New WordPress mapping plugin for OSM & Co:

FluxBB bbcode test

I am pleased to announce that I finally released v1.0 of my new plugin “Leaflet Maps Marker” - Pin, organize & show your favorite places through OpenStreetMap/WMTS, Google/KML, GeoJSON or Augmented-Reality browsers.
For a demo please visit

The Leaflet Maps Marker WordPress Plugin allows you to

  • pin your favorites places with markers,

  • use integrated address search (Google Places API) for quickly finding your places,

  • choose from up to 700 custom free map icons from Maps Icons Collection,

  • add popup description text or images for each marker,

  • choose individual basemap, size and zoom level for each marker/layer map,

  • organize your markers in layers and

  • show them thanks to the Leaflet library from Cloudmade

  • by adding a shortcode to posts or pages

  • through OSM/OpenStreetMap, MapQuest, OGD Vienna Maps

  • or any custom WMTS-map

to the visitors of your website.

Additional features

  • configure up to 10 WMS servers to display additional information from external geodata providers (like the European Environment Agency) on your maps

  • export your markers as KML file for displaying them in Google Earth or Google Maps

  • export your markers as GeoJSON file for embedding them in external websites or apps

  • export your markers as ARML for displaying them in the augmented-reality browser from Wikitude

  • export your markers as csv-file

  • option to set WordPress roles (administrator, editor, author, contributor) which are allowed to add/edit/delete markers and layers

  • option to add marker directly to posts or pages without saving them to your database

  • audit log for changes on markers & layers (saving first created by/on and last updated by/on info)

  • search within your marker list

  • option to reset plugin settings to defaults

  • option to change the default shortcode ‘[ mapsmarker…]’

  • dynamic preview of maps in backend (no need to reload)

  • WordPress Admin Bar integration to quickly access plugins features (can be disabled)

  • “OGD Vienna selector”: if a place within boundaries of Vienna/Austria is chosen, OGD Vienna basemaps are automatically selected

  • integrated donation links to show your support for this plugin :slight_smile:

Technical details

  • WordPress Multisite compatibility

  • full UTF8-support for cyrillic, chinese or other alphabets on marker/layername and marker popup text

  • support for other languages through .po/.mo-files (please see for details if you want to contribute a new translation)

  • GeoJSON feeds for every marker and layer with JSONP support

  • use of WordPress settings API for storing options

  • TinyMCE editor on backend for editing popuptext

  • version check for minimum WordPress (3.0) and PHP (5.2) requirements

  • use of prepared SQL statements to prevent SQL injections

  • use of WordPress nounces on forms to prevent attacks and input mistakes

  • use of custom function names and enque plugin scripts/css only on plugin pages to prevent conflicts with other plugins

I am looking forward to your feedback!

sounds quite good!

You can add this Information also in the OSM wiki at

Does it allow you to show a GPS track on top of the map? Preferably GPX format.
That’s the sort of thing I often like to do on my blog.

GPX overlays are currently not supported, but I am planning GeoJSON-Support in one of the next versions. I´ll put GPX on the roadmap and see what I can do…
