rails_admin_map_field is a gem that works with sferik's rails_admin (https://github.com/sferik/rails_admin) to provide an easy to use Google Maps interface for displaying and setting geographic co-ordinates in a model.
Where a latitude and longitude is set on the model, it is indicated by a marker shown on a Google map centered at the marker. The administrator can change the value of these fields by clicking on the desired new location on the map.
rails_admin_map_field expects that the model will have two attributes, one for latitude and one for longitude of the point represented. To enable rails_admin_map_field, add the following to your
gem "rails_admin_map_field", :git => "git://github.com/jasonl/rails_admin_map_field.git"
Then, add in your
RailsAdmin.config do |config| config.model User do edit do field :latitude, :map end end end
Note: The field which is set as a map-type field must be the latitude field, not the longitude. By default, rails_admin_map_field will guess that the longitude field is called "longitude".
For different configurations, rails_admin_map_field can be configured with the following:
longitude_field- the name of the longitude field that forms the the co-ordinate with the latitude field specified. Defaults to "longitude"
google_api_key- if you use a Google Maps API Key, it can be specified here.
default_latitude- the latitude to center the map shown on if the latitude field is blank. Defaults to 51.5, the latitude of London, UK.
default_longitude- the longitude used if the longitude field is blank. Defaults to -0.126, the longitude of London, UK.
A more complicated configuration example:
RailsAdmin.config do |config| config.model Point do edit do field :lat, :map do longitude_field :lon google_api_key "a1b2c3d4e5f6deadbeef" default_latitude -34.0 # Sydney, Australia default_longitude 151.0 end end end end
