Discourse google heat maps v3 api plugin


(Raymond) #1

Hi, I am embedding heat maps into my discourse instance and am planning on using the Google heat maps api v3 to do so. Does anybody know if there is an existing discourse plugin to utilize?

Thanks,

The only Google Maps stuff I know of is basic one boxing for standard address URLs. Complex maps like this, probably not. But probably it could just be embedded in a iframe like the recent Google Docs code?

Yeah that is exactly what I ended up doing and it works fine. I am taking
it a step further however and setting a data set, taking a snapshot,
replacing the data set and repeating until I get enough for ffmpeg to
animate a short ‘weather radar’ style.

Its been quite interesting so far.

Thanks for your comment.
