  3. Get the location longitude

    {{ entry.fieldName.long }}
  4. Display a map with the location. Options is an array, see options part

    {{ entry.fieldName.getMap()|raw }}

Usage sample to display a map with more locations

To display more locations on the same map (a marker for every location), we use the twig function dolphiqMap. Lets say we have a structure called hospitals with entries that each have a location field. To display a map with all locations do the following in a twig template:

{% set hospitals = craft.entries.section('hospitals').all() %}
{% set locations = {} %}

{% for hospital in hospitals %}

    {% set locations = locations|merge({(loop.index) : hospital.location}) %}
{% endfor %}

{{ dolphiqMap(locations, {width:'100%', height:'500px'})|raw }}
