MapMyObject - The mapping component!

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Well finally with time I am learning a thing or two about creating apps. Yes apps, I always tried to build some apps that can be used by different developers/ clients. Although todays topic "MapMyObject" was never going to be app, it was just an experiment to create a reusable component to integrate Google Maps with and guess what ? the initial results were awesome!. This inspired me a lot to convert this one into a app that can pull Geolocation Data(lat/lang) from any Sobject into a Google maps, where you can visualize them, edit them and even create new records.

Today I am releasing a beta version of this "MapMyObject" which can be installed in a DE org or in a sandbox.

Some of the features

  • Visualize data from any Sobject into a Google Map
  • Edit records from Map
  • Create new records from Map
  • Highly configurable : You can select permission based on Config/Custom Settings, whether a particulat map will allow editing, creation of new record or view existing records.
  • Uses Google Maps API V3
