View Full Version : Interactive Maps

My websites: International Brotherhood of Rail Riders Forum (http://ibrr.org/forum) and Project Magellan (http://ibrr.org/ProjectMagellan). The first is written in SMF (Simple Machines Forum) and the latter is written in TikiWiki. We are hobos primarily in North America.

So, what I want is the ability to have a master page which will allow me to search and enter data. For the entering of data I want to be able to type an address and it automatically plots the spot and generates the map. Now, I want to be able to add layers to that marker so to speak. I want to be able to select the marker and then flip thru say some pictures, notes, weblinks, etc. I want to be able to have all these markers appear on the globe (obviously google earth and the need to zoom in and out). Finally, I want to be able to 'call' this up from both within my forum and wiki. I understand each are different so let's concentrate on the cheapest/easiest way first.

I know this is probably pretty simple as I see sites all over doing it like real estate, hotels and google and all, but I don't code and want to be able to simply have some fields appear and I fill in the blank. In Tiki it's entered within Trackers and SMF I have no clue.

I have a lot of examples written down to explain precisely what I want. This gives you (http://docs.google.com/present/view?skipauth=true&id=dggjrx3s_153hdf2s6cm) the best idea.

I prefer someone in the US. Why? That way I can speak with you on the phone. If you are not in the US then be able to speak on the phone to me on your dime.
