Build powerful geolocation applications
The GravityView Maps Layout allows you to build powerful web apps on top of Google Maps. Create business directories, retail store locators, or review-based sites, (like Yelp.com). Allow users to search for listings nearby or type in an address to see listings in the surrounding area.
Lightweight and beautifully designed
Pins on a map can look messy when they’re too close to each other. With marker clusters, your entries will be displayed as a cluster at different zoom levels. Have many entries with the same address? When multiple markers are in the same location, they will be “spiderfied”, or displayed in a web-like pattern around the location.
You choose what type of map to display: Street, Satellite, Hybrid, or Terrain. With dozens more configuration options, you can build exactly the map you need. Customize pin icons, show popup boxes that display additional entry details when clicked, and include Google Maps layers for Traffic, Transit and Bicycles.
