Nearby Places is an extension of Progress Map WordPress plugin. The “Nearby Places” plugin allows you to display various places – also known as “Points of Interest” – nearby a location/post on the map. The points of Interest are those provided by Google Maps.
The plugin was designed to be used with the posts/locations added from “Progress Map”. It also provides a powerful search form that allows the users to target their position or to enter a given address, then, display all nearby points of interest.
The power of this plugin doesn’t end here. This plugin supports all the place types in Google Maps. When a user selects a place type (e.g. Schools), a list of all nearby places will be displayed. Each place comes with a details page
