Google Map w/ Custom Markers by Rapid Dev!

Hi Bubblers, January ends up with good news! :star2:

Developing our plugin portfolio, we could not ignore the Google Maps direction.

Thus, we published a plugin that extends the functionality of the default Google Maps plugin and adds these features:

  • Custom markers: You can customize the appearance of each marker by using your own images, icons, or SVGs. You can also use dynamic data fields to change the marker icons based on your app logic.

  • Routes: You can draw routes on your map between two or more locations, using different modes of transportation, such as driving, walking, bicycling, or transit. You can also show the distance and duration of each route segment.

  • Clusters: You can group nearby markers into clusters to improve the performance and readability of your map. You can also customize the cluster icons, labels, and colors.

With this plugin, you can create powerful and beautiful maps for your app, such as:

  • Location-based services, such as social networks, marketplaces, or delivery apps

  • Travel and tourism apps, such as hotel booking, car rental, or flight tracking.

  • Data visualization and analysis apps, such as heat maps, choropleth maps, or geospatial charts.

Have suggestions on how we can improve it more, drop us a message here :wink:

Have a great day!

Nice work on this - I’ve been trying it out for the morning. I’ve got a few quirks for my use case I was wondering if you might be able to cater for:

  • The Draw a Route action triggers a zoom animation every time one is created. Can I get a check box to turn this off?
  • My use case is location based not residence based, is there a way to use coordinates instead of an address? I assume this is not as easy as the above point.
  • Custom markers for the start and end of routes (A/B) would be useful

Also - how does the iterator action work? More comprehensive docs in general would be great.

Thanks

Hi @tmxl, thanks for reaching out and our plugin use.

We’ve passed your questions to the developer team. Once any feedback becomes available, we will let you know asap.

Thank you for understanding :pray:

Great - looking forward to an update soon. Thanks :slight_smile:

EDIT: My first point about drawing multiple routes at once, or drawing multiple without animation is the most important for me.
