We have added google maps to our photo listings!

We are very excited that we have added interactive google maps to our photo listings. These maps are robust, and can show a street, satellite, or hybrid view of the neighborhood that the assisted living facility is in. It also does a “pin” marker to show exactly where the facility is on the street.

This was a fun and slightly challenging project to do. Google mapping is a little “hairy” to figure out. You have to “geo-code” each address to find the latitude and longitude of the facility so it will map properly. Then, you have to figure out all of the different javascript coding that google provides to be able to do the mapping.

However, once it is all said and done, it really adds a nice feature to listings. You can see an example of google mapping in action here.
