Maps Inserter for Google Maps�

Maps Inserter for Google Maps™ is a Dreamweaver extension that allows easily inserting and editing Google Maps into your web pages, including the option of adding multiple markers to the map to remark places.

FEATURES

The main features are:

  • Allows to add and edit multiple Google Maps, even on the same webpage;
  • Includes several configuration parameters (see screenshots below);
  • Allows to enable and configure the Google Maps controls for selecting the map type, navigation and scale;
  • Allows to include the traffic and bicycling layers;
  • Uses the most modern Google Maps API.
  • Allows to place multiple markers over the map;
  • Each marker can have an info-window with information (editable) about the place;
  • Several configuration options for the markers (position, title, icons, info-window and events);
  • 100% visual adding and editing from Dreamweaver;

Technical note: This tool uses the Google Maps API version 3, for some websites it may require a Google API Key. If that is the case of your website then you can generate a Google API Key for free at the following Google Maps page: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key

DEMO

This basic demo is a map with two markers. Each marker has a different icon. One of the markers appears with the info-window opened; click the other marker to open its info-window panel:

The above are just three samples, you can create other different configurations with this Google Maps Inserter.

REQUIREMENTS

The only requirement is Dreamweaver MX (6) or later version (MX, MX 2004, DW 8, CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, CC ...).

Note: This Maps Inserter for Google Maps doesn't add new files to your website, making it easier to use and update. A fragment of code is placed into your webpage. If you are using Dreamweaver templates then your template should have an editable region in the <head>...</head> section of the page in order to be able to automatically place the required code there.

INSTALLATION

To install the extension in your Dreamweaver, double-click the downloaded ".MXP" file. This action will load the Adobe Extension Manager and will install the extension.

If the Adobe Extension Manager is not automatically loaded, then start it manually and use the option "File >> Install Extension" to install the downloaded .MXP file.

After this step, restart Dreamweaver and you will find the option "Insert Google Maps" in the Dreamweaver's menu "Commands".

    • Latitude and Longitude: The coordinates used to place the marker. You can use the button "Lat&Lng Coordinates Helper" or use this free tool to know the coordinates of the desired point.
    • Title: The hint shown over the maker with you place the mouse over it.
    • Icon URL: Optional parameter. You can specify here which icon you wish for your marker. Leave this field empty to use the default Google Maps marker. You can access to sets of free marker icons by using the button "Google Maps Marker Icons".
    • Icon Shadow URL: Optional parameter. You can specify here the shadow image for the marker icon. Leave this field empty to use the default shadow if available. You can access to sets of free marker shadows by using the button "Google Maps Marker Icons".
    • Info Window Text: Optionally you can display a floating dialog over the map with information about the place marked. This text can be an HTML, including images and links.
    • Icon clickable: Indicates if the marker can be clicked.
    • Info-window event: Indicates when to show the info window, for example: "Info always open" to specify that the map will be loaded with the info-window being shown (can be closed later with the close [x] button), "Show info on mouse click" to show the info-window when the marker icon is clicked and "Show info on mouseover" to show the info-window when the mouse is moved over the marker icon.

Finally click the "Ok" button to insert/update the maps on your webpage.

Note: In most Dreamweaver configurations some yellow icons or an (apparently) empty layer will appear where the map was inserted. Note that Dreamweaver won't preview the Google Map since Dreamweaver doesn't execute javascripts. To see the Google Map open the page in a browser.

As you can see the process is quite simple. We still recommend watching the video tutorial for a detailed sample. If you need further assistance you can contact our support service. Additionally if you need a custom solution using Google Maps you can also request a quote for a custom coding service.
