Multiple points in google map
Looking at the current google maps, it just shows the single marker, no balloon.
Is this possible or would I need to do this manually?
If you don't find anything useful there, you have to build your own block. This is not difficult, just a second table to the existing block and a little interface to enter the data.
I would think about using pages for these balloons. Save the address in a page attribute and echo the page content in the balloon...
you can create these KML files with Google Earth.
This is how we manage the map at
I'll take a look at the KML files and see how it works out.
make some push pins in that and put em in a group in your bookmarks.
right/ctrl click the bookmark folder and there should be a export option there that spits out a KML file.. couldn't be easier (or cheaper)
We did a nice Google Map for one of our clients. You can select from a drop down and it brings you to that location. You can then enter your address and it prints your directions right within the web page.
Google has some nice stuff!
Next step is to automate all steps btw user input of zipcode to display on the map.
