This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Mapsian enables you to easily create as many locations and maps as you want by using google maps API V3. You can organize locations by groups and add groups to each map you created, making filterable, sortable, and customizable. Also you can display maps and locations on any WordPress posts and pages by simply using shortcodes.

Mapsian 플러그인은 구글 지도를 편리하게 만들고, 관리할 수 있는 플러그인입니다. 대한민국에서 개발하여 세계인들이 함께 사용할 수 있도록 다국어를 지원하며, 위치(Location)들을 그룹으로 분류하여 다양한 형태로 필터링하여 보여줄 수 있는 기능은 어느 플러그인에서도 볼 수 없는 참신한 기능입니다.
