There is a google maps plugin for WordPress so the answer is probably yes. However, for now I want to keep it simple as a static content server using only client-side computation. I have some python programs that build the pages from images dumped into species/site-specific directories, and some data files pulled from fishbase. This would have to change if I wanted to make it into a social experiment with others adding new dive sites, mapping data, photos, videos, etc. My current system can evolve into that, but I will deal with it if the need arises (and if it can be done without becoming a full-time job).
After return from my Philippines trip I have been working away on the reef biomapping website and the latest version is both aesthetically and functionally close to my vision. To demonstrate the functionallity I have uploaded 20 butterflyfish and two nudibranch and will be adding a few more features and automation steps before adding the remaining hundreds of fish and dozens of invertebrates.
Unfortunately, Google's map that was so pretty at the start of this project has been updated by a version that is completely clouded over. My bad luck, but I hope Google will rectify this in a future update. The latest version can be found here:
