Yes, as you have all seen - the map module is now in the release tracker. I had a minor issue with the Source PA and Vault label, but that was easily corrected and the package was resubmitted last evening.

A minor note must be made, for all persons who have followed the 'progress' of the map module. Unlike its cousing "GoMap", Dotnetnuke Map will only be DNN 4.x compliant. There were a few issues with the existing layer of DNN for 3.x, and it was apparent that I would have to make the switch. In any case - it's moving through.

For anyone interested - I am currently working on the documentation, but also assembled a Flash Video Walkthrough which shows some of the basic features of the Map module, with the specific task of a real world example: Backfilling data from an existing table structure into the Map Points data, and provisioning the fill to sustain a future relationship with the old data - in much the same way the Search provider sustains the relative records.

I'm really interested if anyone would like to take a gander at the walkthrough and let me know your opinions on both A) its help and B) the Map interface!

The tutorial is fantastic!  Thanks so much for taking the time to put it together.  I was curious if the Map module would meet our needs and didn't want to take an inordinate amount of time to download it, try to get it working, and trial-and-error dork around with it to see how it worked.  By watching your tutorial, I feel I have a good feel for at least some of the features of the module.  I will DEFINITELY be downloading it (once it passes all of the testing) and trying to set it up for our site.

Thanks so much for all your work on this module.  I know the anticipation for this has been building all year.

A really informative walkthrough - I am using MS Virtual Earth Maps but this module looks better.

The release tracker is back on my "every day" list.

Will it be possible to link to specific map co-ords and magnifications from external links or location links stored in the events module ?

Kevin,

Thanks a ton for all of your work on this. Well, as you can see we're all very excited to get something into our hands, even an alpha release. While it's a good looking walk through it's difficult to offer constructive feedback without the module to work with. When can we download something? Could we get the source?

Many thanks,

Matt

The module has been resubmitted as of yesterday - 2nd time's the charm I'm sure.
