Kohana Google Maps Module V1.3

With this module you can easily add a Google Map to your Kohana installation!

The Google Map module has NO dependency to other modules!


  • Display a Google-Map by just echo'ing an instance of the "Gmap" class
  • Setting several map-types (road, satellite, hybrid and terrain)
  • Setting sensor-parameter (for mobile devices)
  • Adding markers to the map (including custom icon and Google Maps popups)
  • Adding polylines to the map
  • Adding polygons to the map
  • Setting the positions and types for the map-controls

Features to come

The following features shall be implemented during development:

  • Cleaning up the Google Map-view (Maybe moving the javascript to a sub-views?)


The usage of this module is as easy as it could be! Simply activate the module in your bootstrap.php

 * Enable modules. Modules are referenced by a relative or absolute path.
	// ...
	'gmap'       => MODPATH.'gmap',       // A simple google-maps module

Then you'll just echo an instance of the gmap class in your action... For example:

public function action_index()
	$this->template->map = Gmap::factory();
} // function

This is a more advanced example with usage of various options...

public function action_index()
	$gmap = Gmap::factory(
				'zoom' => 4,
				'sensor' => FALSE,
		->add_marker('Marker A', 51.15, 6.83)
		->add_marker('Marker B', 51.15, 6.93,
				'content' => '<p>Put HTML here. "Quotes" and \'singlequotes\'</p>',
				'icon' => '/path/to/your.icon'
		->set_gmap_size('100%', 500); // Will output "width: 100%; height: 500px"

	// This will render the Google Map.
	$this->template->map = $gmap;

	// Or...
	$this->template->map = $gmap->render();

	// Or rendering a own Google Map view.
	$this->template->map = $gmap->render('gmap_view_2');
} // function

Yes, it's that easy ;)
