In the Venn diagram of WordPress and GIS, there is just a small overlap. It seems kind of silly that a CMS that runs over 25% of websites on the internet doesn’t have better GIS support.
What is WherePress?
WherePress is all about putting the Where into WordPress.
We want to discuss and promote all aspects of using GIS in WordPress. It’s a fairly broad umbrella including mapping, searching, integrating with other GIS services, geocoding, quirks of MySQL and anything else where WordPress and GIS intersect.
A rising tide lifts all boats, and the use of GIS in WordPress can only go up. Please consider sharing your knowledge and code to help the community grow.
I’m Interested in WordPress and GIS!
Fantastic! Please get in touch! You can reach me here, or on Twitter as @stuporglue, and I’m nearly always online in The Spatial Community’s slack channel as stuporglue. If there’s interest we could create a Google group, a mailing list, a slack channel or something else.
