Where are you in the world? See where others are.

Show where you are on our map :)! Find other Composr users who might be near you.


To add your position you need to be a logged in member. Then you can either:
  • Grant your web browser permission to know your location from this page
  • Set your location in your profile

How do you drop a marker on the chart? Are there particular permissions you need?  :'(  There is a small checkbox to the top right of the map and on mouse over says 'marker #5' is that important?

Like OneRingRules I have same problem. Seems I have no way of placing pin on the map. Is there anything special you need to do to place a pin ;)?

You should ordinarily be able to set your co-ordinates by editing your profile (you can with the Beta). Seems those fields aren't showing here yet though. Maybe because this map is designed to work by you sharing your location when you get the browser prompt. Not sure on that.

I'm gonna have a look soon, but it's meant to be automatic using browser geolocation. I've got to do some more testing and then edit the first post in the topic.

Ok, it should all be fixed now. First post has been edited to reflect how it works.

Appears to be working. Had to so a lat/long conversion since my browser has geo-location turned off (by me). I gave an approximate location :)

Hi,

There should be - but it's called "Position".

Hi everyone :)

Would there be a way of conning this into using more than 2 decimals for lat/long?

Hey there :).

Out of interest is it roughly a few hundred metres out? I'll look into it anyway.

Yes, a few hundred meters out.
If this thing can become precise it will make a great store locator :)

Yeah :). I think I like that it isn't completely accurate for user location, for privacy reasons. Don't want people showing up at someone's house randomly.

In terms of implementation…
You need the data_mappr non-bundled addon installed. You then need a catalogue with a float field called Latitude and another called Longitude. The addon provides an override for float fields so it has a map input, but only if the field names match that exactly. If you want higher precision you can have decimal_points=6 as the field option for those fields. It defaults to 2, which is what you're seeing here.
You can map out catalogue entries via the main_google_map block. By default this block will also look at the Latitude and Longitude fields.

You have a point with privacy.
Individuals need privacy, professionnals need to be found.
Guess people who don't want to be found can always place the flag on the town hall, or church, or whatever…

6 decimals would be great.
How long would it take a pro to implement this on a site?
