Summary0000055: Integrate with online mapping services
DescriptionWould be nice if we could integrate the sites (perhaps contacts) page with
an online mapping services (maps.google, multimap) so you can click a link
on the page and get directed to the map rather than have to paste the
address/postcode into these services
TagsNo tags attached.

The first one can only cope with the first part of a UK post code e.g. M32
rather than the full m320fp hence not accurate enough and the second
doesn't have a large coverage.

This probably wont get implemented any time soon.

See

I live in the middle of a field then http://tinyurl.com/24fhen [^] :-)

If we where to do a google on we'd have to make it so each user signed up
for a seperate API key from Google (so they sign up to googles terms and
conditions, must be a public available website).

When I've looked at these sites in the past all the different mapping
services have returned lat and long rather than a postcode and I couldn't
at the time find an opensource geolocation service (postcode to long and
lat)

I beg to differ.. :)

OK I'll concede OpenStreetMap isn't as complete as google's coverage, but
it is open data that anybody can use.

I agree a plugin would be best.

Whilst in a utopian world using openstreetmap would be best it simply
doesn't have the detail required from a map (like the streets from the
train station)

I agree this would be cool, although it's the kind of thing that might be
best done as a plugin rather than to add bloat.

Personally I would prefer not to link to proprietary systems such as
google maps or multimap but instead use something like OpenStreetMap

Interestingly, the new API doesn't require any keys.

Agree some level of integration whether its just a directed link or a embedded map would be very useful
