Is it possible to geolocate wiki pages?

Dear folks, while perusing the many features Composr offers, I can see where Catalogues appears to be able to implement the geo location of items in Catalogue, such as member maps, store locators etc.
Can the same be done for wiki? Can we create a wiki page, and have the page associated with a marker on a map with a link back to the page?
For example, I creat a wiki page titled "Johann Sebastian Bach", I can then geo tag the page with his birthplace , Eisenach Germany. A marker will show up on the map in that town, a general map where all markers are displayed from all wiki pages. So a viewer can search wiki pages by map markers, click on a marker, a link pops up, and you can click on the marker link and be taken to that wiki page.
Thanks for any feedback on this, appreciate it much!

Hi,

It'd require some custom coding. You can add custom fields for the Wiki+ page, but you'd then need to write an equivalent of the Data Mappr addon to pull data from those custom fields, and link through to the associated Wiki+ page.

Probably something we could do on a live chat if you'd like to attend one.


Become a fan of Composr on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter. Follow me on Minds (where I am most active). Support me on Patreon

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks a bunch Chris, for the offer to walk me through code to get my idea up and running, I'd like to take a raincheck for now, only because I need to see all that Composr has and become just a tad more profficient with it before I run you around a tree helping me.
Sorry for the late reply, and thanks again for your time Chris!
