We’re happy to announce that GatheringPoint partners now have the ability to easily create their own custom content layers and edit them on the fly. They setup a Google Docs Spreadsheet with columns such as latitude, longitude, title, popup window content, and map pin selection. Non-technical people can edit the spreadsheet and see changes on the map on their website or mobile app.
As always, partners embed a GPoint powered map widget by adding an iframe. They set map location and zoom level, as well as which of the dozens of available content layers that will be displayed by default when the map loads. Some partners also use a geo enabled rss feed for custom layers generated from the content of their site.
