Plugin / geo2wp

Gerhard Hoogterp



This plugin is a replacement for my old “GPS MAP Widget” plugin with the following options:

  • In the “media” list view there’s a new column which shows the availability of GEO data
  • When GEOdata isn’t found yet, it checks the imagefile for the EXIF geodata and stores it in the metadata
  • The old metadata used by GPS MAP Widget is recognized and translated in the current system.
  • In the POST/PAGES overview a new column is presented with the featured image. Geodata is presented with an overlay icon.
  • The media/post/page edit screen shows the location map in a metabox when a featured images with geodata is available.
  • A widget “geo2wp map” is available.
  • Two shortcodes are available: EXIF_locationmap and EXIF_location. See below for the usage, which is exactly the same (oh well, minus the api key)as under GPS MAP Widget.
  • GeoRSS can be added to the feed (default: yes)
  • The widget is only show when there’s something to show. This also goes for the shortcode, when there’s no data to show, nothing is shown.
  • geo2wp handles the geodata as described in and as such should be compatible with other systems using these metadataa fields.
  • Every item in the medialist now has an option to reload the exif geo info.
  • In the media screen you can also bulk reload exif geo info
  • On the media edit screen the message in the widget, when no map can be shown, is clickable an tries to reload the exif geo info.


  • width: width of the map image in px. default 300px
  • height: height of the mapimage in px. default 200px;
  • zoom: googlemaps zoomlevel. Default 11
  • Errors: Show error messages when no exif is available or when there’s no featured image. Default is false for the shortcode

[EXIF_locationmap width=750 height=300 zoom=11 errors=false]


  • part: ‘latitude’, ‘longitude’ or ‘both’
  • form: ‘dec’ or ‘dms’ (decimal or Degree minute seconds. Decimal is default);

[EXIF_location part=both]
will return 52.22935055,6.8737411

[EXIF_location part=both form=dms]
will return  52°21'13"N , 6°26'7"N
