Google Maps in EPiServer

Screenshot of Google Maps

The Google Map module for EPiServer, originating from the Research team, has been converted to run inside EPiServer CMS 5. The goal is to show EPiServer developers how Google Maps might be integrated with EPiServer.

Features

The module is basically a package consisting of a new page type for EPiServer. Basically you can create a map and then place points of interest underneath the map page. You can also add you own icons and specify text displayed when clicking the markers/icons. This is a basic implementation, please feel free to expand the module - the Googles Map API gives "unlimited" possibilites.

Download

You can download an EPiServer Manager module package zip-file down.gif here.

Requirements

  • A Google map API key ( You can get one at : http://www.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html ) . This will require that you have a real hostname on your site. For test purpose you can change in your /system32 folder>/drivers/etc/host so that Google will think you are at right site. E.g. I added following line in my host file: www.TestGmap.com 127.0.0.1 and at the signup page I entered the www.testgmap.com as url. And when I develop on my laptop I browse to http://www.testgmap.com instead of http://localhost.
  • EPiServer CMS 5.1.422.4. or higher
  • ASP.NET 2.0
  • Visual Studio 2005 for working with the source code
