Hi Jonathan, great package.
is there any plan to add a 'show places near this central location' function.
e.g. admin would add multiple Google PlaceTypes [cafe, resaurant, bar]
markers would be added around the central location to show ' eating out in this area' etc using Places API
hope that makes sense
In my ignorance, I was unaware of this feature. To aid my understanding, I've tried to break it down.
When creating a new Terratype datatype: Would select from a predefined list which PlaceType items the map should be interested in; Cafes, Restaurants, etc. Maybe select the icon used for each PlaceType.
When editing Terratype as a Content Editor: No change
When rendering Terratype maps on Front-End:
Option 1: Any relevant PlaceTypes near any icons would be displayed as extra icons as map is loaded. This could make the map very crowded, suggest using smaller icons to represent PlaceTypes.
Option 2: When the user clicks the icon, it would display all the relevant PlaceTypes nearby.
Option 3: Have a button located on the map to switch on/off relevant PlaceTypes
As a feature, I can see this as entirely possible, and can imagine a sizable few would enjoy it, but for my current road-map for Terratype, its new providers (OpenStreetMap, Bing) that I have next to do. So it wouldn't be happening for months/year, except if a paying customer asked for it, and then like magic it would appear very quickly, otherwise sorry - but I wish to re-iterate, cool that you brought this up, as I love to add features like this, time permitting.
