Google Map Sharepoint Web Part



Google Map Web Part
The Google Map Web Part allows to display the geographical location of a given address. The address can either be static or contained in a connected Sharepoint List. The map is created using Google's public Map API.

The Web Part can be used with Windows Sharepoint Services V3, MOSS 2007, Sharepoint 2010, Sharepoint 2013, Sharepoint 2016 and Sharepoint Online/Office365. The Web Part supports SSL.

The following parameters can be configured:
  • Connection to a Sharepoint List containing the address or longitude/latitude coordinates
  • Interactive/static mode (static mode needs no Google API key)
  • Map Zoom Level
  • Display of Traffic Information

Google Map Web Part

Stand-alone Web Part (interactive mode)

Connected Google Map Web Part

Connected Web Part (non-interactive mode)


Installation Instructions:

  1. download the Google Map Web Part Installation Instructions (PDF file, see above) 
  2. either install the web part manually or deploy the feature to your server/farm as described in the instructions.

    Manual Installation:
    Please note that you will have to deploy the web part into the GAC if you do not use "Interactive Mode" (see configuration settings below) in combination with Address Geocoding lookup, since in this case the web part calls the Google Geocoding web service to resolve the address. This requires either a "Full" trust setting (not recommended) or GAC deployment.
  3. If you want to connect the Map Web Part to a Sharepoint List, either adapt an existing Sharepoint List or create a new List to store the data to be mapped. Also optionally define a suitable List View for the List if you want to sort or filter the data in a specific way.

    The list should include 
    • either one or more columns to hold the street address to be mapped.
    • or the two columns explicitely named "Latitude" and "Longitude" holding the latitude/longitude coordinates.
      Please make sure to set the List column type for both the "Latitude" and "Longitude" columns to "Number"


    Create a Web Part Connection between the Sharepoint List and the Google Map web part as follows:

    • switch the page to "Edit" mode
    • Choose "Connections" from the List Web Part "edit" menu
    • Choose "Provide Row To"
    • Select the Google Map Web Part in the menu



  4. Configure the following Web Part properties in the Web Part Editor "Miscellaneous" pane section as needed:

    • Address:
      If you want to use the web part stand-alone (eg. without a connection to a Sharepoint List), enter the street address of location to be displayed. The address should be sufficiently detailed to allow a correct lookup via the Google Geocoding service.

      If the web part is connected to a Sharepoint List, please enter the list column names to be used for the dynamic lookup. Separate each column by a comma.



      KML:
      You can alternatively enter the URL of a KML file (containing one or more placemarks).
      The URL can be entered as an absolute URL  (http://yourserver/somesite/yourfile.kml") or as a
      relative URL ("/site/Library/yourfile.kml") if you want to refer to a KML file stored in a local Sharepoint Document Library.
       
    • Longitude/Latitude:  If you use the web part stand-alone, you can alternatively specify the latitude and longitude values instead of the Street Address. In this case, no Google API Key needs to be given (see below). Enter the values with up to six decimal places. The value for a desired location can be looked up via http://maps.google.com 
      You can also interactively look up Latitude/Longitude vales on the  Google Maps Lat/Lon Lookup page.


    • Map width: Enter the desired map width in pixels. A value less or equal to "100" will be interpreted as a percentage.
    • Map height: Enter the desired map height in pixels.
    • Zoom Level:  enter the desired Zoom Level as follows:
       
      • enter a value between 0 (min zoom) and  19 (max zoom)

    • Interactive Map: either display the map as a static image (no user interaction with the map) or as a dynamic Google map (allows interactive panning and  zooming). The interactive mode requires a valid Google API key (see below).
    • Display Traffic Information: add traffic information to the map (if available, Google currently provides this service only for selected cities). Please note that "Interactive Map" needs to be enabled for this option to work.


