Map of Open Knowledge Directory members


#1

I’m trying to create a map of users in this growing community directory similar to the one found on our current Labs site. It would be based on information submitted in a user’s public profile. Does anyone know of good, easy way to do this within Discourse?

@danfowler, I like the idea but didn’t find much in https://meta.discourse.org apart from…
https://meta.discourse.org/t/what-is-the-most-awesome-plugin-for-discourse-that-does-not-yet-exist/31/152

and you can use an embed code from google maps that shows a static map

or an interactive one

It’s a start (maybe?)

Would be nice if it wasn’t built on Google but on OpenStreetMap, perhaps Mapbox.com. Open Data!


#4

That’s totally the idea. Do you have any Discourse plugin programming experience?
