Description (last modified by jri) (diff)

GeoMaps? are needed for different use cases (e.g. Kiezatlas/freifunk).

The Geomaps module provides a custom maptype "Geomap".
A geomap is rendered as e.g. OpenStreetMap? or GoogleMaps?.
Topics with a geo reference, e.g. everything which as an Address, are automatically placed at the respective geo coordinates.
Geomaps can coexist with standard topicmaps. The user switches between them as usual.

Could be realized by means of OpenLayers?.

Plugin framework: move method prepare_topic_for_display() from TopicmapRenderer? interface to Topicmap interface. By returning a value from this hook a plugin can swap the topic to display.