    • Hide Web Part when using SSL: hides the Google Map Web Part if the user visits the page using https (SSL).
    • Center Map: this option allows to horizontally center (or left-align) the map within the web part area.
    • Show "Directions" Link: displays a link at the bottom of the web part that allows to open Google Maps (preset to get directions to the selected location) in a new browser window.
    • Map Type: specify one of the following map types:
      - Roadmap
      - Satellite
      - Terrain
      - Hybrid
    • Field Template: optionally enter each List column (enclosed in curly braces) that you want to display at the top of the map. You can embed HTML tags as needed to format the text. 

      Example:
      <strong>{Title}</strong><br/>{Description}

    • Google API Key: (only needed for web part versions 1.0 and 1.1) if you select the interactive map mode, you need to specify a valid Google API key (or your Google Maps Premier client ID if present) which can be generated by visiting http://code.google.com/intl/en/apis/maps/signup.html
      You can also specify the Google API key on an application-wide basis by adding the following line to the AppSettings section of your web.config file:

      <appSettings>
         .
         .
        <add value="yourAPIkey" key="AE_GoogleAPIKey" />
      </appSettings>

    • License Key: enter your Product License Key (as supplied after purchase of the "Google Map Web Part" license key).
      Leave this field empty if you are using the free 30 day evaluation version.

Works awesome except in Step 9, I created a list with columns Address, City, and State. If I enter "Address,City,State" for the Address textbox, I get a "Server Error in '/' Application" error saying "Column 'Address' does not belong to table." If I enter just "City,State" then it works fine. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks!
Juerg  
5/12/2009 10:31 
Please remove any blank characters in the "Address" field and also check if you did not make any typo.
We have now updated the web part to automatically trim the values contained in the "Address" field.
TheWire  
5/12/2009 15:22 
Thanks for an awesome webpart! I just had to remove the connection between my webparts and re-create it. Then it the address worked just fine. Thanks again!

How do I make the map and list appear side-by-side as shown in your "Connected Web Part (non-interactive mode)" sample
Juerg  
5/18/2009 12:02 
Just place the 2 web parts on a Sharepoint page that allows to add web parts when in Edit mode.
You find your List web part in the “Lists and Libraries” section in the “Add Web Parts” dialog box.

I've put the .dll file in the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\bin directory and added the code into my web.config. But when I try to add the web part, I still get the error "AE Google Map: A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Page cannot be displayed or imported. The type is not registered as safe." Any suggestion as to what I am missing? Thanks.
ozbroomy  
5/20/2009 10:22 

Thanks Juerg,
I found this suggestion elsewhere, when I ran into an issue adding your webpart dll's into the GAC and other's may find it useful.
I use windows server 2008 and .net 2.0 and couldn't drag and drop files into the GAC (c:\windows\assembly). It said I didn't have permissions. This is what I did to get around it.

  1. Run Command Line as Administrator (right click on link and run as administrator - new in windows server 2008).
  2. Change directory to "c:\program files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\Bin" to run the GacUtil command. Download the .NET 2.0 SDK if you don't have this directory.
  3. Run the Gacutil command 

                    GacUtil -i "path to your webpart dll"

    You should see a message saying it successfully added it to the GAC and you can then add the SafeControl command to your Web.Config file and upload the webpart to your site.

I love your webparts - I can see there is lots of work there and I really appreciate you putting these out there for free.

Juerg  
5/20/2009 11:18 

spva,
You probably either forgot to add the „SafeControl” entry to the Web.Config file (See step 3 in the installation instructions) or you applied it to the wrong Web.Config file.
The correct location of this file on your Sharepoint server is most probably at

              C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80

spva  
5/21/2009 21:33 
Thanks, Juerg. I moved the dll file to and updated the web.config in the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80 directory and it works. The stand-alone and the interactive map work great! Similar to TheWire, I also created a list with Address, City, State, and Zip and connect the two webparts as shown in Step 8 and 9. However, I get the follow errors: Column 'Address' does not belong to table! Column 'City' does not belong to table! Column 'State' does not belong to table! Column 'ZIP' does not belong to table! Any thoughts? Thanks!

