Get A WordPress Map Plugin That Helps Bring Online Visitors To You

Maps have come a long way. Gone are the days of maps that would reload every time you needed to zoom in, zoom out, or look at a different quadrant. AJAX has made maps faster and more intuitive to use, while map service providers have gone out of their way to provide developer-friendly APIs that make it easy to add maps to your site. As a result of these developments, there are now a number of different plugins that allow you to put customized, interactive maps on your WordPress website. Take a look at some of the plugins below to see what you can do.

Leaflet Maps Marker - allows you to pin, organize & show your favorite places through OpenStreetMap, Google Maps, Google Earth (KML), Bing Maps, GeoJSON, GeoRSS or Augmented-Reality browsers.

Some feedback:
I was going to give a go to the Leaflet Maps Maker. I installed it, but the plugin uses a lot of memory resources. I'm not a big fan of allocating more resources to any plugin. So, I had to delete it because it threw a fatal error if I didn't give it more memory.

It looks like a really nice plugin after visiting their website, but a big resource pig.

Anyone else using it?
