Map Options Tab

In the Map Options tab, you can fine tune the appearence and settings of your map.

The Map Options Tab has most of the configuration settings you will be likely configure on your map.

The first set of parameters allow you to toggle on and off display attributes for your map view. These parameters have tool tips to hap clarify what they will do.

The next set of parameters allow you options for setting the type of measurement system you wish to use. This includes Imperial and Metric systems.

New features as of v2.6.x + include:

  • Allowing the front-end selection of unit of measurement. This is useful for international maps where users from different countries may want to interact with the map unique to their location.
  • Select Google Map language. This translates the google map results for any country, street, and city names specific to your choice.
  • Localization to region codes. This can now be selected from a drop-down menu. This avoids conflics with city names and zip codes in different countries. For example, if there is a city with the same name in India as in Brazil, setting this parameter will define your preference.

Distance parameters:

You can add distance parameters for the drop-down in the front-end that users will select for their desired radius search distance. You can add as many distances as you find useful and set a default distance if the user does not make a selection.

Defining Radius Search:

If you wish to include a radius search, allowing the user to search within a distance from their desired location, set radius search to yes. You also have the option of setting the measurement to either imperial or metric as well as long and short distances. You may add or subtract distance amounts to the search box by providing a distance (eg:100) and clicking. To delete a distance click on the Zoo Radius Serach Map Delete Button

Centering your Map:

If you need the map to be centered to a default position, provide the address in the field center map to. You may also provide a custom image for this marker in the field above. If you do not need a marker, simply leave it blank. If required, custom text and html may be inlcuded for the center marker tooltip in the Center marker text field.

Custom Location Markers:

For the user, a custom location marker can be allocated in the User location marker field as can custom text or html in the User location text field. For your categories, it is also possible to add in your own custom icons to be displayed on the map by adding them in the Category Marker Icon field. Simply select the required category from the select list, choose your icon and click on the Yootheme Zoo CKK Radius Search Add Button

To set the default zoom level of your map, enter a number in the Zoom Level field. Numbers closer to zero are further into out whilst numbers closer to 19 are close in. Enter region code allows for user search by zip code.