When my page loads, nothing is selected on the map list, so no map displays. Is there a way to set a default so the map will show when the page loads?
sharepointUser  
5/28/2009 11:11 
I have a problem with this webPart : " Error accessing the Google Geocoding service:The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found." I think is due to the proxy. Is there a solution for sharepoint users who can use a proxy server for internet ? Thanks for your reply !
Juerg  
6/4/2009 10:51 
can you check the „defaultProxy“ setting in your web.config file ? By default it looks like:

<system.net>
  <defaultProxy>
    <proxy autoDetect="true" />
  </defaultProxy>
</system.net>

You might have to add your specific proxy information as follows:

<system.net>
   <defaultProxy>
     <proxy usesystemdefault=”false” proxyaddress=”http://xxx:yyyy/” bypassonlocal=”true” />
   </defaultProxy>
</system.net>

where “xxx” is your proxy server IP (ISA) and “yyyy” is the port of the proxy.

Great web part, works just great and its so easy. I only have one problem, maybe its a problem of more webparts, dont know yet. When i deploy this to English environment it works. Then I have a language pack installed, and on the site created in the other language pack it just dont show. It gives shows me : Latitude or Longitude is not a valid number! - that gives me right away over the web part and then when i input the adress or connect to right list it shows me: Input string was not in a correct format. On the same site collection i create english based site and then it works nicely, so there is no mistake in GAC or web config... It seems its a server language pack thing... Is that possible to get fixed somehow? Anyway the Clock web part works just fine in my Slovak language pack environment... Thank you for any answer!
Jan Willem  
6/15/2009 15:33 
Great work - I could make the webpart work with addresses without any problem. When I tried to use the longitude/latitude, I had problems to make it work. I created a custom list with Longitude (Number) and Latitude (Number). The webpart worked for the longitude but seems to has problems with the latitude - if I change the latitude to another value then 0 the map doesn't show. I saw a typo in your documentation on the site (latidude - latitude) perhaps there is the same typo in the source code.
Juerg  
6/15/2009 16:25 
Jan,
what are the values you are trying to use for the latitude and longitude ? Also, what’s your Sharepoint Server’s Locale ?
We are aware of a problem with non-English Sharepoint setups, specifically locales which do not use “.” as the decimal point.
Juerg  
6/16/2009 17:35 
Marian and Jan,
we now have taken care of the problem with non-English enivronments. The problem occured for locales having a decimal separator other than "."
Please re-download the ZIP file, extract the DLL and replace the old one. Please then also do an IIS Reset.

Great web part, works just great and its so easy. I only have one problem. I created a list with columns Title, Description, Address and City, same as your example. If I enter "Address,City" for the Address textbox, no any map will be displayed. Any suggestion on this? Is there any standard when I input the data in the specified list? Thank you.
Juerg  
6/18/2009 11:17 
Cat, did you create the Web Part connection between the List and the Map Web Part as described in the instructions above ?
Cat  
6/19/2009 04:47 
Juerg Amrein, yes, I have created the Web Part connection between the List and the Map Web Part.
Cat  
6/19/2009 04:49 
I follow your above example (e.g. New York 2175 Broadway) for testing this webpart, but no map will be displayed.
Juerg  
6/19/2009 10:37 
Cat, did you click on the radio button in the first column of the Sharepoint list to select a specific list entry ?
Cat  
6/19/2009 11:25 
Sure, I clicked.
Marian  
6/22/2009 13:16 
Thank you Juerg, it works great!

6/25/2009 10:21 
Hi Juerg, any sugeestion on my problem? Please suggest
Juerg  
6/25/2009 11:28 
Cat, can you indicate if you checked "Interactive Mode" and/or have entered a Google API key or if you rather use "static" mode (no Google API key). If possible, can you also send us the HTML source code for that page (by selecting "View/Source" in your browser) to have us inspect the generated code ?
Cat  
6/25/2009 11:41 
Juery, Thanks your your prompt reply. For the interactive mode (with Google API key), the world map will be displayed. For the static mode, If I created a list which is contained longtitude and latitudem columns, the specified map can be displayed. But, If I created a list which is contain City and Address columns, no map will be displayed. I have sent the HTML code (called "cat_html.html") to your support email: support@amrein.com. Thank you for your help.

