Light and easy to use

Hi,

Well done this plugin is the right soft to display a map on contact page. This way no more need to use Google Maps.

No more spy…

Best,

Good support – Looking for even more features

I needed several tries to get my waypoints into the map.
This was due to the settings of my web site. The admins were very patient and helped me to find a solution.
==> Thanks a lot!!
Now I am looking forward to another feature:
An easy way to get references from my pictures (with embedded GPS data in the EXIF metadata of the picture) into the map – and vice versa.
Lightroom offers such a feature – which is really nice working in both directions.
Well – I am looking for a solution based on OSM. Some manual configuration will probably be necessary. But at least automatically reading out the GPS location from the picture and entering it into a marker on the map would already help…

Very good plugin – some limitiations

This is really a great plugin, it allows you to create maps based on Open Street maps and a number of other background maps and even the implementation of WMS services. It does this for free!

I tested a lot of plugins for generating maps and I can truly recommand this one: it is free, it uses OSM, it has a ton of functions, and you don’t need any keys. However, I would not rate the plugin as extremely userfriendly, the documentation is quite confusing, especially if you are new to html, kml etc.

I use it mainly to display my kml files, for that it works perfect!

Gut aber nicht perfekt

Das Plugin arbeitet gut, jedoch ist die Einrichtung und Nutzung am PC etwas dürftig.
Zuerst muss man einen Marker Platzieren und dann die Karte am gewünschten Ort zentrieren. Etwas umständlich.
Es funktioniert auch kein Scrollrad um in die Map zu zoomen. Dauerhaftes Doppelklicken oder die Verwendung der + und – Buttons steht an der Tagesordnung.

Eine etwas intuitivere Bedienung wäre erwünscht, dann wäre es perfekt.
Das Plugin Flexible Map hat dies besser umgesetzt. Zwar Google Maps, aber weitaus einfacher zu bedienen.

Works well

Easy to get a good looking map on your site. I did struggle to get topographic maps but that may be due to my lack of time. Overall, I was very pleased with the maps.
