Description

Displays an interactive geographical map.

This macro does not supports inline mode.

You will need connectivity back and forth from the wiki to either OpenStreetMap or Google Maps servers for the macro to properly work. This might not be the case for a intranet in a corporate environment for example. 

Content

The content is optional and is used for displaying information in a popup activated on click. With Leaflet, if there is no content a click leads to the OpenStreetMap routing service.

locationTypeNoaddress/latlngaddressSince 1.2.3 Specify the type of location, possible values : address (default) or latlng ( in this case the location should be a geographic coordinate like : 47.156427, 27.576387)
tilesNoOSM tile serverURL scheme of the tile provider. Example: https://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png (default). See also: OpenStreetMap tile servers. The tile provider can be set either from the map macro administration page (see below) or at the macro level.

Administration

Choose the map library (either Leaflet (default) or Google Maps) and the tile server directly from the map macro administration section. To use the Google Maps JavaScript API or the Mapbox tile server, you must register your app project on the Google API Console or on the Mapbox console and get a Google API key or a Mapbox token, which you can add to your app.

Examples

Map with default OpenStreetMap tiles

Code:

{{map location="35 rue Beaubourg, 75003 Paris, France" /}}

Result:

Map using geographic coordinates and percent width

Code:

{{map location="47.156427, 27.576387" locationType="latlng" width="50%" /}}

Result:

Map with information popup

Code:

{{map location="Rue des Thermopyles, 75014 Paris" width="400px" height="300px"}}

Map with Google Maps tiles

In order to use the Google Maps tiles, head to the map macro administration section as explained above, and select "Google Maps" library. In that case, you don't need to fill in any tile server as it is automatically set to the Google Maps one.

If you use the Google Maps library, the events listed below are available.
