See it in action!

jbgMap is a robust Google Map addon that puts a great amount of control in your hands. And most importantly:

It doesn't matter if your images have embedded GPS data or not.

jbgMap is short for JB Google Map or Jon Bulava's Google Map (for lack of a better title). It is a Pixelpost addon that allows the owner to give GPS locations to their images regardless if you have GPS equipment or not. The addon was created with the casual photographer in mind, who may or may not know much about GPS or even what it stands for!

The administration side allows the owner to navigate a Google Map and manually place a marker where each picture was taken. The GPS data of this marker is stored in the Pixelpost database and processed without any sticky conversions or in-depth knowledge. A later version will allow the owner to automatically use EXIF GPS tag data to skip this manual step or use it to 'tweak' a picture's position. Once a photo has a location, it's ready to be shown on the main map that your viewers see.

Using it is that simple. The installation is just as easy.
