monet.mapsviewlet 0.6.2

A viewlet for Plone that show up a Google Maps using the document location field
Every Plone content, with a "Location" data can display a Google's Map inside a viewlet. The location data must be a valid address that Google Maps service can understand (like "Piazza Grande, Modena, Italy").

monet.mapsviewlet is placed (by default) below the content.

To finally enable the map you need also to access a new option under the "Action" menu. Use this same option to disable the map.

You need to configure the Google Key in the googlemaps_key property under the monet_properties sheet (added when you'll install the product). If your Plone site can be reached from more than one hostname, add a key for every possible ones.


Also you can handle KML file using again the Google APIs. You must simply add Plone files with KML extensions to the related contents section of a document where the map is enabled.

When you have KML data to show, you can also use a new portlet that will help users to enable/disable single KML data from the map.


You can use and test KML features only with online site. When working locally all KML features simply don't work.
