Description

Add a map generated with LeafletJS: an open-source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps. Map tiles are provided by default through OpenStreetMap, or MapQuest (with an app key). Can be set per map with shortcode attributes or through the dashboard settings.

MAPS

Simply create a map with:

[leaflet-map]

Lookup an address with:

[leaflet-map address="chicago"]

Know the latitude and longitude of a location? Use them (and a zoom level) with:

[leaflet-map lat=44.67 lng=-63.61 zoom=5]

Add a marker under your map shortcode, like so:

[leaflet-map]
[leaflet-marker]

Want more? Make more (and fit the map to contain all of them):

[leaflet-map fitbounds]
[leaflet-marker address="tokyo"]
[leaflet-marker address="oslo"]
[leaflet-marker address="cairo"]
[leaflet-marker address="toronto"]

You can even add popups (to any shape) with their names:

[leaflet-map fitbounds]
[leaflet-marker address="tokyo"]Tokyo[/leaflet-marker]
[leaflet-marker address="oslo"]Oslo[/leaflet-marker]
...

Add a link to the popup messages the same way you would add any other link with the WordPress editor.

OTHER SHAPES, GEOJSON, AND KML

Add a line to the map by adding [leaflet-line]. You can specify the postions with a list separated by semi-colon ; or bar | using lat/lng: [leaflet-line latlngs="41, 29; 44, 18"] or addresses: [leaflet-line addresses="Istanbul; Sarajevo"], or x/y coordinates for image maps.

Add a circle to the map by adding [leaflet-circle]. You can specify the position using lat and lng and the radius in meters using radius. You can also customize the style using Leaflet’s Path options. Example: [leaflet-circle message="max distance" lng=5.117909610271454 lat=52.097914814706094 radius=17500 color="#0DC143" fillOpacity=0.1].

Or you can add a geojson shape via a url (make sure you are allowed to access it if it’s not hosted on your own server): [leaflet-geojson src="https://example.com/path/to.geojson"]. Add custom popups with field names; try out the default src file and fields like so (note fitbounds needs to be on leaflet-geojson (for now)):

[leaflet-map]
[leaflet-geojson fitbounds]{name}[/leaflet-geojson]


name is a property on that GeoJSON, and it can be accessed with curly brackets and the property name.

IMAGE MAPS

Alternatively, you could use a plain image for visitors to zoom and pan around with [leaflet-image src="path/to/image/file.jpg"]. See screenshots 3 – 5 for help setting that up.
