We’ve already touched on a number of useful modules within a content management solution. Having a content management solution allows administrators to enter textual information within a backend interface making it easy to maintain that information overtime. But, simply re-listing that textual information on the front end of a website does not make a website exciting or engaging. One way to bring your website to be more interactive while also adding to its usability is to use Google map integration.
Google Map Integration with a Content Management Solution
With Google map integration, all of the difficult development is done behind the scenes. For a non-technical website administrator, he is only tasked with having to input a valid street address into the backend.
On the front end, the impact of interactive content such as Google map integration can be a difference maker. Websites can now plot multiple points on a Google map that are filterable by category, location, or tag. A great example of a grand use of a website utilizing a Google map integration can be seen at the Mass Big Data Industry Map webpage.
Further, a Google map integration module can be added on top of a number of different website objects, such as business listings, store locations, points of interest, and events. Turning basic text information into visual information makes it much easier for website users to digest the information.
If your website is primarily text based, add some interactive features to the website like Google map integration, event calendars, video integration, or more. Contact Polar Design’s content management solution experts to help get your website developed the right way.
