Google Maps Action

hi there,

does anybody know how to add additional markers on a google map? i used the fw-action. it seems, that only one marker can be set in the map. on other pages i’ve seen maps with lots of markers … does the fw-action work with only one? … :frowning:

HI Cyclonist
I haven’t used the Google map thing yet so I have no idea at present…but you may want to repeat this question in the FreewayTalk section as this (ActionDev) tends to be read by far fewer people and then generally by people who are trying to develop actions.
I am sure someone in the Normal part of the forum know the answer
kind regards max

It looks like this is something that could be added to the Google
Maps Marker Action. Right now, the Action complains if you place more
than one instance of itself on the page, but if the author were to
update that Action, it could become possible. I know that it’s
possible within the Google Maps API (Application Programming
Interface – the technical specification for the service) to have as
many markers on the page at once as you like. Search for Pizza on the
regular Google Map to see what I mean.

Thanks for your quick reply, Walter!

This is a clear answer.

Actually and indeed I’d like to integrate a small Google-Map with
serveral markers of local shops. That means the page I’m constructing
right now … has to live w/o that feature as long as the action is
updated.
hm, wondering why the author did not consider this earlier :wink:

Is this possible now? I mean, placing multiple markers in a Google Map within my site… What I’d like to do is something like this:

Thanks for any input… BTW, I’m a total noobie… Bought FW5.5Pro to build a personal website… Instead of paying an expert to do it!! Hey!! I think that it was a mistake!!! LOL

Have a look at http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/staticmaps/

And this is a FW page with their code used http://www.deltadesign.co/examples/googlemarkers.html

and their code is wrapped in an image tag

<img border="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?center=Brooklyn+Bridge,New+York,NY&amp;zoom=14&amp;size=512x512&amp;maptype=roadmap&amp;markers=color:blue%7Clabel:S%7C40.702147,-74.015794&amp;markers=color:green%7Clabel:G%7C40.711614,-74.012318&amp;markers=color:red%7Clabel:C%7C40.718217,-73.998284&amp;sensor=false" alt="Points of Interest in Lower Manhattan">

And pasted inside an Insert>Markup Item and resized on the FW page.

So not doable within the Google Map Action but doable within FW.

Hey!! I think that it was a mistake!!!

Not a mistake if you think how much you will learn and how much more control you will have over the finished site and how easy it will be for you to update. Never mind the money you will save.

There are always willing folk here who will help you out.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for your help. I’ve decided to make a google map and embed it inside a markup item (learned that from you!). Thus I’m able to create several markers in a non-static map.

Thank you,

Marcelo
