🗺 Mapbox Maps - Total revamp of one of the most popular Bubble plugins from Zeroqode

Hi @philledille, thanks for your question.

Yes, indeed. The usage of a custom event usually is advised when you need to use the same action multiple times in different workflows, this way it allows you to reduce the overall length of the workflows.

Have a nice weekend ahead!

@ZeroqodeSupport Thank you guys for the continuous support.

I have a question, is it possible to have an action to check if the drawed Polygon interesct with an other polygon, because we don’t want our users to draw polygons over each other or overlaps. Similar to how the action “Check if marker is in polygon”.

Thanks

Hi @vascolucci, thanks for your suggestion.

We will check how feasible would be to add such a feature in the next plugin updates.
In case there will be any news in this regard, we will let you know :wink:

Have a nice week ahead!

Hello!
Tell me, please, why doesn’t the map load my marker icons in svg format? Does it only display png?
Is there a way to solve this problem? Since the size of the icons I need in png loses a lot in quality of display

Thanks in advance!

Hi @marova.alesya , thanks for your question.

Unfortunately, the Mapbox platform doesn’t support (for SDK and API) uploading markers images in other then svg file format.

Due to that, we can’t do much in this regard.

Please let us know if we can help with any other plugin-related questions.

Hi again,

Thanks for the swift help on the poly matter. Works smooth now!

I also use the Set Directions and wonder if it’s, or could be, possible to set the icons for origin and destination in the same way as when using Add Marker?

I did try to overlay my icons using the Add Marker but that looks ugly and also blinks since I update the route every x seconds.

Best, Peter

Hi, I have an app for finding skateparks, skate shops, and skateboard events. I am about to launch, and I used google maps to build, but I would much rather support Zeroqode. I am hoping you might be able to answer a few questions?

In my app users select a region, and then a map loads with markers for 3 data types: skateparks, skate shops, and events in that region. I have my different data types divided into different groups–each with its own map–on the page so that the user only loads one data type at any time.

If I were to make an estimate for the maximum number of markers in a list I’d say 150, and I’d say the average being called/displayed at any give time is probably about 50.

Here is what l I need from the map:

1. display a list of data, using address field from the data, with clickable markers.
2. give me some degree of control over visual design of the map.
3. create geofences that can trigger events, and also capture total elapsed time within the geofence zone

OK, and my questions are:

If I pay the one-time fee, are there other ongoing fees?
Google charges to use their API, but it seems like I’m paying for a bunch of stuff I don’t actually need. All I need is the ability for the user to interact with the map based on my data, I don’t want any other data in my map, and I don’t want any other data coming out of my user’s device.

Would I need the geofence plugin as well, or does Mapbox handle the geofencing actions I need?
Specifically, I need to be able to define a geofence based on an existing skatepark’s address in my database, output the user’s total elapsed time within the geofence to a data field, or trigger an event in a data field based on user’s total elapsed time.

Thanks so much!

Just bought this! Great plugin. Is it possible to set map bounds on this plugin? Trying to contain how far a user can pan in any direction.

Hi @philledille, you’re welcome :wink:

A solution, in this case, might be to:

  • update the plugin to the last version;
  • use the plugin element settings related to route, and minimize the size of the origin and destination points (to 1 px, for example)
  • add markers to corresponding points (icon anchor in the center), this way it should look better.

We’re afraid that part is related to the Mapbox platform itself (to display marker movement to new coordinates, the map should be refreshed).
Hope the provided advice helps.


Hi @zach8, thanks for your appreciation, it is very valuable for us :hugs:

Yes, the plugin supports such a feature.

You can customize the map appearance in the Mapbox Studio, and use the customized map link on Mapbox map load:

Theoretically, such functionality can be realized on the basis of the plugin features and Bubble workflows.

We would recommend checking the related pricing page, in order to see if your project requirements imply any charges: Directions | API | Mapbox

Plugin available features (added in last plugin update) in combination with the Bubble platform functionality might be enough to implement the required functionality

To see if the Mapbox plugin corresponds to your project requirements, we would recommend starting with the plugin subscription first.
For example, if you subscribe to a plugin for one day you’ll end up being charged for this plugin fee / 31.


