This presentation will cover using custom post types and metadata to create location markers on a map. Using the Google Maps API, zip codes can be automatically converted to coordinates. Then a GeoJSON object/list of all our locations can be generated for Leaflet.js to map.
Leaflet is an excellent choice for mapping because it’s highly customizable, doesn’t use Flash, and is responsive out of the box. We will provide a generic plugin to generate the custom post type, meta fields, GeoJSON file, and a map shortcode.