I've connected the Google Map Webpart to the Connections > Get Row from Provider > [data] list Data List Contains Address (text) City (text) When I select a data row via radio button, the map webpart issues the following error : Column 'Address' does not belong to table!
I validated the [column name] 'address' was set in the Address Field (via Modified Webpart) So I'm at a loss to understand why the Map Webpart isn't taking the data list values. Do the column(s) need to be a specific data type other than Text Type? Thanx - J
David  
7/1/2009 02:07 
Hi Juerg, I use Latitude and Longitude. If I choose not use Interactive Map, the position displays in the map. If I choose Interactive Map, the map shows, but the position doesn't display. Any idea? Thanks
Juerg  
7/1/2009 14:55 
Joseph,
we now have added more detailed error reporting to the Map web part plus also now access the list columns by Index rather than by Name.
Can you please re-download the ZIP file, extract and replace the DLL ? If you deployed to the GAC, please also do an IIS reset.
Juerg  
7/1/2009 15:00 
David, what Locale are you using ? Specifically, what is the decimal point character in your Locale ?
David  
7/2/2009 18:29 
Hi Juerg, my locale is United States. I believe the decimal point is just a period as I didn't customized the locale. Thanks for your help.
Juerg  
7/17/2009 11:52 
David,
we have now fixed that bug. The map now properly shows when using interactive mode combined with Latitude/Longitude value.
Please re-download the ZIP file, extract and replace the DLL (also do an IIS Reset if you have deployed the DLL to the GAC).

i operate my MOSS portal on a military network not connected to the internet. But, there is a google map server on the network we are on. in the web part setting is there a way to point to this server? any specific configs or questions I need to bring up to the google map admin guy?
Martin Bakkemose  
7/21/2009 10:35 
Hi Juerg. Thanks for some great parts. i have some questions! Is it possible to have the enties as multiple plots at the same time? ie. 4-5 different lists connected to the webpart, so when you choose one entry, there are displayed more than plot on the map? The list is shown as a sheet, can that be changed into a drop down or into checkboxes? Best Regards Martin
Juerg  
7/28/2009 16:10 
Martin,
do you want to display multiple pins on a single map or rather several maps each showing a specific location ?
Sean Anderson  
8/21/2009 01:26 
I have installed the web part but i cannot figure out how to get the radio button on a list. Also, when I try to make a connection the options are greyed out. Help for a newbie???
Juerg  
8/21/2009 10:23 
Sean, the Sharepoint List web part and the Map web part should be placed on the same page in order to be able to create a connection between the two web parts.
Matt Holmes  
9/23/2009 18:33 
I am using the Google maps webpart, but am finding that it generates every entry as being 500 miles off the coast of Lagos, presumably 0N, 0E. Should I remove the Long and Lat stuff and just use post codes in the UK?
Juerg  
9/24/2009 10:19 
Matt, do you use a connection to a Sharepoint list ? Also what’s the decimal point character in your environment (eg. is it a “,” or a “.”) ? It might also be helpful if you send us the HTML source code of that page. We could then inspect the lat/long parameters passed to the Google interface.
Joshua  
10/2/2009 01:58 
When I change from using the default lat and long to using a list address I get the following error: Error accessing the Google Geocoding service:Request for the permission of type 'System.Net.WebPermission, System, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed. What am I missing here? Also, when I change to any other lat/long I get a map but it is solid grey/blue with a pin in the middle but no other detail. Any ideas what is going on?
Juerg  
10/2/2009 10:03 
Joshua,
if you use addresses instead of lat/lon coordinates, the web part calls the Google Geo Mapper service to have the addresses resolved to lat/lon coordinates. Your Sharepoint settings do not allow you call an external web service. We recommend that you deploy the DLL to the GAC (instead of the BIN).
Joshua  
10/3/2009 02:58 
Juerg - thanks for your help everything is working great! New question - Is it possible to show more then one point on a map at a time? If so, how?
Juerg  
10/5/2009 12:50 
Josua, if you want to show multiple locations on the map you'll need to use our GeoMapper web part.

