Nearby Places is an extension of Progress Map WordPress plugin. The “Nearby Places” plugin allows you to display various places – also known as “Points of Interest” – nearby a location/post on the map. The points of Interest are those provided by Google Maps.
The plugin was designed to be used with the posts/locations added from “Progress Map”. It also provides a powerful search form that allows the users to target their position or to enter a given address, then, display all nearby points of interest.
The power of this plugin doesn’t end here. This plugin supports all the place types in Google Maps. When a user selects a place type (e.g. Schools), a list of all nearby places will be displayed. Each place comes with a details page that can be accessed by the user in order see the place address, distance, website, … photos and reviews. The user will have the possibility to display the route to the place on the map, the possibility to switch between the different travel modes (Driving, Transit, Walking & Bycicling), and the possibility to display the directions to the place. All of this was designed to be displayed inside a widget without the need to reload the browser’s page.
The plugin was designed with customization in mind. It can be customized from the admin panel in order to match the general look of your website.
