One suggestion from me. Have you considered integration with Rules Automation app? This can automate many of the requests for features to you, like create topic when marker is updated, send notifications when marker is updated, create awards when markers are created/updated, etc. It can be like the calendar integration, but much more flexible.

What part of this isn't working with Rules out of the box?

Feature Request: Clubs integration, if the club has a location it would be nice to have the option to display the club on the member map.

Didn't know Clubs could have a location, I can add this in the next update. Will not show private clubs, even if you are a member of it.

No, not now. Too much of the code would have to be re-done to achieve this.

Hi,

It may be difficult to manage for people registered into several clubs, but it could be useful to have the choice of representing club members with a distinct look (color, icon, ...), because "Identify club members location" may be a very useful function for club members (to know where their friends are really located)...

Thank you for your attention.

You are bringing up the main problem with this yourself, what about those that are in several clubs. I can add a button to Clubs that'll take you to the map, but only show members of that club.

For example the location cannot be posted. I want the topic to be from the kind: MemberX just checked in to Location. I will try to play with it manually, probably tomorrow and report the results.

Create the content in manual PHP mode.

//<?php

$embedimage = \IPS\File::get( 'membermap_MarkerStaticMap', $content->embedimage )->url;

$return = "<p>{$content->author()->name} checked in at {$content->location} ({$content->_latLngToDMS})</p>";
$return .= "<p><a href='{$content->url()}'><img src='{$embedimage}' alt=''></a></p>";

return $return;

Result:

That sounds fantastic - any idea of timescale for club support for maps

No, not yet.

It seems that with the latest update it is impossible to delete markers. For both users and admins. I am using Chrome if this is relevant. 

I'm not seeing those issues. What does it look like for you?

When I click "Delete" I don't get the confirmation dialog if I am sure, but another "Delete" line is added to the right click menu, like this: 

 

I wonder if it might be Cloudflare related, can't find another reason. It happens also on the default skin, so not skin related. 

Update to the latest version. That was fixed in 3.3.0.

After having asked that question to you, I've being hard thinking on that problem, there are some solutions, but I've not found a "perfect" one. So here are my thoughts, note that they're not necessary exclusive from each other :
. Each member has the possibility to choose his "default club" displayed for the global map (could result on a terrible mess) ;
. Administrators choose through the PCA how a member is displayed (force default club or define some kind of club priorities);
. When displaying global map, you choose "all members" or "member of CCC club" (CCC being the specific club in question). Choosed through a combobox list or side-list ;
. In all cases, it seems reasonable to allow the clubs (or administrators through the PCA) define a map look (color, icon, ...) for each club ;

Just to confirm … the location search box for adding markers has an intended granularity no finer than city? In US for example I can only find general locations by city, county, state. So should not expect to locate a street address for instance. 

I know this an IPS thing not a membermap thing  but has any membermap user found a satisfactory workaround for removing large numbers of markers that belong to a standard usergroup (such as 'registered') but that have been flagged as 'banned.' I have hundreds and so far I can only remove them one by one.
