TeamSQL Extensions: Google Maps

One of the biggest perks to using TeamSQL is its extensibility. One size does not fit all, and what your colleague needs in their data client might not be what you need in yours. As such, TeamSQL will ship with a default set of features, and you can add as much as you’d like to create the client that works best for you!

Today, we will take a look at one of the extensions currently available in the Extensions Store: Google Maps.


What does the Google Maps Extension do?

So let’s say that your dataset returns a set of coordinate points. You can highlight the data points, right-click to display the options menu, and select Show in Google Maps.




This launches a new window with a Google map showing you the location indicated by the coordinate points.





How does this help me?

Location-related data is commonly stored and used, and by installing this extension, you can get additional information from a set of coordinate points you’ve stored in your database without storing any additional information. You can leverage the power of Google Maps while working in TeamSQL.
