Map Analytics is a Word-press mapping plugin (using Google Maps) from Information Analytics that adds advanced KML support (as well as GeoJSON display) in easy to use fashion to your site, including maps displaying custom icons and layer controls. Just upload a kml like you would any media and insert it on your page via an auto built short-code, it’s that easy. The KML will determine the map view and you can position and size the map via normal css or short code parameters.
After the plug-in is installed. Set your Google API key (if you wish to use static maps that requires special settings in your google account)
Add KML|GeoJSON to a Page or Post
To add a KML (with custom icons or not) first you need a KML. It is easy to build the kml with google earth or even export the kml from your GIS mapping software(icons or images used in your kml should be uploaded on the web – most conveniently upload them to your wordpress site when you build the kml) and referenced from there in your kml as you make it.
Note: An Add Map button using information set in the Map Analytics parameter pane below and a quick Add KML button appears in the visual editor for pages and posts
