This package is marked as retired

This package was designed to work with Umbraco v4 to v6 only.
Due to other package commitments, we are no longer maintaining this package.

Google Maps DataType

Version 2.0 is a rewrite of the data-type to use the Google Map v3 API, you are no longer required to assign an API key for your domain(s).

This release is for use with Umbraco 4.7+ using .NET 4.0. If you are using an older version of Umbraco, please download version 1.2 (from the archives below).
  • Supports multiple maps in a single Umbraco document type.
  • Maps can also be placed in separate content tabs.
  • Pins can be dragged and dropped for extra accuracy.
  • Location searches return multiple matches and allow you to select by choosing the appropriate pin.
  • A default location can be set per data-type instance.
  • Change the height/width of the map.
  • Clear map location once set.
  • Restrict the search to a specified location.
  • Enable auto-select of the first result.

For information on rendering maps on the front-end of your Umbraco website, please read Darren's blog post.


There have been several reports of the Google Map not appearing within the back-office. We have pin-pointed this to be an issue with the Client Dependency Framework. To workaround this issue, we have added an option to disable its use.

<add key="GoogleMaps:DisableClientDependency" value="true"/>
