Display a Static Map Using Address Field Static Map

When it comes to displaying maps on a website, site builders just want the ability to enter in an address, and then have that address appear as a marker on a map. If the address functionality for your website is not complex, then you should look at the Address Field Static Map module.

The module is basically an extra formatter for the Address Field module. You need to use both modules together; Address Field for storing the address and Address Field Static Map for displaying the address as a map.

In this video, we’ll setup both modules and see how they work. Now it’s important to note that from a data standpoint we’ll be storing the address as a postal address and not in a longitude latitude format. If you need to convert an address to longitude and latitude coordinates, then look at Geofield and Geocoder.
