NextEuropaMap Module is tailored to European Union maps
“There are several alternative ways to make maps in Drupal based websites, but they all come with many configurable options, or require a combination of multiple modules”, explains Boris Doesborg, one of the Drupal software developers working on the European Commission’s Europa Platform. “NextEuropaMap is a basic module, for straightforward use cases and requires little configuration. The aim is to let users create maps, without the need for assistance from a site administrator.”
The European Commission plans to consolidate hundreds of its websites on its upcoming Europa Platform, which is being developed on Drupal 7, and the NextEuropMap module will be part of this.
Development of the module is funded by the EC’s Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology (DG Connect), with assistance from Drupal developers working for the Directorate-General for Informatics (DIGIT). The module is available on GitHub, and published under the European Union’s free software licence, the EUPL.
