WikiMedia Map Widgets

Published in Neogeography


Andy Armstrong Wiki Map Widgets that make it incredibly easy for Wiki’ers (is that a word?) to embed maps in Wiki pages.

See the simple markup:

        [http://www.nenthead.com/ The Miners Arms]
    

My suggestions:

  1. Use Mapstraction for easy mapping provider switching, including OpenStreetMap support.
  2. Support for GeoRSS layers. Easy way to create a large set of markers from a GeoRSS feed (or KML)
  3. Static image fallback for users without Javascript/slow connections (since Wiki’s are not inherently high-bandwidth users)
