All content originates somewhere in the world and when the location context matters, Map provides you with a way to visualise it. Display content clusters on a range of fully customisable, interactive mapping solutions powered by Google Maps, Open Streetmaps, CartoDB and Mapzen.
Show your audience where content is being posted in real-time. Go one step further and link this Map to a content Widget to provide a geolocation based content filtering experience - as users drill down into map clusters, show them the content posted from that region.
Note: As you know, location data is sensitive information, and not all networks or users provide this. So, there are a few things to keep in mind when considering a Map widget:
The Map widget will only display posts that have location data.
Location data is only included in a post, when the user has explicitly chosen to tag their location.
