Notes about Google Maps for Business


Generated signature is based on specific URL and private cryptographic key.

In order to use your private key within this module you'll have to save it in module configuration settings, which are stored as plain text in your database. Google's documentation, on the other hand, explicitly states that this private key should not be "stored on any websites".

Use this feature at your own risk and only if you're fully aware of the risks involved!

Code used by this module for generating encoded signatures was adapted from Google's Extended URL signing gallery sample for PHP: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/urlsigning/UrlSigner.php-source.

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