Hi @sam15, thanks for your appreciation and plugin purchase.
Unfortunately, the current plugin functionality doesn’t provide such a feature (set map bounds). Sorry about that.
We will check how feasible would be to add it in the following plugin updates, thank you for suggesting it.

Please let us know if there are any other plugin-related questions that we can help with.

Regards,
Zeroqode Support Team

Will use this as a work around for now, thanks.

I’m delighted with the plugin, but I have two doubts, namely:

Is it possible to create regional or city boundaries automatically with GeoJSON?

Can I somehow use google places or just the places on the map?

I checked your site, and the pricing is so unclear. And fwiw, the link you sent me to only covers pricing for one element of the map, and then after clicking around I found other APIs, and some list pricing, but some don’t.

I think it would be really beneficial if you could present more info on the costs for utilizing mapbox. Maybe supply 3 use cases and different monthly usage logs with pricing. As it is, there is 0 transparency for what i can expect to spend if I utilize your service.

And when I opened up the mapbox in Bubble there doesn’t seem to be any way to input anything? Just a bunch of options to display UI elements, and I have to go to a whole other website and make a whole other accounts to manage the map.

Not trying to knock your product, or say it’s bad. But as a consumer who is informed about business, but still learning a lot about web development your product leaves me exposed to potentially-tremendous costs with no way to easily gain insight on what I’m getting myself into.

@zach8 Zeroqode don’t own Mapbox - so you would have to look at Mapbox’s pricing and apply it to your use case.

All this plugin does is basically connect your Mapbox account and the functionality in to your Bubble app

Hi @wellingtonsilvah, thanks for your questions.

Yes, you can do that with help of the “Create line” action (select the “polygon” option and add GeoJSON coordinates of the place, from the database for example):

Theoretically, a combination with the google places plugin might be possible to use, as the google places provides the name of places in custom states, which after that can be used for search in mapbox plugin.


Hi @zach8, thanks for your reply.

Kindly note that the plugin is only providing the connection and interaction with the Mapbox platform (@equibodyapp thank you :slightly_smiling_face:).
The pricing is provided by the Mapbox, and on the pricing page please refer only to the “Directions API” and “Mapbox GL JS” calculations.

For guidance on the plugin setup and examples of the working functionalities, allow us to suggest using the plugin’s:

Sorry if so far you’ve had any inconveniences using our plugin :pray:. We would be glad to help with any question that relates to the plugin’s current functionality and is within our competency.

Hope the provided information helps. In case there will be any other questions that we can help with, please drop a message within this thread :slightly_smiling_face:

Correct. And Zeroqode is selling a plug-in to make use of Mapbox. If I’m a zeroqode customer, I’m a mapbox customer. If I purchase this product, it’s useless until I purchase the other product.

I was hoping there was some sort of static maps feature in there, and I did my best to ask based on what I knew. I got directed to a page with information about routes by Zeroqode.

I offered my perspective as feedback. If your takeaway is “tell him that Zeroqode doesn’t own mapbox” it seems like you’ve misinterpreted my intentions. Just trying to offer feedback to someone who is selling to customers.

I only responded to you like that because it’s apparent you’ve misunderstood how it works :slight_smile:

Think of it like this - you sign up for an account for an internet provider of your choice because you have weighed up the cost vs benefits of the different providers and settled on the one you want that best suits your needs. You don’t have the skills to build a modem yourself so you go about finding a prebuilt modem to suit. There are many different modem brands but you eventually settle on one.

Now, is it the modem maker’s responsibility to give you a price list of all the plans and all the possible costs associated with your internet provider? Or is that yours? Is it the modem maker’s responsibility to inform you of all the functionality of the internet provider’s service? Or is that yours?

The modem maker will help you connect the modem to the internet - but the modem maker is not responsible for any issues or costs associated with the internet provider.

Hope that helps clear things up :slight_smile:

@zach8 @equibodyapp thanks for your feedback, it’s a very helpful discussion and we’ll see what we can improve on our side to improve our clients’ experiences.
Really appreciate :pray:
