Location Manager User Location Tracking Add-on Description
The User Location Tracking Add-on includes a powerful button that adds your current location to a Google Map managed by CM Location Manager.
The add-on uses the HTML5 Geolocation API, allowing users to share their location from most browsers. If you are a developer, you can create a similar app and hook it to the API.
Logged-in and guest users alike can share their location from multiple sites and all markers can appear on the same map. And there’s no privacy concern – the users must choose to share their location first.
Tooltip With DescriptionThe description added by the user is displayed as a tooltip.
That way, every location marker can have its notes.
