You know the story. You've built a site for an outlet with lots of stores or perhaps an estate agency with lots of properties, and now the client wants an easy way to add locations to their site. So you send them off to Google Maps, tell them which part of the URL they need and get them to paste it into a Lat/Lng field in your CMS. But then you find out that the Google Search didn't return the exact location of what they were after so you tweak the numbers until its just right.
The problem is that I am just too lazy to explain all that to a client, and all that trail and error with numbers is just too much. So please let me introduce to you my first submission to the jQuery plugins library, the jQuery Location Picker.
The code couldn't be simpler, you'll need to include the Google Maps API (which can now be used without an API key), the jQuery Library and the LocationPicker plugin. Then just call the .locationPicker() function on your jQuery object.
Download it at Google Code.
Please note that this plugin is very much in BETA.
