Hi everyone. I thought I would give you a heads-up about a project that I am working on and some of the extensions to drupal that I will be planning. I would hope to integrate some of this work into the future of the gmaps module if possible. I am currently working on something called the "Greater Victoria Community Atlas". check out development at http://greenmap.lifecyclesproject.ca
Things are still in alpha stage, and are likely to be a bit wonky. (best viewed in firefox at the moment)
It is basically an integration of liquid_wiki, gmaps, location, and a few other modules.. The idea is to create a wikimap system whereby users to add and edit points on the map. Each point on the map is linked to a liquid_wiki page where users can add content and pictures wikistyle. The map is based on layers that users can turn on and off (right hand-side menu). Each layer is actually a catagory pulled from taxomony. Marker Icons on the map are pulled from images in the catagory_image module. When you click on a point, it brings up the relevant page in an inline frame. I would love some comments!
