Inserts a dynamic Google Map into wiki pages


This macro lets the user insert a full dynamic Google Map. Because a lot of javascript is used (by Google) a Google Map compatible browser is needed. Newer version of Firefox and MS Internet Explorer are compatible.

For javascript-less static maps use the similar GoogleStaticMapMacro.

Please note that this is an alpha version which still lacks a lot of functionality.

Multiple Google Maps on the same wiki page are actively supported but are more likely to cause trouble.

Installation & Configuration

Just copy the python file in the plugin directory of your trac installation.

A different Google Map API key is needed for every web domain which can be get for free from Google.

To enable the macro put the following into your trac.ini file, which is located in the config directory of your trac installation. You need to restart trac to reread the macro file and the configuration file.

googlemap.* = enabled

api_key = <Your Google API key (long hex number)>
## Optional default settings:
#default_size = 400x400
#default_zoom = 6


The macro knows the following arguments, which can be used in the normal 'key1=value1,key2=value2,...' syntax.

address (or no key)
Sets the center of the map to the given address. Please use semi-colons (';') to separate the street, city and country. The value can be surrounded by quotes, e.g. "Street; City; Country".
Sets the center of the map to the given coordinates. The format is {longitude}:{latitude}.
Sets zoom factor. Allowed values are between 0 (whole world) and 19 (single house). Very high zoom values might not be supported by Google Maps for all parts of the world.
The size in the format {width}x{height} as numbers in pixel, e.g.: 300x300 means 300px width and height.
Sets the initial map type. The following types are supported:
  • normal Normal street-map
  • satellite Satellite picture
  • hybrid Satellite picture with streets as overlay
  • physical Terrain map
types (not implemented yet)
Sets the map types selectable by the user, separated by colons (':'). See the type argument for the available types. If this argument is given but not no initial map type, the first listed type is used initially.


Using geographic coordinates

Please use a colon, not a comma, as separator for the coordinates.


Using an address

Please use semicolons, not commas, as separators in the address.

[[GoogleMap(address="Street; City; County",zoom=10,size=400x400)]]


[[GoogleMap("Street; City; County",zoom=10,size=400x400)]]

Please note that the address is converted into coordinates by user-side javascript every time the wiki page is loaded. If this fails no map will be shown, only an empty gray rectangle.

Server side address conversion including caching is underway.

Using both

Doesn't make this much sense, but is supported anyway. This could be used as failsafe if you aren't sure if the address resolution will be successful.

[[GoogleMap(center=50.0:10.0,address="Street; City; County",zoom=10,size=400x400)]]

The given coordinates will be shown until the address is resolved, which can take a little when the user has a slow internet connection. After (and if) the address is resolved the map will be centered on it.

Select initial Map Type

To show an satellite map:

[[GoogleMap("Street; City; County",zoom=10,size=400x400,type=satellite)]]
