Google Maps within Confluence 4.0


Just wondering what the best way to go about showing maps within Confluence?....

I would like personalised infomation listed in the bubble when clicked on...

Is there a plug-in that would do this for me? - or do I pull direct from googles code some how??

Would be very interested in your thoughts...

You can use the Widget Connector to embed a Google Map in Confluence:

I would create a user macro to display maps built in Google Maps.

e.g. something like this...

## Macro title: google-map
## Macro has a body: Y 
## Body processing: No macro body
## Output: HTML
## Developed by: David Simpson
## Date created: 2011-10-16
## Installed by: My Name

## This is an embedded Google Maps user macro
## @param url:title=URL|type=string|required=true|desc=The URL of the embedded frame
## @param width:title=Width|type=string|default=800|desc=Width of the map
## @param height:title=Height|type=string|default=600|desc=Height of the map
<iframe width="$paramwidth" height="$paramheight" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="$paramurl"></iframe>

The URL parameter is the URL from the "Paste HTML to embed in website" field in the screenshot linked below:
