Location, Location, Location - Mapping with Drupal

This session will survey the basic mapping solutions available for Dupal 7 ranging from the Location module to Open Layers to Leaflet. We will help site builders understand the options available to them and decide which solutions are most appropriate for their situation. We'll show some of the powerful things that can be done with maps using contrib modules and a little patience.

Some of the specific cases that we'll cover:

  • Creating a map that shows your organizations various locations
  • Getting directions to or from a location
  • Filtering content on a map based upon proximity, taxonomy, or other criteria.
  • Displaying and filtering different kinds of information on the same map.
  • Using the Leaflet open-source javascript library
