While watching the list of Make friendly shops increase on Makezine I wondered if it would be possible to geotag the shop locations on a map somehow.
Using Platial MapKit
, I will show how to make a tabbed map collection for a website, using the maps I put together for Make:
as an example.
You can go ahead and add Places to these maps. They will be going live on Makezine.com
So, try out the maps
, get a feel for the functionality, and then proceed with this instructable to get an overview of what is needed to build something similar for your own site.
The Platial MapKit faq
might also come in handy.
I am not affliated with Platial or Makezine more than being an avid user.