Hi! I was able to make it work yesterday with a connected list on Address and City. But now when i select a location, the map says "Google Gecoding Error: The given API key is either invalid or does not match the domain for which it was given" but i didnt put any API key and didnt mark the Interactive Map checkbox. Any help?
Juerg  
10/15/2009 10:11 
Allen,
if your Sharepoint List contains the Address and City (vs. Longitude/Latitude), the Google Map Web Part needs to access the Google Geocoding service to resolve the address to Lat/Lon coordinates. This service requires a Google API key (which is actually free)

Hello there, first off good web part saved me a lot of time in doing something like this myself. I have found an error in your program, what happens is I have to have more than one List on a page connected to your map. Well I was not able to do this so I added more than one of your maps to the page, everything was added fine. But when I use if I select an address in list a, it will show up on list a box. But when I go down to list b, it will show up in list a box. if I go back to list a, nothing will show up at all. Also, it does not handle request from with in a folder in the list. If it does it will fix my issue in having more than one list box / map on the page.
Maria

This web part works well! I had a few minor issues at first but I'm using a few ASP.NET controls and a bunch of filtered DFWPs on my page. I also had to append an @ in front of the column names to get it to work. @WorkAddress, @WorkCity etc. I also had to set up a hidden webpart to feed the addresses to the map but once i did that it worked perfectly. I do have a question from a user though. Is it possible to click through to the maps.google.com if a user wants to print out full page directions or download the GPS coords to their mobile?
Juerg  
12/1/2009 17:33 
Maria, you can now click on the map to open a new browser window pointing at the same map on maps.google.com. Please note that this feature is only enabled if the "Interactive Map" feature is turned off. We have updated the installation file so you can re-download the Zip file and replace the DLL.
Adepta  
12/3/2009 08:49 
It works great n WSS 3.0, but I've got a problem - the location on the map is exact, but doesn't visualize any kind of pointer showing the chozen object? Any ideas? I'm using Interactive mode and longitude and latitude.
Juerg  
12/3/2009 11:36 
Adepta,
you’re right, the pin was missing when using the Interactive Mode and Lat/Lon combination. This has now been fixed.
Please re-download the Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL (followed by an “iisreset” if you deployed to c:\windows\assembly)

Hi, fantastic WebPart, and as an existing user of other web parts I'll be more than happy to pay to use it. However, I do have one small problem. When bound to our company list of offices (addresses held in a multi-line text field) the map mostly works great apart from our head office in London. Doing the same string search directly in Google Maps gives the correct result whereas the web part is choosing an incorrect location somewhere else in London (similar street name). Anything that can be done do you think (happy to provide the string/address if you need it)? Not keen on having to also record coordinates for each address, and potentially for other lists not very practical. Thanks in advance...
Juerg  
12/18/2009 14:23 
Nick,
we checked and found that if you
• do not supply the street number (eg. simply submit “Warwick Street”)
• or if you supply another number like eg. “10 Warwick Street”
it works OK. If you give the “30” street number it brings back 30 Warwick Way.
Google seems to have a problem here with its Geocoding service (albeit maps.google.com just displays it fine).

Can the traffic information be displayed on the Google map? Thanks.
Juerg  
12/28/2009 13:55 
Ed,
we now have added the “Display Traffic Information” option the the Google Map Web Part.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL (followed by an “iisreset” command if you deployed the DLL to c:\windows\assembly”)

Good day. Very good web part, I think many people will benefit. My server is using Russian locale, as the decimal point is ','. Options longitude / latitude are operate normally and the default map shows the necessary part. But when choosing an item from the list I get the following error: Column 'Address' does not belong to list! Available columns: Attachments LinkTitle _x0413__x043e__x0440__x043e__x04 _x0410__x0434__x0440__x0435__x04 Column 'City' does not belong to list! Available columns: Attachments LinkTitle _x0413__x043e__x0440__x043e__x04 _x0410__x0434__x0440__x0435__x04 Any thoughts on this? Thank you for any answer!

