-Welcome-

When using Google Maps, or any WordPress plugin that utilizes Google’s mapping service, you probably have no difficulty recognizing the difference between Satellite and Roadmap views. The viewer is given the option to switch back and forth between them with a control object which is made visible when the map’s maptypecontrol parameter is set to “true”.

There are other parameters that turn features on or off depending on whether they are set to “true” or “false”. For instance:  addmarkermashupbubble, bubbleautopan, directionhint, draggable, pancontrol, poweredby, scalecontrol, scrollwheelcontrol, showbike, showpanoramio, showtraffic, tiltfourtyfive, zoomcontrol, etc.

You can guess what most of these do, and are encouraged to experiment with different combinations to see what would work best on your web page.

These options are just the tip of the iceberg, however. We’ll touch on them briefly and look at some others the next time WordPress-Saratoga Meetup has a session about Mapping Plugins.
