Addon - easyMap for pixelpost (photos on google maps)
it's so much fun for me to work with pixelpost, so here is the next addon from me :-)
I have a geologging device (gps datalogger) to record my "photo-trips". Normally I geotag my photos afterwards, and it's my wish visitors can see this information right out of the box in my pixelpost installation.
I searched some time for something similar, and there are some google-maps integrations out there, but I had something different in my mind. An easy and simple link opening the map after a click!
easyMap provides two Template Tags (for your image_template file):
You can see a demo here: Link to my photoblog
Click on comments&details to see the link.
The link opens a lightbox-style map overlay, with a marker on it, showing the photo-position (from the EXIF).
For Installation instructions and the download visit the pixelpost extend repository.
I wrote down some information in this thread here.
Software you can use to geotag:
feel free to tell me what you think, and if it works.
Well, are there any "geotaggers" at all? :D
Yeah, here is one. Have a look at my page: http://foto.schonhose.nl. If you open up the sidebar there is a link for the gmap view (last item on the info window)and it also uses the lightbox principle.
Also have a look at the map which uses clustering and a nice flickr like plugin to show the thumbnails of the clusters.
Did I mention it can read GPS values from the EXIF and you can tag when you upload an image by placing a marker on googlemaps? No need for a specific PHP version though. I have been working on it for the last four months or so, completely rewriting the old Googlemaps addon.
Read more about it on my blog.
didn't know this one... thanks. Looks more complex, but I did not try it.
Do you use/read Geodata stored inside the EXIF?
Yes I do, for the last year in fact ;)
It is true it is more complex but real easy to setup and it has some nice configurable options as well.
I have been working for the gmap addon since 2006.
hi baerlichkaeit- this sound really interesting but i have no gps tagging advice- i just use flickr to geotag my images there- how can i do this with your addon ?
bzw. ich finde die möglichkeit mit der integration durch lightbox sehr gelungen, nur kann man das auch irgendwie mit den, schon in flickr getaggten Bildern verbinden ?)
oder direkt in dem Fenster taggen?
bzw. ist das bei der VErsion von Dennis gut möglich?
floime, my version allows you to place a marker on the map during upload and even after upload when editing an image.
If you want to add GPS EXIF info afterwards. (if you don't have a GEO tagger and your camera doesn't have one). Then there is a new (free) program available from Microsoft. It works fine. You can set location with a map and then save the Photo with this data.
for those who are interested:
First of all Thnx for the effort. I also looked at the http://foto.schonhose.nl. site. This is very great, but (at the moment :-) a littlebit too much for me.
Just the map is just what i was looking for and I have tried it immediately. When i upload the map to the addons folder the addon section is no longer visible (blank) when i remove it and refresh it works fine again.
(I have removed all extra addons like resize and defensio. Problem stays)
only extra installed addon is MediaRSS
Do you have any ideas?
thank you Dennis, is it possible to have the same "lightbox" effect with your addon (like in the addon from bärlichkeit?)
- i checked your page and i wonder if i can modify it easy the it just shows the area, where the picture was taken( like baerlichkeits addon)
The one on my homepage isn't public. The new version has all those features. I've decided not to make the new (and very much improved) version not available to the public.
The main reason is I've spend so much time on the Googlemaps addon and it has been installed by so many people. Only a few have actually taken the time to thank me in some way.
To answer your question: yes, I can set the zoom of the map in my adminpanel, ranging from 0 (wide) - 15 (detailed).
But let's not forget this thread is not about my addon but about the wonderful addon baerlichkeit has made.