Gunther, would you want to select a List item in the connected and then have the Web part show the corresponding bubble ?
Gunther  
4/16/2010 05:43 
It would be great to connect the map web part to another web part on a page, and have the map web part display each list item in the connected web part as the pin. In addition when you select a item in the list of the connected web part then have the corresponding map pin show the bubble information. It would be nice to be able to hover over the pins and have the bubble pop-up as well. Here is an example of what I am wanting to do- I have a web part page that displays the basic company information. It has a webpart displaying a filtered list from a "company sites" list that shows the sites for the company. I want to show these sites on the map, and have the behaviour described above.
Juerg  
4/16/2010 18:24 
Gunther, we think it's a good idea to add this feature to the Geo Mapper web part (which seems more suitable since it already is displaying all the items containend in the selected Sharepoint List).
Gunther  
4/17/2010 01:56 
That would be great. I will keep an eye out for the update. Thanks

good work, but my map does not appear centered ( the red pin in the middle ). I must adjust manually to see the pin. I also cannot see the "interactive check". I have evaluation web part. thanks
Juerg  
5/26/2010 10:12 
Luis, it looks like you are using a very old version of the web part since we've added the "Interactive Map" option about a year ago.
Dan  
6/21/2010 21:06 
It worked the first time I entered data from a row, but now it's just showing a blue square. Is there a way to debug the data being passed from the list to the Web Part? Thanks!
Dan  
6/21/2010 21:43 
Never mind - I got it to work again.

I just downloaded the trial and installed it on our dev machine. I have it setup for Seattle, WA using Lat and Long but I cannot get the traffic overlay to work. Google maps has traffic information for Seattle too. Is this feature disabled on the trial?
Steve  
7/17/2010 00:48 
I just got the traffic overlay to work. It appeared that the interactive maps option needs to be checked.
Radhika  
8/7/2010 12:30 
Can it be used for any country other than US?
Radhika  
8/7/2010 12:50 
Ok, its working for me. But it would be nice if it had the bubble display as someone else mentioned.
Juerg  
8/9/2010 10:53 
Radhika, we will add the bubble feature in the next release.
Dan

The webpart does not render traffic for Paris, France. I tried other cities (Chicago, London) and it worked fine. Any ideas what the problem might be. I checked on Goolge maps and they do provide traffic coverage for Paris, France. I would appreciate a prompt response, Thank you!
Juerg  
8/13/2010 10:36 
Dan,
unfortunately the traffic information for France is not available when accessed via the Google Maps API (enforced by the French map data provider albeit the traffic data is actually available when accessed via maps.google.com).
An alternative solution is to use our Google Earth Web Part in combination with a real-time KML traffic overlay provided by www.v-trafic.com

On the bubble window I want to display a link that points to a document in my document library. The link opens documents when I click it on the list, but it does not work on the bubble window. Any help is appreciated on this. Thanks
Juerg  
9/2/2010 11:31 
Amaha, are you actually referring to the Google Geo Mapper web part (see /apps/page.asp?Q=5775 ) ?
Ameha  
9/2/2010 15:51 
Yes, I am using the Google Geo Mapper web part.
SP2010

How can I actually center the web part? It seems like the map is always aligned to the left? I tried to put it within <div style="text-align: center;"> </div> but still no joy. Any ideas?
Juerg  
9/24/2010 16:02 
SP2010,
we have now added the new "Center Map" option to allow the map to be horizontally centered within the web part area.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL (followed by an iisreset command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly)
SP2010  
9/27/2010 10:26 
Juerg, thanks for the update. I do see the center option, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work when checked. Looking at the html, it seems like the left position is forcing this:
<div style="position: absolute; width: 100%; height: 100%; overflow: hidden; top: 0px; left: 0px;">
Any thoughts?
Juerg  
9/30/2010 17:48 
SP2010, the "Center" option indeed did not work for SP2010. We have now fixed this and have updated the Zip file accordingly.

