Politicians go out visiting people and opening things, so why not illustrate that on a map? Harriet Harman had a visits map on her site that I made using the excellent LumoNet Google Maps plugin for Typo3, but what about if someone is not using Typo3 and wants map integration with WordPress or another system? The solution has been to experiment with phpGoogleStoreLocator and adapt that for political purposes. Google Maps has always been excellent for personal use; now the ability to really adapt it for individual sites is additionally practical.
My first project with phpGoogleStoreLocator is now online – David Lammy’s Tottenham page.
