About
This is a system for geo-locating your currently online users and plotting them on a world Google Map. You can click any of the pins for a link to pull up the user's location in Google Earth.

This is something I originally made almost 5 years ago. Now that I rewrote it for vBulletin 4, I wrapped it up as a product package and released it for the world to use.

Installation
  • Put the usermap.php file in your forum folder.
  • Install the product-digitalpoint_usermap.xml product under AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
Notes
  • Important! - this uses the free GeoIP PHP extension, so you must have it installed on your server in order for it to work.
  • Uses datastore cache so it does not repeat GeoIP queries unnecessarily.
  • Upgraded to Google Maps API v3.
You can see a live version in action here:

curious if there is a way to just have this put users on that have an option in profile to display on users map yes or no. I do not want all the users just some that say yes they do want it displayed. Let me know if this is something that needs payment then i am gladly willing to donate.

FYI: Google Maps to charge for usage

I don't think many of you are hitting the 25k mark a day though.

Web host says he installed the dats files and it still doesn't work.

[root /usr/local/share/GeoIP]# ls
GeoIP.dat
GeoIPCity.dat

Get this error now: Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@hobby-machinist.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Have installed 3 mods for VBulletin 4.17, and this was the only one that didn't work.
Either more detailed instructions are needed for hassle-free installation, more debugging to foster ease of deployment, or this should be withdrawn IMHO. I plan to remove it.

Also, the inability to identify the users due to privacy, etc is a hassle. SMF has a mod for it that does just this, and when I installed it on SMF it worked right away without any problems, and showed the members and where they lived.


I would STILL like to know why this didn't work.

Not sure why it would give an internal server error unless there was maybe something with the geo extension installed wrong on the server. Can you access the Apache log to see *why* it has an internal server error?

I don't have access to that- my webhosting company does. You cab speak to Frank Doud at GC Solutions, G.C. Solutions General Support <support@securegcwebhosting.com>, his web site is http://gcwebhosting.com/index.php.

He assured me it was installed correctly, including the data files. But I get that error. I don't know anything about installing this stuff on the server- I rely on Frank.

Thanks,


Nelson

Did google change something today?

The key pins seem to be 404 on Googles server, so i edited the template to serve them locally but only I show on the map, just the 1 user.

I used to have a lot of pins at any given time.

Also, when i zoom on the map, i get 2 to 3 goes and then the map hangs/freezes.

Any idea what is going on, it was fine a few days back.

Could something have happened with geoip on my server or is the Googles end.

Thanks.
