5.0 out of 5 stars Clear explanations and step by step instructions May 21 2012
By rcThink
Format:Paperback
Mapping with Drupal is the perfect place to start for Drupal users wanting to get into mapping. The book is very up to date with all information and tutorials on Drupal 7. They specify when there are big differences between Drupal 7 and 6. The book is well laid out with the authors smoothly moving back and forth between explaining map terminology, Drupal mapping history, important Drupal mapping concepts and step by step instructions to set up maps in Drupal. They give you 2 different tracks of tutorials, one using the Location and GMap modules, the other with GeoField and OpenLayers. They explain the differences between the two and take you through setting demo maps up with each. The important Pitfall sections keep you aware of issues that can happen before you make decisions with your website.

This book is an important addition to the library of any administrator wanting to add maps to the Drupal website. It will save you many hours of wading through incomplete and vague mapping information online.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best resource currently available to accompany you in mapping with Drupal April 7 2012
By ArchangelGuidz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are many resources available online that can help you create maps with Drupal, but for now, this is about the only resource that puts them together and makes it easy to understand for mere mortals to understand and follow. It explains a lot of key concepts well, and gives a good introduction on how to install and use the mapping modules (GMaps, Openlayers) that can be downloaded for Drupal 7. I guess having a bit more screenshots would help illustrate the steps in this book since it's easy to get lost with Drupal's interface, but paying more careful attention to the more complicated instructions should help get you through. All in all, this proved to be an invaluable desk companion when I was working on our team's online mapping project. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn the basics of mapping with Drupal 7.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best and Only book on Mapping in Drupal Dec 6 2012
By James A. Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book does a great job of covering the details of configuration of mapping in Drupal. From my perspective, it did do a good job of describing the problem domain and challenges of mapping. What I was pleasantly surprised to find is the excellent references to mapping resources such as open source points of interest databases - very useful.

It does not cover the details of every configuration option for the modules covered. I have had some challenges in installing mapping modules and libraries in Drupal and this text did little to help with that either.

1.0 out of 5 stars Outdated Sept. 11 2013
By Corey P. Templeton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This guide is both terribly outdated and poorly written to begin with. It covers both the Geofield and Location modules and may still be of some use for the location module but is offers little to those using the geofield module. Poorly organized.
