Hot Maps

Hot Maps Module

The most popular online maps service today is certainly Google Maps. This service covers the entire globe. Almost all places and addresses throughout the world are included in this giant online world map. Modern websites often use free maps from Google to show where the company is located or how to find the company's offices. Travel websites can use maps to show destinations they offer for vacation trips.

Hot Maps module has been created to allow webmasters to include any map from Google Maps inside Joomla website. Once you install the module and publish it in appropriate module positions, you should enter location that should be displayed (in example "Copacabana beach Brazil") and set dimensions (width and height) of the map. That's it. Your map is ready! There's no need to register or copy any code.

In addition, you can include pre-text and post-text (HTML allowed) that will be displayed above and below the map. Also, you can include a link to the full map (hosted on Google). Finally, you can select whether to show a graphical map or satellite image of the location.
