This product lets you include Google Maps v3 in a Plone 3 / Plone 4 environment. The Tecnoteca GoogleMap module extends Plone with the capability to display different maps with macro-categories, categories, markers, paths and areas. Thanks to the Plone relations feature it’s possible to define georeference from/to map markers and other Plone objects. You can also extend your custom content types (Archetypes) to add geolocalization attributes and then show your content types on the google map.


  • Plone 3 and Plone 4 compatibility

  • Complete map definition (center,zoom,size,advanced controls,traffic,panoramio,weather,bicycle,street view, etc)

  • Custom categories with custom icons and unlimited markers per category

  • Location widget to define markers’ position

  • Georeference for custom content types (Archetypes), see section below

  • Georeference for plone pages, events, news, images etc

  • Custom paths

  • Custom areas

  • Portlet to show georeference relations

  • Italian, English and French localizations


You have a Plone site and you’d like to add several maps (culture, health, transportation, etc) each one containing several categories (ie museums, theaters, churches etc), and every category containing several markers (ie museum n.1, museum n.2, museum n.3 etc).

Moreover you’d like to link together the content page regarding the “museum n.1” and the marker “museum n.1” you’ve defined in your map, so that a user reading the content page could see where that specific museum is located.

Also, you have your custom content types and you would like to extend them with georeference feature so that you can show them on a google map.

Finally, you’d like to highlight some areas of your city / territory (ie highlight residential area) and highlight some paths (ie highlight streets or tourist routes).

Extend your custom content types (Archetype)

  1. Import:

    from tecnoteca.googlemap.content.ttgooglemapcoordinates import TTGoogleMapCoordinates,TTGoogleMapCoordinatesSchema

  2. Extend schema:
    schemata.ATContentTypeSchema.copy() + atapi.Schema((

    )) + TTGoogleMapCoordinatesSchema.copy()

  3. Extend class:

    class MyContentType(base.ATCTContent, TTGoogleMapCoordinates):

  4. Done! Now your content type has the required georeference fields and you can edit your items to set location

  5. Add to your GoogleMap a new “Google Map Category Content Type” object to show your items on the map
