Venue Map - all Venues
Each venue has an address and can display a Google Map showing people where it is.
I need a single map which displays all venues. (Perhaps restrict the map to include only venues with events in a given date range.) For the map markers, allow a different marker per category, with venue details in a pop-up box, and marker grouping in case there are several venues close to each other.
Several GPL plugins exist to produce a decent multi-marker map. Perhaps integration with one of them?

Restrict map to include only venues with events in a given date range, also include event date and location of venue in the pop-up (in our case city, ST)
dear sé reed - i solved some of the issues creating a venue 'post' plus creating a happening 'category' then generated a map shortcode per the following instructions...
There’s a “featured venue” widget and shortcode, for example, which may work well for you — learn more about it here

Yes please! I found some code for a venue map shortcode in the forums, but i can't get it working. if you guys could, and include it in TECP that would be great!
trying to understand follow up comments
> anonymous - where do we find 'category to display - does not appear an option on venue map - please elaborate, ty
> modern tribe - this shortcode - are you suggesting to modify software shortcode. what happens when events upgrades - please elaborate on your suggestion, ty
Display venues on the gg map / choose category to display / link to venue page
This shortcode may help toward this feature request: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/8ecb7022d92f9c989e2e72ecdcf25c60
This is a great suggestion. We have 300+ Venues that host different types of Events. It would be great to give customers the capability to have a look at a map and decide visually which venue is suitable for them to attend.
today city fairs that are four days to one week are commonplace. the nyc boroughs example is a perfect example (milan, paris, london, etc.) each venue tends to have similar categories (exhibit, party, class/workshop, etc.) where a different category marker greatly assists planning these complex happenings.
I would like to have the option to display on a map the places, contemplating the following options for each location:
1. cheking to represent the place on the map or not present.
2. Icon to point on the map.
Would be something like this.
Also add a REGION field to venues, and enable the map to be filtered by REGION. We are in New York City. New York City has 5 boroughs (or counties) Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, & Staten Island. Adding a map with a REGION filter would enable us to list venues by borough, or by Manhattan neighborhoods (e.g., Upper East Side, Greenwich Village, etc.)
A little more attention to Venues is helpful because while events are cool, Venues pay the bills.
