Driving directions from current location

I want to allow my customers to add locations to their page resulting in a map showing all the locations. Then when a user clicks on a location marker they will be provided with directions to that location from their current location. Ideally, the source for the directions would be a Google map popup or new window.

The modules I have been working with are:

Get Locations
Geofield map

I am using Drupal 7.53, but it would be nice if the solution was compatible with Drupal 8.

Synchonize list of locations currently visible on the screen

Hi there,

I tested different mapping modules, and loved IP Geolocation Views & Maps, but I can use another one if I manage to do everything I need :-).

I'm making a website for a movie production association.
I need to show different projections of the movie, so I made nodes for projection rooms, and node for projections (maybe they'll become entities, but that's not the point here).

I made a map with my projections, grouped by projection rooms, and the list aside. I also partly managed to detect user location, and center the map on it, with a default radius.

Openlayers and Leaflet update

Hi all,

Since the month of September of 2014, I started working on a new version of Openlayers, find the roadmap here and feel free to participate.

Last week, after 10 months of development, I made a summer cleanup of the code again, added the missing bits and finalized the API.
I feel that the module has never been so stable since.

    I am developing a media portal on Drupal and I’m looking for an API where I can graphically select an area on a map that comprises various regions (provinces / states) and the app will return a list of all regions (provinces / states), cities and towns in that specific area.

    See attachment as well.

    Could you please assist.

    Openlayers behaviors? custom layer Switcher with opacity slider

    I'm asking myself for a long time if it is possible to implement a custom layer switcher using custom behaviors with Drupal?
    What I would like to do is a layer ordering with opacity slider.
    There's an example here: http://dev.openlayers.org/sandbox/jvanulden/openlayers/examples/extended...
    For the opacity slider, it would be better to have a JQuery slider.

    Is it possible?
    Does someone can share his experience regarding this?
    Is there a working example somewhere?
    Thank you

    Store locator with proximity


    I need to make store locator with proximity radius search.

    From available solutions have tried:
    Google store locator (https://www.drupal.org/node/2384905)
    Openlayers + geojson + geofield proximity exposed (https://www.drupal.org/node/2384661)

    For now, Google store locator don't uses proximity filter or bbox argument, so this option is out.

    Other option with openlayers, problem is that openlayers + geojson isn't working at all, and geofield exposed filter is returning search results, but location of search is not centered after search is conducted.

    Track (linestring) as point on map

    I have a number of tracks (linstrings) that I would like to display on a map as points.

    The perfect solution would be to have Leaflet and Leaflet MarkerCluster configured so that as the user zooms out the the tracks change to point markers and then cluster as on www.mtbproject.com.