Hi Jureg, I am getting the error below after connecting the webpart with List -- Google Gecoding Error: No corresponding geographic location could be found for the specified address, possibly because the address is relatively new, or because it may be incorrect Please let me where can I get the gecoding api? Thanks in advance
Juerg  
10/6/2010 17:34 
Active,
did you put the proper List field names into the web part's "Address" field (as described in the configuration instructions above) ?
Also, does your List item contain a valid address than can be resolved by Google Maps (it might contain a typo) ?
Active  
10/7/2010 11:34 
Thanks for the reply Juerg -- Yes, "Address" field is added to the List and the address resolves by Google map, still I am getting the same error.
Juerg  
10/7/2010 13:48 
Active, can you give an example of an address that does not work ? Can you also indicate how you entered the List field(s) into the web part's "Address" field ?
Active  
10/8/2010 12:52 
Hi Juerg, The webpart address field
- Title,Address

The List entries is
-- Title Address Pizza Hut 25 High Street, Whitton, London TW2 7LB

Please advice
Juerg  
10/8/2010 16:11 
SP2010, see the example below (please note that for illustration purposes I added a column which consists of 2 words to the connection to show how to enter such a field by using _x0020_ as the blank character):

I just purchase couple of webparts one been the google map web part, I've configured this to work with my sharepoint lists, and I get the following message: Google Gecoding Error: No corresponding geographic location could be found for the specified address, possibly because the address is relatively new, or because it may be incorrect. The address works fine in googlemap using postcode or latitude and longitude. My platform is SharePoint 2007 enterprise edition,. Need this resolve soon as possible as the site goes live Thursday.
Juerg  
11/1/2011 18:49 
Randine, do you use the web part stand-alone, ie. did you enter a street address into the web part’s “Address” setting ? If yes, what exactly did you enter

Hello, I have the webpart. Is there a way i can use it to display on a SSL page?

how i get google API key ? i enter ti the url http://code.google.com/intl/en/apis/maps/signup.html
and i dont'n know get it.
Juerg  
3/9/2012 19:00 
Heriberto,
can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
If it’s V1.1.10 or lower, then please re-download the updated Zip file from our web site at /apps/page.asp?Q=5754, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.

We recently released the new version 1.2 of the web part which now does not require the Google API key anymore.
Mario  
4/2/2012 17:41 
Hello Juerg,

Someone else asked for the SSL support.
Any news on this?

Kind regards,
Mario
Juerg  
4/2/2012 18:17 
Mario and Maver,
we actually added SSL support with version 1.2.0 (you can check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top).

I've been trying to make the Google Map and Mapper Webparts work in our Office 365 environment but I cannot establish a connection - the List Webpart claims that the Google Map Webparts can't receive the data. We've done the Solution install but had to follow the O365 'Upload Solution' path to do that as we can't run lower level code. Any ideas what we have missed?
Juerg  
6/27/2012 12:06 
Martin,
Office365/Sharepoint Online unfortunately disables web part connections due to the technical design of the Sharepoint "sandbox".
We hope that Microsoft will lift off this restriction in the next version of Sharepoint Online.

Hello, was wondering if you planned on allowing percentages to modify width and height of the map webpart alongside the current pixel option. Thanks!
Juerg  
6/17/2013 12:05 
SPInquiry,
the Google Map web part now interprets a "Map Width" value equal to or less than "100" as a precentage.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

I'm using this webpart 1.2.9 on a https sp2010, but I receive a warning about mixed http and https content when I activate this WP, despite the fact I read since 1.2.0 SSL is supported.

