage, for sure, this is a great idea.

Mapping has been added to the list, thank you!

Yes, Im looking to adding

Yes, Im looking to adding Google Maps to a Drupal site I want to build. I know there is a GMap module but that is kinda overkill for what I need.

Is there a somewhat current module so I can just add a google map to a content type and display it?

thanks.

Hi there, If you're wanting

Hi there,

If you're wanting to display custom locations on-the-fly on your map, then you probably need something like the GMap module. However, if you only have a few maps, you can just manually add the iframe embed code that Google Maps provides by going to the map and clicking on the link icon in the upper right-hand-corner. You could paste this code into a text field, for example, and display it that way.

I hope that helps!

Cheers,
Chris

Yes I saw the gMap module and that kind seemed like overkill for what I needed and heard that module really can slow down your site. I just want to be able to add a map with a location point or two for a custom content type.

Is that the only way?

Maybe this new book "Mapping with Drupal Navigating Complexities to Create Beautiful and Engaging Maps
By Alan Palazzolo, Thomas Turnbull" http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920021230.do will interest many of you until Chris got time to make videos about Mapping which I hope he will.
