API for geographical maps, to be used in other modules. Provides a simple PHP interface to add maps, markers, different tile sets, and enable users to add a marker (including reverse geocoding).
This is being built against Moodle 2.6+, but should work for at least 2.5.
- Map-enabled version of the Database activity latlong field (in plugin "latlongmap" - example at http://dbtest.conted.ox.ac.uk/moodlemaps/course/view.php?id=2)
- Test/demo page (example at http://dbtest.conted.ox.ac.uk/moodlemaps/local/map/)
- Quick conversion of iplookup (example at http://dbtest.conted.ox.ac.uk/moodlemaps/local/map/iplookup.php)
Only alpha-level, as it has bugs, and needs to be better integrated with Moodle's existing location features.
If you're familiar with Git and can set up a test Moodle, the easiest way to try is to clone it from GitHub: https://github.com/Dave-B/moodle/tree/master-maps
This is a plugin version to help people unfamiliar with Git to try it; I'd like to get it included in core (MDL-42522).
