Mapping in Drupal 7 -- Create interesting, attractive location-based maps, configure a map to use different layers/tilesets (even add your own!), use maps to input location-based data, and create maps in Views that show multiple location markers with themeable pop-up dialogues and links to content pages. Toolset: OpenLayers, Views and the Geofield CCK field.
Renee is a CMS Developer and Webmaster at UBC's Department of Computer Science, and co-owner of Panic Stations Media, a tiny multimedia consulting and development shop. She has spent over six years designing and deploying Drupal sites for mid-size departments and businesses, and has spent ten years working as a web developer in the education and non-profit sector. This May she spent a month in Botswana, Africa, deploying a Drupal site on behalf of a support organization for kids with HIV/AIDS; as part of that project, she implemented OpenLayers so that geographical info could be easily added by novice users as new club locations were added.
