Vbulletin World Map Plotting System
Show Your Guest/Members From All Over The World !!!


Summary:

The core of this system I developed approximately 3 years ago but was unable to practically distribute it on vborg due to the fact the GEOIP City Database was a very expensive software product; and it is needed to map IP Addresses to Global Lat/Lon Coordinates.

With the recent availability of a "Lite" version of the City Database I have decided to build from the ground up a new hack that utilizes it to display 2 map structures.

1. Plots Your Current Members/Guest Online available on the Whos Online Page.
2. Plots Your Registered Members last known Coordinates on the Member List Page.
3. Coordinates are calculated from IP Addresses stored in your Forums Database.

Features:
  • Automatic & Accurate plotting of your Guest & Members on the WorldMap.
  • WorldMap Page to view Both Maps, added to your navbar.
  • Enable WOL, Member Plotting Independently
  • Control Panel Options
  • Specify Plotting Image Type, Size, Color
  • Specify Opaque, Alpha Transparency
  • Support for Payed Full Version of City Database
  • Updates on Scheduled Task Interval
  • Map is shown small and expands on Mouseover, then contracts back.

Instructions:

1. Download Zip File
2. Read INSTALL.TXT
3. Run the crontask manually the first time, so it will generate your images.
4. Click Install if you like it

Updates:
3/14/2006 - Forgot to uncomment keep-alive code.
3/12/2006 12:54pm -
1. Added a new Realistic World map
2. Configuration Editor partially remade, allows easier selection of Maps.
3/8/2006 11:35pm - Added a worldmap.php Page, for viewing both maps.
3/8/2006 9:52am - Fixed the jpeg output problem.

Note:

The GEOIP Binary Database can be located here:

Well take note that I do provide the option in the control panel to switch the output to a jpg file.

Try that out and see if it works.

yes you do, and it was noted, but there were no jpeg files in the attached download??
as i said, i had to convert the png`s to jpg`s to get them to show.

what i didnt see was the instruction to run the cron job, to generate them...my bad...lol

not having a go mate, was just asking if anyone might be able to help.
was just hoping someone might be able to point me somewhere that explains why most people can see PNG`s, but others cant.....
