Travel Routes WordPress Plugin

Easily add geographical tags on a map when you write a post, and it will automatically create new countries and localities terms. You can also order those locations randomly or by date to define your routes.

Use the map as a widget, and pick your own colors to customize it.

It is a SVG map that react to users actions (mouse over posts and terms links, click on route line…).

Enjoy folks.

Get latitude and longitude from an address with PHP and Google Maps API

// We define our address
$address = 'Caen, Basse-Normandie';
// We get the JSON results from this request
$geo = file_get_contents(''.urlencode($address).'&sensor=false');
// We convert the JSON to an array
$geo = json_decode($geo, true);
// If everything is cool
if ($geo['status'] = 'OK') {
  // We set our values
  $latitude = $geo['results'][0]['geometry']['location']['lat'];
  $longitude = $geo['results'][0]['geometry']['location']['lng'];
