Does ocDatamap take its information from the member's information or is there supposed to be lat and long entries on the catalog entry?

I played with this ages ago so don't remember exactly, but I'm fairly sure it would have to be lat long on the catalogue entry, otherwise it makes no sense and would essentially be the same as ocUsermap.

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

That what I thought but there are no long/lat fields on the catalog entries.

ocPortal would have to wither default the catalog entry to the current location based on IP or else use the member's location. Or they would need to specifically ask people to enter a location (most likely by providing a location and turning it into long/lat.

Since this is a third-party add-on, i'm not sure we will get a clear answer.

Just had a look in an old test environment where I had it installed.

Looks like you have to create your own lat/long field in whichever catalogue you want. Then when you insert the block you will be prompted to nominate the catalogue you want to use as well as the lat/long fields you want to use.

Okay, that makes sense - allowing for multiple location-based blocks and not imposing lat/long on all catalogs.
