GMapFP is a Joomla extension allowing you to easily use Google Maps in your website. This component is natively compatible with Joomla 2.5 and 3,and for French and English.
This component was developed for the website of the Tourist Office of Chateauneuf-sur-Loire. Its initial purpose is to present tourist places and other (accommodation, restaurants, hotel, ...) on a map, and associated this geolocation with elements necessary to promote them as an article.
GMapFP was then made available to the Joomla community. And has greatly evolved to adapt to different needs (a new version almost every week). Which makes now a very complete tool and very powerful.
