Google Maps Plugin for jQuery with Autozoom

Jocelyn's picture

This update adds Autozoom functionality to the Google Maps Plugin for jQuery.

Updated Behaviour
Automatically center and zoom GMap to fit all markers. Autozoom will look to use latitude & longitude for each marker first, otherwise it will get the coordinates using the address field via the Google Maps API geocoder.

Default Behaviour
You can set either the latitude & longitude or address for the map and the default zoom level. If neither the latitude & longitude or address is specified, the map will center on the first marker.

What is gMap?

gMap is a lightweight jQuery plugin that helps you embed Google Maps into your website. With only 2 KB in size it is very flexible and highly customizable.


One property has been added to the gMap() function. For full usage documentation, refer to the gMap documentation.

autozoom: boolean
Default: true
If true, the map will autzoom and center to fit all markers. If "latitude" latitude & longitude or address specified, those will be used instead of the marker list.
  autozoom: true