Any ideas to fix this?
In page source I see a url :<script src='http://maps-api-ssl.google.com/maps/api/js?v=3&sensor=false' ...
Juerg  
3/29/2014 14:38 
Sander,
for some reason the web part cannot sense that your site is using SSL
Anyway, you can force the web part to use the HTTPS: protocol as follows:

You will need to add the below line to the “appSettings” section of your Sharpeoint application’s web.config file (typically located at c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80)

<appSettings>
   .
   .
   <add key="AESSL" value="1" />
</appSettings>

I have 2 questions regarding your very handsome plugin before buying it.

1st : Is there a way to select multiple addresses from the list and have all of the selected coordinates appear at the same time on the map? I will have a huge list and quick lookup on our different offices would be great

2nd : Is there a way to add a URL dynamic link into the plugin? Like you have the red dot pinpoint, I want to be able to click that red dot and redirect it to a PDF. Thanks in advance!
Juerg  
5/1/2014 16:18 
Samuel,
the Google Map web part only shows a single location pin at a time.
You thus might check out the Geo Mapper web part (see /apps/page.asp?Q=5775 ) which is able to show multiple locations.
It also allows to display information about the location in an info bubble (shown when either clicking on a pin or hovering over the pin) and also place an URL in the info bubble.
Andrew  
6/14/2014 19:15 
Is there a way to load the address information via query string or SQL query web part? We have all our address information stored in SQL server.
Juerg  
6/16/2014 11:53 
Andrew,
the Google Map web part also either accepts the address information to be passed in via one or more URL parameters or via a web part connection. You also can configure the SQL Query Viewer web part to send the selected address to a Google Map web part placed on the same page or directly open the map as a popup window.
Andrew  
6/16/2014 16:46 
Juerg,
Thanks for your response. Where can I find out information on the URL parameters?
Juerg  
6/16/2014 17:06 
Andrew,
you can enter the URL parameter names into the web part’s “Address” setting, enclosed in curly braces.

Example:
{Street Address}, {City}, {Country}

Another great Webpart Juerg.

I am using SP 2013 so my list view by default has the "Find an Item" at the top of the list - which is used. If an item is searched, it filters and if the line is highlighted (the item is ticked), the map doesn't change. If I click on the double-ended arrow next to the item, the map changes but then the list resets itself back to show all of the items, not just the search result. How can I get around that?
Juerg  
10/16/2014 19:07 
Kelly,
there is unfortunately no fix to correct this behavior which is inherent to Sharpeoint 2013 (eg. selecting an item via a web part connection resets the search filter).
nooshin   
7/14/2015 13:23 
I have used the web part in automatically way as you have been indicated. But when I added it to the SharePoint site, Beyond of its title, wrote "currently Disabled". I have mention that I am using SharePoint 2010. What could be the problem?

Juerg  
7/14/2015 15:15 
nooshin,
please check the "GeoCoder" web part’s „Geocoding enabled“ checkbox to activate the geocoding.
Giuseppe Di Giulio  
6/24/2016 17:29 
In Office 365 the webpart because I cannot specify a Google API key, the field
is missing in the webpart configuration section.
Juerg  
6/30/2016 21:41 
Giuseppe,
you do not need to pass the Google “Premier” key with every map request (Google removed this restriction about 2 years ago).

The web part is not displaying in interactive mode when I embed scripting to eliminate jquery flicker as the page loads.

The embedded script is

<script>
document.write('<style type="text/css">body{display:none}</style>');
jQuery(function($) {
$('body').css('display','block');
});
</script>

as specified at the following link http://monc.se/kitchen/152/avoiding-flickering-in-jquery

Is there more appropriate scripting to use?

Thanks.
Juerg  
8/12/2016 18:58 
James,
please note that the Google Map „interactive“ mode uses JavaScript provided by Google which seems to interfere with your jQuery script.

It might be worthwile to try the below variant:

<script>
document.write('<style type="text/css">body{visiblity:hidden}</style>');
jQuery(function($) {
  $('body').css('visibility','visible');
});
</script>
